Icom IC-M324 Fixed Mount VHF Marine Transceivers deliver top performance and excellent value! Icom's common Marine Family User Interface, rotary selector, and directional keypad provide simple operation for the boat owner, and the high-definition dot-matrix display allows for the clear viewing of all information.
Built-in DSC watch functionality allows you to monitor Ch.70 (DSC channel) activity, even while receiving another channel. The DSC functions include individual, distress, all ships, group, urgency, safety, polling request, position request/report, and DSC test calls.
When receiving DSC information from another vessel, the Icom IC-M324 can transfer it to a navigational device via NMEA 0183 connectivity. The Icom IC-M324 Transceiver can also be integrated with the MA-500TR Class B AIS Transponder, allowing you to transmit DSC individual calls to a selected vessel instantly, without manual MMSI entry! This is very handy when waiting to contact vessels on the AIS screen, an essential safety feature in an emergency.
The IC-M324 is able to withstand submersion for 30 minutes in up to 1.0m depth of water. It is equivalent to the IPX7 standard.
The Favorie Channel function allows for quick channel selection, just set the ''Tag'' channel to your most frequently used channels used. Only the tagged channels are selected when pushing the up/down buttons on the hand microphone, conveniently skipping untagged channels.
