Clear Voice Boost and It Floats!

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.

Continuing the legacy of the IC-M34, the fully submersible 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.

LOUD button
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 surrounding environment.

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 hours1 of operating time with the supplied 980mAh Lithium-Ion battery pack.1Typical 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.

Easy to use handheld... November 15, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from New England and Florida  
I've regularly used this handheld for the past three months since purchasing for recreational boating, both in the New Hampshire Lakes region and in southwest Florida in Pine Island Sound.  The radio is very light and comes with a belt clip and AC charger.  With a full charge in the morning, the radio may lose one bar of charge by the end of the day (8-10 hours).  Lots of push to talk activity will probably use more battery.
Easy to use volume, squelch and channel controls, with a push to talk and listening range of ~3-5nm.  Easy to select weather and emergency channels and the scan function allows the user to scan out of the box programmed channels, or the ability to customize the channels scanned.
Excellent all around hand held...would recommend it to a friend.
