Combined DSC/VHF Marine Transceiver
The IC-M411 is a compact, waterproof VHF/DSC radio that is ideal for small boats or where space is at a premium. This model features a large speaker grille, which gives excellent audio quality. The buttons and display have been designed to be easy to see in poor lighting conditions.
Superior receiver sensitivity and speaker audio
The IC-M411 has excellent receiver performance. The efficient speaker also reproduces a low frequency audio composition for clear and crisp audio.
Class D DSC built-in
The IC-M411 has a built-in Ch 70 (DSC channel) receiver, which monitors activity, even while you are receiving another channel. When in an emergency situation, an automated distress call can be sent with a touch of a button.
Digital selective calling features
DSC uses a unique ID (MMSI code), so you can make contact with the intended ID station or group directly, or with all ships in the area. A total of 100 address IDs can be programmed with 10-character address name and up to 20 received DSC messages are stored.
Position request and polling request
When connected to an external GPS receiver, the position request function allows you to exchange the ships position information. The polling (request/reply) function checks whether a specific ship is in the communication range.
IPX7 waterproof protection

AquaQuake draining function
AquaQuake draining function emits a vibrating sound and clears water away from the speaker grill.

The large LCD shows a full sized channel number and 10 character scrolling channel comment. The 4 levels of LCD backlight make the screen easy to see in all conditions.
9 clearly labelled buttons below the display are well spaced for optimum user friendly operation. The “Distress” button is covered with a spring loaded plastic cover to prevent accidental distress call activation.
