Icom displayed a pair of new commercial GMDSS radios for the first time on their booth at METS. On show were the GM800 MF/HF SSB and GM600 VHF transceivers.
Both models are in the final stages of type approval and will meet the stringent standards required for SOLAS regulated commercial vessels and MED, ‘wheel mark’ approval for European merchant ships.
They feature a modern design and layout. A colour TFT LCD provides a user-friendly display and quick recognition of screen information. Day and night modes can be selected according to the lighting conditions.
For more information on the specification of the GM600 and GM800 have a look at the Pre Release Specification PDS's above.
