Long Range Communications Beyond the Horizon
Distress Button for Emergency
Distress button with a spring-loaded cover
If in an emergency situation, press the large independent Distress button to send an automated digital Distress signal. The digital distress signal with GPS coordinates calls for help from other ships or coast stations.
Built-in DSC Watch-Keeping Receiver with the Multiple Task Mode
The dedicated DSC watch-keeping receiver continuously scans the six distress channels in rotation. A total of 100 MMSI numbers (75 Individual and 25 Group) for DSC calls can be stored with a 10-character ID name. When you receive a DSC call, while you are in process with another DSC call, the IC-M803 can hold both DSC procedures to switch between the DSC calls with the Multiple Task Mode function.
Intuitive User Interface
A combination of the large main dial and software keys at the bottom of the display, provides simple operation and easy access to often used functions. You can smoothly enter channel numbers, MMSI numbers, vessel names with the alpha-numeric keypad. In addition, one of software key functions can be assigned to the microphone’s programmable button for quick access.
4.3 inch Wide Viewing Angle Color TFT Display
The 4.3 inch color TFT display provides an almost 180 degree very wide viewing angle and displays high resolution characters and function icons. You can clearly see the display information from various viewing angles. So the radio can be installed without choosing the installation place. The night mode display ensures good readability in low light conditions.
