Why Buy From Fondriest?


 The M400BB comprises only a black box main body and a supplied COMMANDMIC HM195 remote control microphone accessory. The two-piece radio set can easily be installed behind a wall or console-leaving a small or hidden footprint-and completely controlled from a remote position.

Although compact in size, the M400BB possesses the same robust functionality found in Icom's M424 VHF fixed mount. Features include Class D DSC and the COMMANDMIC intuitive soft-key interface design. Active noise cancelling, a 10W loudspeaker and public address (PA) are built in for optimal audio performance. The M400MB is compatible with Icom's MA-500TR AIS transponder for additional safety at sea.

Space-Saving, 2-Piece Configuration
The IC-M400BB consists of a two-piece, black box configuration. All function control including DSC operation, can be made from the COMMANDMIC™, HM-195SW, and the RF unit, IC-M400BB, can be installed in an out-of-sight place.

Intuitive User Interface
The menu system is shared with Icom's latest models. The bottom line of the dot-matrix display shows the software key functions which can be toggled with the left and right buttons.

Active Noise Cancelling
The built-in bidirectional active noise cancelling reduces background noise to up to 90% and improves both your transmitted voice and incoming call. Hear and be heard more clearly.

10W Loud Audio, Public Addres & Foghorn
Built-in 10W amplifier that increases the audio output from an additional external speaker. The public address function allows you to make an announcement from the microphone like a loud speaker, and the foghorn can also be emitted from the external speaker.

Built-in Class D DSC
The built-in DSC watch function monitors Ch.70 (DSC channel) actively, even while you are receiving another channel. DSC functions include: distress, individual, group, all ships, urgency, safety, position request/report, polling request and DSC test calls.

Common NMEA Interface
When connected to an external GPS receiver, current position and time are shown on the Commandmic display. When receiving DSC information from another vessel, the radio can transfer it to a navigational device via NMEA 0183 connectivity.

AIS Target Call With MA-500TR
When connected to the optional MA-500TR Class B AIS transponder, the AIS
target call function allows you to set up an individual DSC call from the MA-500TR.

Additional Features:

  • Dual/tri-watch function for monitoring Ch.16 and/or call channel
  • Priority and normal scan
  • Flexible installation
  • Small foot print with 2-piece station
  • Perfect for compact boats

Comes with

  • Commandmic (HM195SW)

ROV Yogi Gets Underway In Yellowstone Lake

Earlier this year, we covered a work in progress to build a new remotely operated vehicle (ROV) for Yellowstone Lake . It was just an idea back then, but the exploratory craft has since become a reality thanks to some determined researchers and a Kickstarter campaign that reached a goal of $100,000 in funding. Full cost for building the vessel was around $500,000, but crowdfunding a portion of it allowed officials at the Global Foundation for Ocean Exploration (GFOE), a nonprofit engineering group, to spur public interest. In a similar vein, they named the completed ROV “Yogi” in honor of the famous fictional comic book character devised by Hanna-Barbera who gets into trouble at Yellowstone National Park.

Elliott Bay Reconstruction Benefits From Chum Salmon Finds

Like many commercial waterfronts, Seattle’s Elliott Bay has been built to withstand the natural forces of erosion. This has come with the addition of structures like concrete seawalls and piles of riprap, most of which were put in place in the 1930s. But there are a few manmade beaches that have sprung up in recent years along its banks. Some of these have come about because the city is reworking the shoreline following an earthquake that occurred around 10 years ago. And moving forward, Bay planners are looking to add still more improvements, including complexities in seawalls, underwater benches in the intertidal zone and a new beach, all of which are meant to help support fish habitat.

Boise River Watershed Watch Shows Volunteers River Issues

Having just wrapped up its ninth year, the Boise River Watershed Watch program is an increasingly popular citizen science program in Boise, Idaho. It takes interested volunteers and joins them with expert scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) who teach them about the river’s health and sampling water quality using transparency tubes, dip nets and chemical test kits. “Our focus is to educate folks on the parameters that we measure, to give them an idea of the river’s health,” said Tim Merrick, public information officer at the USGS’ Idaho Water Science Center. “So they can collect data on the river’s conditions and get plugged in.
