IC-M801 MF/HF Marine SSB Transceiver


MF/HF Marine SSB Transceiver

The new IC-M801 is based on the NMEA award winning transceiver, and will be available in two versions. The IC-M801E with Class E DSC operation will be available for non-SOLAS vessels. The IC-M801GMDSS for Class A DSC operation meets both GMDSS and MED 96/98/EC, “wheel mark” requirements for SOLAS regulated vessels.

Built in DSC, Class A or Class E
The IC-M801GMDSS has Class A DSC operation and will meet GMDSS requirements and MED 96/98/EC, “wheel mark” requirements for SOLAS regulated vessels. The IC-M801E will meet Class E standards for non-SOLAS vessels.

Industry standard 110mm x 220mm size remote controller
The IC-M801E/GMDSS features a remote head measuring only 220mm wide, 110mm high and 84.4mm deep. The 'black box' main body of the transceiver mounts out of the way and out of sight. 12-volt or 24-volt wires hook up directly to the transceiver black box. The same black box also hooks into a GPS, laptop computer, and e-mail modem. There's an accessory socket for an external speaker mountable independently of the remote head. There are automatic antenna tuner connections for the remote Icom automatic antenna coupler.

Large backlit, dot-matrix LCD display with 10 selectable lighting levels
The IC-M801E/GMDSS’ front panel sports a full keypad, allowing direct frequency entry. The large dot-matrix display offers 10 levels of backlighting and is easy to see, day or night. Large dials and buttons allow for easy operation in rough seas. Icom have included a headphone socket on the front panel, allowing the operator to operate the radio without disturbing others.

Digital signal processing
The DSP controlled digital IF filter provides flexible filter settings for narrow band signals like SITOR and FSK without having to install an optional narrow filter.

12V or 24V power supply available
The IC-M801E/GMDSS has a built in DC-DC power converter, which provides 1.6V DC either from 12V DC or 24V DC depending on version.

Automatic antenna tuner, AT-141
An optional automatic tuner, AT-141 easily connects to the IC-M801E/GMDSS. If the tuner cannot tune the antenna, the IC-M801E/GMDSS bypasses the tuner and displays an alert on the display.

125W (PEP) of output power
A stable 125W of output power can provide reliable long distance communication. The large cooling fan ensures stable internal temperature even during high duty operation.
