Further details of Icom IC-M506GE Mobile Marine Radio
• VHF/DSC marine transceiver with NMEA 2000 connectivity and AIS receiver. The IC-M506 is packed full of features including integrated AIS receiver, NMEA2000 connectivity, ‘Last Call’ voice recording function, ‘Active Noise Cancelling’ technology plus Icom’s new intuitive menu-driven user interface and large dot matrix display making it really easy to use.
• Integrated AIS Receiver. With an integrated AIS receiver, the IC-M506EURO can show real-time AIS vessel traffic information on the display. The AIS target call function allows you to easily set up a DSC individual call. The Plotter, Target list and Danger list can be toggled on the display.
• NMEA 2000™ Connectivity. With the plug-and-play functionality of NMEA 2000, the IC-M506EURO can easily connect to a NMEA 2000 network. The IC-M506EURO can receive and transmit GPS (position, course (COG) and speed (SOG)), AIS report and DSC call information data and transmit radio frequency and PGN list data on the network. AIS data can only be displayed when connected to a compatible device via NMEA 2000. When using NMEA 0183, the IC-M506n2Kversion will only output DSC and GPS data.
• Last Call Voice Recording. The last call voice recording function automatically saves the last two minutes of the last incoming call. You can re¬play the received call, and not miss any incoming call.
• Active Noise Cancelling. Using digital signal processing technology, the built-in bidirectional active noise cancelling provides superb performance. It reduces background noise to up to 90% in the received signal and 30% fixed in the transmit¬ting signal. The function OFF setting is also possible.
• Intuitive Menu-Driven User Interface. The intuitive software key functions provide easy and fast operation to control the multiple functions of the IC-M506EURO. The bottom line of the dot-ma¬trix display shows the software key functions which can be toggled with the left and right buttons.
• 25W Two-Way Hailer. When connected to an external hailer horn, you can talk to people on the deck or shore from the radio’s mi¬crophone and can hear people’s reply via the hailer speaker.
