SKU: IC-GM1600E MED Category: Tag:


The MED kit version of the Icom IC-GM1600E is hugely popular with ocean operations and marine rescue services.  It is built to withstand extreme weather and temperatures and will also withstand shock and droppage far beyond its competing devices.  Use the device for up to eight hours no matter where you are, all from one charge.

Large keys and single-touch operation make the unit fantastic in a crisis.  It can also operate through a VOX headset, making communications even easier to use in high-pressure circumstances.  One-handed control and simple LCD allow the device to be one of the easiest radios to manipulate in intensive situations.

Grading under MED wheel marks, this radio is toughened against deep water submersion, and allows you to program calls and channels as you use it.  Its large key and display features mean there is very little in the way of a learning curve, perfect for hitting the ground running.
