IPX7, Waterproof Construction
The IC-M87 ATEX is built tough to withstand hazardous and unhospitable environments at sea and on land. Even if the IC-M87 ATEX is dropped into water, the IPX7 waterproof construction will protect it from harm (1 m depth for 30 minutes). The compact and durable body also has been tested to US. military specifi cations (MIL-STD 810).
Li-ion Battery for Extra Long Battery Life
With the standard 1950 mAh (typ.) rechargeable Li-ion battery pack, BP-227AX, the IC-M87 ATEX allows you up to 19 hours of operating time.*
* Typical operation; Tx: Rx: Stand-by duty ratio = 5: 5: 90
22 Programmable Channels for PMR Use
The IC-M87 ATEX has 22 programmable channels for PMR use (146–
174 MHz). Wide/narrow channel spacing is programmable for each channel, and CTCSS and DTCS signaling is built-in.
* Appropriate license will be required.
Built-in Voice Scrambler
The IC-M87 ATEX has a built-in 32 code voice scrambler. The voice scramble is compatible with the UT-112 which is adopted to some Icom marine radios.
