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, breaking surf and
more. The IC-M36 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.
And yes, it floats
Continuing the legacy of the IC-M34, the IC-M36 floats back up to
the surface if dropped overboard, even if the optional speaker
microphone, HM-165, is attached.
AquaQuake draining function
The vibrating "buzz" sound 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. As a result, the IC-M36 reduces
the affect of background noise (particularly
trebly noise) from the transmitted signal and
makes it easier to catch voice communication.
Automatic volume adjustment
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
Low power consumption
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
Large buttons and slim dimensions
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.
