Icom IC-M23 ‘Float’n Flash’ VHF handheld marine radio at Sydney Boat Show

Icom Australia has just released the IC-M23 ‘Float’n Flash’ VHF handheld marine radio.

The unit combines the fantastic buoyant construction of previous Icom handhelds with a new flashing feature, allowing it to be detected in the water.

The IC-M23 is the smallest and lightest floating 5W handheld marine VHF radio currently available.

The flashing feature works by using water to complete a small electrical circuit.

The radio will begin to flash as soon as it hits the water, allowing it to easily be identified during low-light conditions.

The radio will flash in the water even when turned off!

To see the IC-M23 in action, visit Icom on Stand 442 at the Sydney Boat Show.
