Icom

I have been looking at two Icom handhelds, the ic-m21, and the ic-m31. Apart from price and key layout, I cant seem to see any difference. Same weight same size, same functions?
I would be glad to hear any thoughts on this subject.
Thanks, Nick.

Icom!!!

Well not sure if I am up to answering your questions but will do me very best.

The main diffs are

Smaller screen on M31
No rotory On/Off on M31
Button lay out better on M31 (IMHO)

oh yeah and price M31 has a lower price

Big thing, only radios in there class that stay waterproof when AA case is fitted.
Important in an open boat

3 year warranty.
If they let in water in the first 3 years and you have not neglected it we will replace or repair it FOC (dependent on water damage).

Some on here will vouch for that

IMHO the M31 actually feels nicer in the hand, but thats a personal thing I guess.

Hope that all helps

Best regards

good question one I do not have the answer to.
but the guys in service can tell if its abuse or the unit at fault.

Each return would be assessed case by case.

So can't give you hard and fast what does and what don't
Sorry if vauge


Regards

Thanks Jon, I was hoping you might have an answer for me.
By the way, The american website wasnt much use, and the UK one was a bugger to find, I kept getting directed to the "International Council of Museums". They have a lot of links.
Thanks, Nick.

Hi all, I can certainly vouce for what jon says. My M21 flooded after 15 month. No problems ICOM replaced it. It took some time as they were out of stock (popular radio) 3** (Gold) for ICOM.

Regards

Brian
