Top brand loyalty, no doubt from very effective personal marketing, can the icoms take external mikes?

If you are asking about the HH Euro M1 (top product BTW) why would you want an external mike?

The Icom M1 Euro can take a speaker mike, i dont think any other handheld radios on the market do, except for the entel ht640. The only issue with the M1 euro is the cost (mailspeed marine price is 279 for the VHF + circa 80 for the mic) compared to the entel, which also has a lithium battery, and with speaker mic costs about 200 from belmont comms

Cheers

Matt

Brian,

I think the Simrad H51 can take external devices but at a price, the reason for going for a mike was so the cox could keep the radio on them away from the front of their bodies (gets broken hauling divers in by the bootstraps etc) and still be able to transmit and recieve on the relevant channel.

Waterproof with Mic

If you require a robust waterproof handheld with speakermic and shoulderholster to keep the unit out of harms way then the Icom M1 EuroV is the only real option - with the Entel a poor but cheaper 2nd bet.

In the Aux CG we get issued with the Icom M1 Euro V with speaker/Mike and ear piece. These radios do take a bashing on some cliff jobs and are always reliable. Battery power last for ages.
Its nice as well to put the radio in your pocket and just have the speaker/mike clipped on your lapel/collar.

Send a message via MSN to Jon Brooks
M1v and Spk/Mic

If you want a speaker mic wait till Southampton Boat Show
We intend to give them away free with the M1v as a show offer
