Icom IC-M35

Icom is pleased to launch the new IC-M35 buoyant VHF marine handheld transceiver. The IC-M35 is the latest in Icom’s line-up of rugged marine handhelds and comes with a great new feature that all boat users will love – Clear Voice Boost!

So what is Clear Voice Boost? Imagine a radio that’s smart enough to adjust its own volume level to account for the surrounding noise level. The IC-M35 does just that, it measures the ambient sound pressure level so that you will not miss communications during a sudden burst of noise. It’s very common to have an auto-adjusting volume level feature found on radios in today’s new cars, but the IC-M35 automatically adjusts the TRANSMIT level as well! Your conversation is sent and received as clearly as possible no matter how noisy the background is. For manual override, a ‘LOUD’ button can be activated with just one push, giving you immediate full volume level. In addition, the IC-M35 has a real noise-cancelling microphone built in as well.

The IC-M35 has also been designed to float in the water. Drop the IC-M35 over the side of your boat and it will rise to the surface. Because the IC-M35 is waterproof to IPX-7, it will keep on working after it has been submerged. For users who want ‘hands free use’ a new waterproof speaker microphone is available which when attached will still allow the IC-M35 to float.

The IC-M35 uses a lightweight Lithium-Ion battery giving a full 8 hours of use on a single charge. (Typical usage: 5% transmit/ 5% receive/ 90% standby.) Transmit power is 6 watts which is a full watt higher than other handheld marine VHF radios except Icom’s IC-M71. To extend operating time the power level can be reduced down to 1 watt when required.



  • Buoyant VHF Marine TransceiverThe IC-M35 is a buoyant marine handheld transceiver that comes with a great new feature that all boat users will love – Clear Audio Boost!
  • Clear voice boost (Clear Voice + Voice Boost) 
    In marine environments there are many sources of noise that can affect the quality of your communications, such as engine noise, roar of the waves etc. The IC-M35 automatically adjusts the outgoing voice and the incoming audio to compensate for the ambient noise level: whether you’re in a loud environment or in a quiet area, the IC-M35 ensures your radio conversation is sent and received as clearly as possible.
  • LOUD button
    When you need an instant boost in the volume, a simple push of the LOUD button gives you full volume immediately. In addition, holding the LOUD button mutes the audio output.
  • Noise cancelling microphone
    The sub-microphone on the rear panel inverts phase and cancels out ambient noise from the main microphone. As a result, the IC-M35 reduces the affect of background noise (particularly trebly noise) from the transmitted signal and makes it easier to catch voice communication.
  • Automatic volume adjustment
    In a high noise environment, the sub-microphone detects the ambient noise and the IC-M35 automatically increases the volume output to suit the surrounding environment.
    700mW audio output
    The IC-M35 employs a bridge-tied load (BTL) audio amplifier to increase the audio output power. The internal speaker delivers a loud 700mW (typical) audio output with clear sound even in noisy environments.
  • And yes, it floats too!
    Just like the IC-M33, the IC-M35 floats in the water. If the radio is dropped over the side, it will come to the surface so you can retrieve it. As the radio has a rugged, waterproof body, it will keep on working even after it has been submerged.* 1m depth for 30 minutes, equivalent to IPX7. Please note that the IC-M35 is not designed to be used under the water.
  • 6W RF output with low power consumption
    Although the IC-M35 delivers a high 6W RF output and 700mW audio output, its current saving circuit offers 8 hours* of operating time with the supplied 980mAh Lithium-Ion battery pack.* Typical operation with Tx (Hi): Rx: standby=5:5:90
  • Large buttons and slim dimensions
    The IC-M35 has large, easy-to-operate buttons that provides intuitive operation. A slender design body makes it extremely natural to handle.
  • Easy to see LCD with large channel indication
    The IC-M35 has an easy to see large LCD (32 x 16 mm) with a clear 2-digit channel number indication. The LCD is laid out on the top of the front panel not to be covered with your hand. LCD and key backlighting is standard for night time operation.
