ICOM M85UL | Both Land and Marine Frequencies

The Icom IC-M85UL two-way radio is the perfect radio for operations involving both land and sea.  The IC-M85 has both VHF land frequencies and all marine channels are built-in (USA, CAN, INT & WX).  You have instant access to marine channels 16 and 9 with the push of one button. 

In addition to VHF marine channels, the IC-M85 has 100 VHF land mobile channels (136–174 MHz). Also, each channel is programmable with CTCSS and DTCS tone so you can eliminate unwanted interference. 

The IC-M85 has 4 clearly labelled buttons on the front panel.  Even when wearing gloves the large buttons are easy to operate.  A large LCD with backlighting and backlit buttons make night operation easy. The large knobs and buttons are easy-to-operate, even while wearing gloves.

ICOM M85UL | Waterproof and Small

The IC-M85 two way radio is compact, at just about 2.2 inches by 3.6 inches, and lightweight (approximately 8.7oz with battery and antenna).  The IC-M85 is built tough to withstand hazardous and unhospitable environments at sea and on land. Even if the IC-M85 is dropped into water, complete waterproofing will protect it from harm (IP67 rating). The compact and durable body has been tested to the military specifications (MIL-STD). And Icom's popular AquaQuake™ prevents audio degradation from a water-logged speaker.

Despite its compact body, the IC-M85 delivers 700mW of loud audio. Clear communications is vital in noisy environments.

Radio Programming Options

The following does not apply to FRS, MURS, GMRS, LTE, Satellite, or IP radios.

Most business radios aren't ready to use out-of-the-box. So radio programming is needed to set the frequencies in the radio. For some radios the frequencies can be set through a menu interface. While other radios must be programmed using a PC, radio software, and a cable to connect the radios.

Here are your programming options:

  1. We can program your radios - with radio orders 
    • We provide basic radio programming for radios ordered through us. See the description below of basic radio programming.
    • Email us your Frequencies & Call Sign - the FCC requires dealers to verify your license before we program.
    • Please allow 1-2 days for first-time setup of radio programming.
    • Due to staffing limitations, we are not able to program radios purchased from other dealers.
  2. Match to your Previous Order
    • If you've ordered from us before we have your information stored.
  3. You can program the radio(s)
    • Connect Systems (all models): You can purchase software and cables from us. 
    • Kenwood ProTalk Business Radios (NX-P1300/NX-P1200 series, TK series, PKT)
      • Have pre-stored frequencies and you can easily program these radios through the radio's menu interface.
      • Custom frequencies will require dealer programming.
    • Icom (all models): Icom no longer allows dealers to sell software and cables over the internet. You may call us to discuss your options.
    • Motorola Business Radios (models beginning with CLP. CLS, RM, RD):
      • Have pre-stored business frequencies (Part 90). Software to program these radios is available on the Motorola website.
      • Just go to the product page on Motorola's website and you can download it for free. We can sell you the cable.
      • Custom frequencies will require dealer programming.
    • Motorola Commercial Radios (models beginning with CP, CM, MagOne):
      • Software to program these can be purchased directly from Motorola. We can sell you the cable.
    • Vertex Standard Radios:  You can purchase software and cables from us. (some cables have been discontinued)
  4. If you don't have a FCC license we can help you apply for one.
    • These licenses are for businesses, non-profit organizations, local and state government agencies.
    • We do all the work! Give us a call at 855-289-2929.
