The Icom IC-M35 is a popular transceiver perfect for use in marine conditions and high-intensity scenarios. It is a radio which is built to withstand loud noise to provide clear, crisp audio, as well as to withstand water submersion. It grades to IPX7, which means you can drop it in water for around 30 minutes at up to a metre. That’s reliability you can count on.
This radio accounts for ambient noise and works hard to balance incoming audio and that which is outgoing. As such, it is one of the best Icom models on the market for ease of communication. It is also extremely easy to use, with simple buttons and display functionality allowing new users to get up to speed with minimal effort. Use auto scan to hunt down the best channels, as well as anyone who may be likely to connect with you nearby. It is a fantastic ocean-ready radio right out of the box.
