ICOM M324 VHF Radio
The ICOM M324 VHF Marine Transceiver offers top performance at a great value! This easy-to-operate VHF radio meets the latest Class D DSC specifications. The ICOM M324 does not include a GPS receiver, but its NMEA 0183 interface lets you add external GPS/NAV connection for transferring DSC information to a navigational device. Receives all USA, CAN, INT, and weather channels. Meets IPX7 submersible standard. AquaQuake water draining function clears water away from the speaker grill. Dual watch and tri watch functions. 25/1 watt power output.
Intuitive User Interface
Icom's interface provides simple operation for the boat owner. A rotary selector and directional keypad provide intuitive operation. The high-definition dot-matrix display allows all information to be clearly viewed.
Built-in Class D DSC
The built-in DSC watch function monitors Ch.70 (DSC channel) activity, even while you are receiving another channel. DSC functions include distress, individual, group, all ships, urgency, safety, position request/report, polling request, and DSC test calls.
Common NMEA Interface
When receiving DSC information from another vessel, the IC-M324 Radio can transfer it to a navigational device via NMEA 0183 connectivity.
Compatible with MA-500TR Class B AIS Transponder
The IC-M324 can be integrated with the MA-500TR Class B AIS Transponder, which allows you to transmit DSC individual calls to a selected vessel instantly without manual MMSI entry. It is very handy if you are waiting to contact vessels on the AIS screen - an essential safety feature in an emergency.
IPX7 Submersible Protection
The IC-M324 withstands submersion in up to 1.0m depth of water for 30 minutes. Meets IPX7 standards.
Favorite Channel Function
This function promotes quick channel selection. Set the "Tag" channel to the channels used most often. When pushing the up/down buttons on the hand microphone, only the tagged channels are selected, while untagged channels are skipped.
