IC-M710 - MF/HF Marine Transceiver


Quick Specs:
Single sideband radiotelephone
RX: 500 KHz-29.9999 MHz
TX: marine HF bands (see detailed specifications)
Output power: 150 W


Simple, dependable worldwide communications at an affordable price.

1136 channels
160 user-programmable, 242 ITU SSB duplex, 72 ITU SSB simplex and 662 ITU FSK duplex channels are available.

Rugged construction
The highest quality components are used throughout. Constructed in a die-cast aluminum chassis with surface mount components, the IC-M710 is designed for long hours of operation in ht harsh marine environment.

Alphanumeric readout
The large, easy-to-read display shows status at a glance. Seven characters can be programmed into each memory channel to conveniently display station manes, ship names, etc.

150 W of output power
A full 150 W (PEP) of output power is available for reliable long distance communication. A large cooling fan, in combination with the aluminum chassis, allows continuous transmission at full output power, even during demanding RTTY (radio teletype) and NBDP (narrow band direct printing) operation.

Automatic tuning function
An automatic tuning function is available when using the IC-M710 in combination with the optional AT-130/E for quick and easy antenna tuning. Tuning is fully automatic. When you push the PTT on a new frequency, the antenna tuner quickly tunes the antenna automatically.

Easy to use
Two large memory and frequency dials allow quick and easy operation.

GMDSS versions available
Versions which comply with GMDSS requirements are available. With the addition of an IC-GM110 DSC terminal the radio meets DSC class A requirements.
