IC-M85E VHF/PBR Marine Radio
Designed with a particular emphasis on commercial use the IC-M85E is a high-class waterproof marine handheld radio that meets both marine and simple Private Business Radio (PBR) applications. Compact and with a robust modern construction, the IC-M85E contains critical commercial features including a built-in voice scrambler ensuring private conversation and emergency features including Man down and lone worker function.
Compact and Lightweight
The IC-M85E is the most compact (W×H×D: 56 × 92 × 29 mm) and lightweight (weight: 246 g (with BP-290, FA-SC58V, and MBB-3)) commercial grade marine and land mobile hybrid radio in the world (as of November 2017, researched by Icom).
Up to 100 PMR Channels (Appropriate Licence is Required)
In addition to marine VHF channels, the IC-M85E covers 136–174 MHz PMR channels. Up to 100 programmable channels are available for PMR use. Each channel is programmable with CTCSS and DTCS tone.
Selectable MOB Alarm, Man Down, and Lone Worker Functions
The IC-M85E has three emergency-related functions: Selectable MOB Alarm (when used with other IC-M85 radios), Man Down and Lone Worker functions. If one of these functions are activated, the radio automatically makes an emergency alarm.
Built-in Voice Scrambler
The radio has a built-in Voice Scrambler and provides private communication between stations (32-code, compatible with UT-112 voice scrambler unit).
Instant Operation with Multi-Function Button
Channel group changing (Marine PMR) or the scrambler function ON/OFF can be assigned to the multi-function button on the top panel*. The Keylock function can be activated by holding the button.
