The ICOM IC-M73PLUS builds on many of the features that made the ICOM IC-M71 the choice of many maritime professionals across the globe but also incorporates two new important features:

New Voice Recording function

The last call voice recording function automatically saves the last incoming call for up to 1 minute. You can also start recording manually. You will not miss an important call.

Active Noise Cancelling Technology

The built-in bi-directional active noise cancelling reduces background noise by up to 90% and improves both your transmitted voice and incoming calls. You will hear and be heard better and clearer.

In addition to the two features above the ICOM IC-M73 PLUS also includes the following features and functions:

Bass Boost Function

The signal processing technology emphasizes low pitched sound to provide a rich bass sound for both transmit and receive signals.

700mW Loud Audio

The IC-M73PLUS uses a BTL (bridge-tied load) amplifier that doubles the audio output. Its internal speaker delivers a loud 700mW audio output with clear sound even in noisy environments.

6W RF Output Power

The IC-M73PLUS’s 6 Watts of transmit power will provide extended communication range for the user. 
*Typical operation with 5:5:90 duty ratio.

IPX8 Advanced Waterproofing

The IC-M73PLUS 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. Use this radio in the rain, snow or any other severe weather conditions!

Slim, Hourglass Body, Wide Viewing Angle LCD

The IC-M73PLUS has a stylish, ergonomic design. A durable and rugged body provides for user friendly operation and long life. A wide viewing angle, high intensity LCD offers bright, easy to read characters.
