Icom has introduced its new GM800 MF/HF Transceiver which provides a complete GMDSS MF/HF communication system for commercial SOLAS regulated vessels.

The Class A DSC radio and all its components meet MED 96/98/EC wheel mark requirements for European merchant ships.

“The GM800 is a feature-rich, yet user-friendly transceiver. Together with the matching GM600, the GM800 provides a complete GMDSS VHF, MF and HF radio station for vessels that require wheel marked SOLAS equipment,” said Ian Lockyer, marketing manager of Icom UK Ltd.

Easy to use

The GM800 MF/HF Transceiver provides operators with reliable, easy to use and high-performance communications.

It has been designed to be fitted on any commercial bridge and blend in with other instrumentation and displays.

The controller can be interfaced with other equipment including GPS, PC or e-mail modems to make a complete communication system.

Its 4.3in colour TFT LCD provides almost 180° wide viewing angle and displays high-resolution characters and function icons. Even when the radio is installed in the instrument panel, the operator can clearly recognise the display information from various viewing angles. While, the night mode display ensures good readability in low light conditions.
