Icom IC-M73 Plus – VHF Waterproof Handheld Radio


The IC-M73PLUS builds on many of the features that made the IC-M71 the choice of many maritime professionals across the globe but also incorporates two new important features; a new voice recording function and Icom’s active Noise Cancelling Technology.


Last Call Voice Recording. The last call voice recording function automatically saves the last incoming call for up to 1 minute. You can also start recording manually. You will not miss an important call.


Active Noise Cancelling Technology. The built-in bidirectional active noise cancelling reduces background noise by up to 90% and improves both your transmitted voice and incoming calls. You will hear and be heard better and clearer!


700mW Loud Audio. The IC-M73 PLUS uses a BTL (bridge-tied load) amplifier that doubles the audio output. Its internal speaker delivers a loud 700mW audio output with clear sound even in noisy environments.


6W RF Output Power. The IC-M73PLUS’s 6 Watts of transmit power will provide an extended communication range for the user. Typical operation with a 5:5:90 duty ratio.


Bass Boost Function. The signal processing technology emphasizes low-pitched sound to provide a rich bass sound for both transmitting and receiving signals.
