GMDSS (Global Marine Distress and Safety System) is a multi-function communications system that can automate co-ordinate and facilitate the Search and Rescue process.

The IC-GM1600 features waterproof construction, designed to IP-X7 specifications* with a new, 'Speed Water Removal' function that quickly sheds water from the speaker system, assuring you sharp, clear communications even in the worst conditions. All knobs are sized for quick operation and the large, well-labelled buttons feature a positive action 'feel' with a programmable beep tone for sure operation.

The IC-GM1600’s high-intensity LCD read out offers high-contrast, wide-angle readability with 4 levels of contrast and 3 levels of backlighting. There are new, bright, LED indicators for easy recognition in all types of weather/lighting conditions.Finally, the IC-GM1600’s shock-resistant housing is constructed of a brightly coloured dye-injected polymer assuring this essential piece of emergency equipment will always be easy to find, in a survival bag, in a life raft, and in a pinch.Available: March 2005
