Icom M25 VHF Radio

A compact waterproof VHF radio for boating and marine paddlesports. Highly recommended for personal safety, especially if paddling solo on the sea. This radio has a floating design and will flash if dropped into the water making it easier to locate the unit. 5W transmit power with 11 hour battery life with typical use makes this a great option for general day-use for boating and kayaking on the sea. Recharging time is approximately 3 hours using the supplied Micro-B USB charger with AC adaptor. Large buttons make the M25 easy to use and the 550mW audio output provides easy listening even in windy conditions. A backlit LCD screen clearly displays operating channel, battery life indicator and other useful information to make this VHF easy to operate and understand.
