The IC-M23 floats in the water. It not only floats, but flashes a built-in LED light upon contact with water as an aid for retrieval in the dark.
The large LCD has a clear 2-digit channel number indication and backlighting for night time operation.
- Waterproof construction equivalent to IPX7 (1 m depth for 30 minutes).
- Dual/Tri-watch functions.
- 4-step battery life indicator.
- 2-step power save function.
- Auto scan function starts scanning when no signal is received for 30 seconds.
- Instant access to Ch 16 or programmable call channel.
- AquaQuake draining function
- The DC power jack is protected with a water tight plastic cap from water intrusion.
