Clear Voice Boost and It Floats!

 

Go fetch your own M36Clear voice + voice boost

In marine environments there are many sources of noise that can affect the quality of your communications, such as engine noise, breaking surf and more. The IC-M36 automatically adjusts the outgoing voice and the incoming audio to compensate for the ambient noise level: whether you're in a loud environment or in a quiet area, the IC-M36 ensures your radio conversation is sent and received as clearly as possible.

And yes, it floats

The M36 floatsContinuing the legacy of the IC-M34, the IC-M36 floats back up to the surface if dropped overboard, even if the optional speaker microphone, HM-165, is attached.

AquaQuake draining function

The vibrating "buzz" sound clears water away from the speaker grill.

LOUD button

When you need an instant “boost” in the volume, a simple push of the “LOUD” button gives you full volume immediately. In addition, holding the “LOUD” button mutes the audio output.

Noise cancelling microphone

The sub-microphone on the rear panel inverts phase and cancels out ambient noise from the main microphone. As a result, the IC-M36 reduces the affect of background noise (particularly trebly noise) from the transmitted signal and makes it easier to catch voice communication.

Automatic volume adjustment

When in an engine room or high noise environment, the sub-microphone detects the ambient noise and the IC-M36 automatically increases the volume output to suit the surrounding environment.

Low power consumption

Although the IC-M36 delivers a high 6W RF output and 700mW audio output, its current saving circuit offers a practical 8 hours* of operating time with the supplied 980mAh Lithium-Ion battery pack.
*Typical operation with Tx (Hi): Rx: standby=5:5:90

Large buttons and slim dimensions

Thanks to the large, easy-to-operate buttons, the IC-M36 provides intuitive operation. A pinched-waist slender body makes it easy to hold and carry the radio, and is surprisingly compact for a floating radio.
