To start, this radio not only floats, but emits a flash when it goes overboard, making it easy to spot in the water. More than a radio, the iCOM M93D also has Global Navigation Satellite System capabilities that fixes positioning within eight to twelve seconds and boast 50 waypoints. It can calculate location, bearing and speed. The extra-large, high contrast LCD screen and flat, positive click keyboard, not only allow for a simple user experience but also increase visibility of data in direct sunlight or rough weather. Not only is this radio impressive visually but also audibly, the active noise canceling feature removes background audio digitally and the Aqua Quake system drains water from the speaker and microphone, meaning despite the breeze and waves, your transmissions will always be crystal clear.
