* As of November 2017, researched by Icom.
Covering 136–174 MHz PMR Frequency
In addition to VHF marine channels, the IC-M85E covers 136–174 MHz PMR channels. Up to 100 programmable channels are available for PMR use. Each channel is programmable with CTCSS and DTCS tone.
700 mW Powerful Audio
Despite its compact body, the IC-M85E delivers 700 mW of loud audio. Clear communications is vital in noisy environments.
The radio has a built-in Voice Scrambler and provides private communication between stations (32-code, compatible with UT-112 voice scrambler unit).
Automated Emergency Alarm
The IC-M85E has three emergency related functions: the MOB Alarm, Man Down and Lone Worker functions. If one of these functions are activated, the radio automatically makes an emergency alarm.
Instant Operation with Multi-Function Button
Channel group changing (marine ⇔ PMR) or the scrambler function ON/OFF can be assigned in the multi-function button on the top panel*. The Key lock function can be activated by holding the button.
