The Icom IC-M35, is the latest of Icom's rugged marine handheld transceivers and just like the IC-M33 it actually floats. If the radio is dropped over the side, it will come to the surface so you can retrieve it. The IC-M35 also comes with a great new feature that all boat users will love - Clear Voice Boost!
The IC-M35 has an easy to see large LCD (32 x 16 mm) with a clear 2-digit channel number indication. The LCD is laid out on the top of the front panel so as not to be covered with your hand. LCD and key backlighting is standard for night time operation.
Clear Voice Boost (Clear Voice + Voice Boost)
In marine environments there are many sources of noise that can affect the quality of your communications, such as engine noise, wind and waves etc. The IC-M35 automatically adjusts the outgoing voice and the incoming audio to compensate for the ambient noise level: whether you're in a loud environment or in a quiet area, the IC-M35 ensures your radio conversation is sent and received as clearly as possible
Noise cancelling microphone
The sub-microphone on the rear panel inverts phase and cancels out ambient noise from the main microphone. As a result, the IC-M35 reduces the affect of background noise from the transmitted signal and makes it easier to understand voice communication. In a high noise environment, the sub-microphone also detects the ambient noise and the IC-M35 automatically increases the volume output to suit the surrounding environment.
Another innovative feature is the "AquaQuake" draining function - a vibrating sound from the loudspeaker clears water away from the speaker grille.
Favorite Channel Function
Quick channel selection with Favourite channel function. Tag your favourite or often used channels then push the “Fav” button, so that you can recall those channels, while ignoring untagged channels.
The IC-M35 employs a bridge-tied load (BTL) audio amplifier to increase the audio output power. The internal speaker delivers a loud 700mW (typical) audio output with clear sound even in noisy environments.
Although the IC-M35 delivers a high 6W RF output and 700mW audio output, its current saving circuit offers up to 8 hours of operating time with the supplied 980mAh Lithium-Ion battery pack.
