The ICOM M73E Plus VHF Radio is the ideal solution if you are looking for a solid and sturdy two-way marine radio option that delivers high quality voice communication in extreme environments and at an affordable price. It is the European version of the original M73 radio and comes with a very generous frequency range; perfect for calling in help from the bridge of a ship in stormy conditions.

Key Features of the ICOM IC-M73E

Upon handling the ICOM M73E Plus VHF Radio, one of the first things you will notice is its build strength and ruggedness. This is because it is designed to be fully operative in harsh environments, and its combination of hardened plastic and metal casing, for comfort and strength in equal measure, lends itself nicely to this. Rubber buttons provide an encouraging press, assuring the user that their vocal instructions will be heard.

The overall usability of the M73E, with its simple approach to tuning and channel selection performed at the press of a button, is super intuitive, making stressful situations easier to handle. Push-to-talk is situated on the side of the device. Pressing it activates transmit mode and releasing puts the radio back into receive, all performed with minimal effort.

With battery levels that can last up to two months, depending on usage, this two-way radio is energy-efficient, but comes with a rapid charge BC-210 Rapid Charging Station to restore battery levels to full in no time.

Coverage Area by ICOM IC-M73E

Transmission and frequency levels help set this utility radio apart too. With a 700mW internal speaker pattern and 200mW external speaker pattern, the M73E can attach to 156.000-161.450MHz (Tx) 156.00-163.425MHz (Rx) frequencies, sending crisp and clear voice comms over distances of at least 10 miles. It is used confidently by today’s commercial sailors, yachtsmen, and crew aboard vessels of all sizes.

Durability of ICOM IC-M73E

The IC-M73E continues to offer ICOM’s best waterproof protection. The radio has been tested to survive after being submersed in 1.5m (4.9ft) depth of water for 30 minutes.
