Icom IC-M400BB Black Box Transceiver - Icom Quality. Small Footprint.

The IPX7 Icom IC-M400BB consists of a two-piece "black box" configuration. All function controls including DSC operation can be made from the supplied Black COMMANDMIC IV HM-195B. The IC-M400BB "black box" RF unit can be installed in an out-of-sight place, saving valuable space on the console or nav station.

The new menu system is shared with Icom's latest models. The bottom line of the dot-matrix display shows the software key functions which can be toggled with the left and right buttons. The built-in bidirectional active noise cancelling reduces background noise to up to 90% and improves both your transmitted voice and incoming call. Hear and be heard more clearly.

The Icom IC-M400BB has a built-in 10W amplifier that increases the audio output from an optional external PA speaker. The PA function allows you to make an announcement from the microphone like a loud speaker, and the foghorn function can also be emitted from the external speaker.

The built-in DSC watch function monitors Ch. 70 (DSC channel) activity, even while you are receiving another channel. DSC functions include: distress, individual, group, all ships, urgency, safety, position request/report, polling request and DSC test calls.

When connected to an external GPS receiver, current position and time are shown on the COMMANDMIC IV display. When receiving DSC information from another vessel, the radio can also transfer it to a navigational device via NMEA 0183 connectivity. When connected to an optional MA-500TR Class B AIS transponder, the AIS target call function allows you to set up an individual DSC call from the MA-500TR.
