VHF MARINE TRANSCEIVER
Black Box Transceiver When Space is at a Premium
Black Box Transceiver – Icom Quality. Small Footprint.
Icom’s M400BB is perfect for boats that need a radio but don’t have room on the helm. The M400BB consists of a two-piece black box configuration. Install the full RF black box unit in an out-of-sight place and connect the COMMANDMICIV™, HM-195 to the cockpit or flybridge. The HM-195 allows the operation of all radio functions, including DSC, radio, and hailer horn. HM-195 also utilizes the same user soft key interface for easy operation.
Space-Saving, Two-Piece Configuration
The IC-M400BB consists of a two-piece, black box configuration. All function control including DSC operation, can be made from the COMMANDMIC™, HM-195B/SW, and the RF unit, IC-M400BB, can be installed in an out-of-sight place.
New Intuitive User Interface
The new menu system is shared with Icom's latest models. The bottom line of the dot-matrix display shows the software key functions which can be toggled with the left and right buttons.
Active Noise Cancelling
The built-in bidirectional active noise cancelling reduces background noise to up to 90% and improves both your transmitted voice and incoming call. Hear and be heard more clearly.
10 W Loud Audio, Public Address and Foghorn
The IC-M400BB has a built-in 10 W amplifier that increases the audio output from an additional external speaker. The public address function allows you to make an announcement from the microphone like a loud speaker, and the foghorn can also be emitted from the external speaker.
Built-in Class D DSC
The built-in DSC watch function monitors Ch. 70 (DSC channel) activity, even while you are receiving another channel. DSC functions include: distress, individual, group, all ships, urgency, safety, position request/report, polling request and DSC test calls.
When connected to an external GPS receiver, current position and time are shown on the COMMANDMIC display. When receiving DSC information from another vessel, the radio can transfer it to a navigational device via NMEA 0183 connectivity.
