The IC-M23 buoyant VHF Marine Handheld Transceiver measures just under 13cm in height and is the smallest and lightest buoyant handheld in the market*. Even with its incredible size, the IC-M23 can match the audio and battery performance of other comparable models on the market. What’s more, the IC-M23 sports a bright red LED which flashes if dropped in water, even if the radio is turned off making it easy to find, day or night.

An important safety feature of the buoyant IC-M23 is that it has a bright internal red LED which automatically starts flashing on three sides of the base of the radio when it comes into contact with water. This function will be especially useful if the radio is dropped in the water in low light conditions or even at night.

The IC-M23 is powered by the BP-266 3.7V Lithium-Ion battery pack. A newly developed PA circuit provides stable 5W (approx.) RF output and powerful 600mW (typ.) audio even at this low voltage, while saving battery consumption giving 10 hours of operating time.* * Typical operation with Tx (Hi): Rx: standby=5:5:90

While the IC-M23 has a smaller and lighter body compared to the IC-M35, the IC-M23 keeps the same easy to see large LCD (32x16 mm). The large LCD has a clear 2-digit channel number indication. LCD and key backlighting are built-in for night time operation.
