Tough, water resistant construction
The IC-M87 is built tough to withstand hazardous and unhospitable environments at sea and on land. Even if the IC-M87 is dropped into water, complete water resistance will protect it from harm. The compact and durable body also meets military specifications (MIL-STD).
Equivalent to JIS Grade 7 or IPX7 of the corresponding International Standard I EC 529 (1989). (1m depth for 30 minutes)
6 clearly labelled buttons on the front panel and the volume/power knob maximize simplicity of operation. Even when wearing gloves, the large buttons are easy to operate. A large, clear LCD with backlighting and backlit buttons make night time operation simple.
Li-Ion battery for extra long battery life
With the standard 1700mAh Li-Ion battery pack, BP-227, you can get up to 15 hours of operating time without worrying about ‘memory effect’ of the battery. An optional AA alkaline battery case, BP-226, provides a convenient back up and great reassurance in an emergency.
– Typical operation; Tx:Rx:Stand-by duty ratio = 5:5:90
Water resistant speaker-microphone, HM-138
An optional water resistant speaker-microphone, HM-138, provides reliable operation, allowing you to wear the IC-M87 on your belt for added portable convenience.
Powerful 5 Watts output power
The 5 Watts of output power ensures the reliability of your communication, even over long distances with the standard battery pack. To save on battery consumption, you can reduce the output power to 3 Watts or 1 Watt.
22 programmable channels for PMR use
The IC-M87 has 22 free channels reserved for PMR use (146-174MHz). Wide/ narrow channel spacing is programmable for each channel, and CTCSS and DTCS signaling is built-in. Appropriate license will be required.
Desktop charger supplied
The BC-152 desktop charger is a simple drop-in charger. Set the charger on a table or mount it to a wall.
