Clear voice + voice boost
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-M36 ensures your radio conversation is sent and received as clearly as possible.
The M36 floats even if the optional speaker microphone, HM-165, is attached.
AquaQuake draining function clears water away from the speaker grill.
When you need an instant “boost” in the volume, a simple push of the “LOUD” button gives you full volume immediately. In addition, holding the “LOUD” button mutes the audio output.
Noise cancelling microphone; the sub-microphone on the rear panel inverts phase and cancels out ambient noise from the main microphone.
When in an engine room or high noise environment, the sub-microphone detects the ambient noise and the IC-M36 automatically increases the volume output to suit the surrounding environment.
Although the IC-M36 delivers a high 6W RF output and 700mW audio output, its current saving circuit offers a practical 8 hours* of operating time with the supplied 980mAh Lithium-Ion battery pack.
*Typical operation with Tx (Hi): Rx: standby=5:5:90
Thanks to the large, easy-to-operate buttons, the IC-M36 provides intuitive operation. A pinched-waist slender body makes it easy to hold and carry the radio, and is surprisingly compact for a floating radio.
