Covers PMR frequency 136–174 MHz

In addition to marine VHF channels, the IC-M85E covers PMR channels 136–174 MHz. Up to 100 programmable channels are available for PMR use.

Each channel is programmable with CTCSS tone and DTCS.

Powerful 700 mW sound

The IC-M85E uses a BTL (bridge-tied load) amplifier that doubles the audio output.

Its internal speaker provides a powerful 700mW sound output with clear sound.

Private Chat

Automatic emergency alarm

The IC-M85E has three emergency-related functions: MOB, Man Down and Lone Worker alarm functions. If one of these functions is activated, the transceiver automatically activates an emergency alarm.
