ICOM IC-M88 is a handheld VHF marine transceiver offers tough construction with complete waterproofing in a compact form factor.

Tough Construction, Superior Waterproofing

The IC-M88 is built tough to withstand hazardous and inhospitable environments at sea and on land. Even if the IC-M88 is dropped into water, complete waterproofing* will protect it from harm. The compact and durable body has been tested to the military specifications (MIL-STD).
*Equivalent to JIS waterproof grade 7, 1m depth for 30 minutes.

Simple Operation

Six clearly labelled buttons on the front panel and the volume/power knob maximize simplicity of operation. Even when wearing gloves, the large buttons are easy to operate. A large, clear LCD with backlighting and backlit buttons make night time operation simple.

Li-Ion Battery For Extra Long Battery Life

With the standard 1700mAh Li-Ion battery pack, the BP-227, you can get up to 15 hours of talk time* without worrying about 'memory effect' on batteries. An optional AA alkaline battery case, BP-226, provides a convenient back up and great reassurance in an emergency.
*Typical operation; Tx:Rx:Stand-by duty ratio = 5:5:90

Waterproof Speaker-Microphone, HM-138

An optional waterproof speaker-microphone, the HM-138, provides reliable operation, even with the IC-M88 securely on your belt.

22 Programmable Channels For Land Use

The IC-M88 has 22 programmable channels reserved for Land use (146–174MHz). Wide/narrow channel spacing is programmable for each channel, and CTCSS and DTCS signaling is built-in.
