  • Icom M506 Rear Mount VHF Radio with AIS and NMEA 2000

25W Rear Mount VHF with AIS and DSC

Waterproof Sunlight Viewable

The combination AIS/VHF Radio, the M506 AIS Rear Mic produced by Icom puts their quality VHF Radio technology together with an integrated AIS receiver in an easy to install and use standalone unit.

The M506 AIS Rear Mic VHF brings the ease of NMEA 2000 connectivity to your existing onboard network or you can connect to your plotter using the older NMEA 0183 connection. The AIS portion of the M506 AIS rear Mic VHS Radio displays on the radio screen the vessels in your area, their course, speed and identifies them through their MMSI number. If you have used either NMEA 2000 or NMEA 0183 to connect to your plotter this information is displayed on this screen which generally is much larger and easier to view.

The M506 comes with a newer feature, which records the last two minutes of the last call or you can start recording manually, this feature would come in handy if you missed something during the conversation. Icom’s M506 AIS Rear Mic VHF can be connected to an external hailer horn to speak to people on deck or shore and you can hear their reply via the hailer horn. Active Noise Cancellation, a feature of Icom’s VHF radios is also incorporated in the M506 AIS VHF Radio, this bidirectional noise cancelling reduces background noise up to 90% and greatly improves both incoming and outgoing calls. Don’t worry about getting this radio wet because it meets an even stricter waterproof rating of IPX8 which means the M506 will withstand being under 1 meter of water for one hour. You can mount the M506 AIS Rear Mic VHF with either the included external mounting bracket or the optional MB-75 flush mount kit.

If you are looking to purchase a VHF radio, from a recognized leader in VHF technology, and thought about adding AIS for safety on the water, the M506 AIS Rear Mic VHF Radio made by Icom is definitely an option you should consider.
