iCom Handheld VHF Radios with Charging Base

Dinghy Rope have recently supplied 6 iCom handheld VHF radios and a charging base to a local sailing club.

The radios are going to be used to for a variety of events the sailing club host and will also help in the expansion of their RYA Training Center.

Upto now the club had been using individual radios on their own stand, quite often the chargers would get moved or a radio misplaced where it hadn't been put away in the correct location. The charging base gives a major advantage in keeping the radios in the same place while also ensuring they are fully charged when they're needed.

In this case we supplied 6 iCom IC-M73 handheld VHF radios to go into the charging base. This is the lowest spec radio which can be used in the charging base.

The radios have the following features:

  • 700mW Loud Audio
  • 6W RF Output Power
  • IPX8 Advanced Waterproofing
  • Slim, Hourglass Body, Wide Viewing Angle LCD
  • AquaQuake water draining function
  • Dual/Tri-Watch function for monitoring Channel 16 and/or call channel
  • Battery indicator shows remaining battery power in 4 levels
  • Favourite channel and tag scan functions

Each individual VHF radio charging base is made to order by iCom where they fit the specific adpator to charge your radio of choice.

The base also has a new smart charging function. This microprocessor-controlled function automatically re-charges the battery as needed to prevent charge from being completely drained. Therefore, even if the radio happens to remain turned-on and keep receiving signals in the charger, it can constantly be re-charged with sufficient charge left for the next use.
