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.
