New Icom IC-M35 Marine VHF with Clear Voice Boost …and, of course, it floats!

Icom is pleased to launch the new IC-M35 buoyant VHF marine handheld transceiver. The IC-M35 is the latest in Icom’s line-up of rugged marine handhelds and comes with a great new feature that all boat users will love – Clear Voice Boost!

So what is Clear Voice Boost? Imagine a radio that’s smart enough to adjust its own volume level to account for the surrounding noise level. The IC-M35 does just that, it measures the ambient sound pressure level so that you will not miss communications during a sudden burst of noise. It’s very common to have an auto-adjusting volume level feature found on radios in today’s new cars, but the IC-M35 automatically adjusts the TRANSMIT level as well! Your conversation is sent and received as clearly as possible no matter how noisy the background is. For manual override, a 'LOUD' button can be activated with just one push, giving you immediate full volume level. In addition, the IC-M35 has a real noise-cancelling microphone built in as well.

The IC-M35 has also been designed to float in the water. Drop the IC-M35 over the side of your boat and it will rise to the surface. Because the IC-M35 is waterproof to IPX-7, it will keep on working after it has been submerged. For users who want 'hands free use' a new waterproof speaker microphone is available which when attached will still allow the IC-M35 to float.

The IC-M35 uses a lightweight Lithium-Ion battery giving a full 8 hours of use on a single charge. (Typical usage: 5% transmit/ 5% receive/ 90% standby.) Transmit power is 6 watts which is a full watt higher than other handheld marine VHF radios except Icom's IC-M71. To extend operating time the power level can be reduced down to 1 watt when required.

The IC-M35 will be available for sale at the London Boat Show 2009 with a retail price of £194.95 (inc. VAT). The IC-M35 comes complete with the Li-ion battery pack, charger, and AC adapter. An extended 3 year warranty will be available for this product.

Ian Lockyer, Marketing Manager of Icom UK Ltd said, 'The IC-M35 is an affordably priced radio that looks, feels, and performs like a high-priced radio. The Clear Voice Boost feature is a fantastic innovation which we know boat users will love.'
