Built-in Class D DSC
The IC-M421 has a built-in Ch 70 (DSC channel) receiver,
which monitors Ch 70 activity, even while you are receiving
another channel. In an emergency situation, an automated
distress call can be sent at the touch of a button.
Digital selective calling features
The DSC uses a unique ID (MMSI code) similar to a telephone
number. So you can make a contact with the intended ID
station or group directly or with all ships in the area.
When connected to an external GPS receiver, the position
request and position report functions allow you to exchange
the ship's position information. The polling (request/reply)
function checks whether a specific ship is in the
communication range. A total of 100 address IDs can be
programmed with 10-character address name and up to 40
received DSC messages (20 distress and 20 Other calls) are
Large LCD with Dot-matrix Characters
The IC-M421 has a full dot-matrix display with up to
168-character capability that allows you to see a host of

and DSC data etc. With the backlit display, large buttons
and knobs, the IC-M421 is easy to operate, even at night.
