To meet changes in PMR446 channel allocation throughout Europe this year, Icom have updated versions of their best-selling professional IC-F29SR and IC-F29DR licence free walkie-talkie radios. The new versions, called the IC-F29SR2 (analogue version) and IC-F29DR2 (digital version) are virtually identical to their predecessors regarding features, ease of use and performance. Both models provide a great licence free solution for those businesses and organisations that want short range communications without the expense of mobile phones.
Ships certified as SOLAS vessels need to have radios that meet the strict international radio safety standards known as the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS). Merchant ships registered under the European Union must have radios that comply with the EU Marine Equipment Directive (MED) which can be identified with a “Wheel Mark”. GMDSS Class A VHF and MF/HF equipment are an important requirement for vessels, giving ship owners more communication options.
Introducing the GM800 MF/HF Transceiver with CLASS A DSC providing a complete GMDSS MF/HF communication system for Commercial SOLAS regulated vessels. The radio and all its components meet MED 96/98/EC, “wheel mark” requirements for European merchant ships.
