M400BB VHF Marine Black Box

Black Box Transceiver When Space Is At A Premium

Icom's M400BB is a VHF fixed mount with Class D DSC. The M400BB is a spacesaving unit, ideal for owners of compact boats and shipbuilders looking for a black box solution. The M400BB comprises only a black box main body and a supplied COMMANDMIC HM195 remote control microphone accessory. The two-piece radio set can easily be installed behind a wall or console-leaving a small or hidden footprint-and completely controlled from a remote position.

Although compact in size, the M400BB possesses the same robust functionality found in Icom's M424 VHF fixed mount. Features include Class D DSC and the COMMANDMIC intuitive soft-key interface design. Active noise cancelling, a 10W loudspeaker and public address (PA) are built in for optimal audio performance. The M400MB is compatible with Icom's MA-500TR AIS transponder for additional safety at sea.

Space-Saving, 2-Piece Configuration
The IC-M400BB consists of a two-piece, black box configuration. All function control including DSC operation, can be made from the COMMANDMIC™, HM-195B/SW, and the RF unit, IC-M400BB, can be installed in an out-of-sight place.

Intuitive User Interface
The menu system is shared with Icom's latest models. The bottom line of the dot-matrix display shows the software key functions which can be toggled with the left and right buttons.

Active Noise Cancelling
The built-in bidirectional active noise cancelling reduces background noise to up to 90% and improves both your transmitted voice and incoming call. Hear and be heard more clearly.

10W Loud Audio, Public Addres & Foghorn
Built-in 10W amplifier that increases the audio output from an additional external speaker. The public address function allows you to make an announcement from the microphone like a loud speaker, and the foghorn can also be emitted from the external speaker.

Built-in Class D DSC
The built-in DSC watch function monitors Ch.70 (DSC channel) actively, even while you are receiving another channel. DSC functions include: distress, individual, group, all ships, urgency, safety, position request/report, polling request and DSC test calls.

Common NMEA Interface
When connected to an external GPS receiver, current position and time are shown on the Commandmic display. When receiving DSC information from another vessel, the radio can transfer it to a navigational device via NMEA 0183 connectivity.

AIS Target Call With MA-500TR
When connected to the optional MA-500TR Class B AIS transponder, the AIS
target call function allows you to set up an individual DSC call from the MA-500TR.

Additional Features:
  • MarineCommander™ compatible
  • AquaQuake™ water draining function (HM-195B/SW)
  • IPX7 waterproof protection both for IC-M400BB and HM-195B/SW
    (1m depth for 30 minutes)

  • Priority and normal scan

Great Radio September 20, 2017
Reviewer: Derek from Lake Michigan  
One of the best radios I have ever used.  Audio is loud and menu is easy to navigate.  I've got mine interfaced with my GPS and DCS is working great.  Great RX sensitivity.  I will be buying an ICOM handheld to match soon.

Great radio at an unbeatable price September 19, 2017
Reviewer: Gordon Gibbons from South Yarmouth, MA United States  
Hodges had the best price anywhere on the internet. I almost bought this at the nationwide marine store but did a bit of online shopping first. Hodges saved me about 20% off. And is shipped fast and was in my hands in about 48 hours. This unit is perfect for my needs. The black box is tucked away in the console and the handheld unit is small and fully functional.  A great radio all around.

Needs an automatic Fog Horn September 6, 2017
Reviewer: Frankdominick928  
This VHF is a good quality but should have an automatic 2-min Fog Horn capability. When you run in fog, as is most of the time in New England ( Block Island, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket and other), the fog can be very dense and having to hit the fog button every time you want the fog horn to go off is extra work load and not safe. This VHF should be updated with SW to provide an automatic fog horn. Most other high end VHF radios have this capability.
