The clever engineering department at Icom have done it again and produced one of the smallest fixed VHF/DSC radios in the market. The IC-M330GE's front face is so compact that it matches the size of a modern Smartphone. Despite its size, the IC-M330GE has all the hallmarks of Icom's stylish design, ease of use and performance.

The compact IC-M330GE measures only 156.5 (W) × 66.5 (H) ×110.1 (D) mm making it ideal for a cockpit where space is limited. The IC-M330GE features the same common user interface that has been adopted on the latest Icom radios including intuitive "soft-keys" permitting faster access to radio functions.

The IC-M330GE and microphone are waterproof to IPX7 and can withstand submersion in up to a 1 metre depth of water for 30 minutes. The set features an AquaQuake draining function. If water gets into the speaker grill and muffles the speaker's audio, the AquaQuake draining function emits a buzzing sound which sheds water from the speaker system, assuring you sharp, clear communications even in the worst conditions.

A newly designed speaker delivers distortion-free clear audio even at full volume. It provides dynamic and clear audio over a wide bass and treble range. The IC-M330GE's receiver provides reliable communication in an RF busy environment like a marina (Selectivity and IMD: more than 70 dB).

The IC-M330GE includes an integral GPS Receiver which will also allow your current position and time to be used for DSC calls. The external GPS antenna allows for straightforward fitting so for an open top powerboat or at the chart table in a yacht; installation has never been so simple.

The IC-M330GE will be available from Icom stockists from mid January with a suggested retail price of £255.00 (inc.VAT).
