Floating Handheld VHF Radio - 6W

Clear voice + voice boost
In marine environments there are many sources of noise that can affect the quality of your communications, such as engine noise, breaking surf and more. The IC-M36 automatically adjusts the outgoing voice and the incoming audio to compensate for the ambient noise level: whether you're in a loud environment or in a quiet area, the IC-M36 ensures your radio conversation is sent and received as clearly as possible.

And YES, It FLOATS
Continuing the legacy of the IC-M34, the fully submersible IC-M36 floats back up to the surface if dropped overboard, even if the optional speaker microphone, HM-165, is attached.

AquaQuake draining function
The vibrating "buzz" sound clears water away from the speaker grill.

LOUD button
When you need an instant "boost" in the volume, a simple push of the "LOUD" button gives you full volume immediately. In addition, holding the "LOUD" button mutes the audio output.

Noise cancelling microphone
The sub-microphone on the rear panel inverts phase and cancels out ambient noise from the main microphone. As a result, the IC-M36 reduces the affect of background noise (particularly trebly noise) from the transmitted signal and makes it easier to catch voice communication.

Automatic volume adjustment
When in an engine room or high noise environment, the sub-microphone detects the ambient noise and the IC-M36 automatically increases the volume output to suit the surrounding environment.

Low power consumption
Although the IC-M36 delivers a high 6W RF output and 700mW audio output, its current saving circuit offers a practical 8 hours1 of operating time with the supplied 980mAh Lithium-Ion battery pack.1Typical operation with Tx (Hi): Rx: standby=5:5:90

Large buttons and slim dimensions
Thanks to the large, easy-to-operate buttons, the IC-M36 provides intuitive operation. A pinched-waist slender body makes it easy to hold and carry the radio, and is surprisingly compact for a floating radio.

Army Corps of Engineers Protects River Wildlife

A complex series of locks and dams up and down the Ohio River enable interstate commerce, travel and recreation by maintaining a usable pathway for watercraft, but come with the inevitable byproducts of disrupting the river’s natural systems. To combat this, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers uses a complex monitoring and response technology designed to minimize the negative impacts of dredging on the river ecosystem. Steven Foster, a limnologist with the Corps Water Quality Team, works at the Robert C. Byrd Lock and Dam in Gallipolis Ferry, West Virginia. He said one key area he focuses on is the welfare of mussels in the river. River dredging can smother mussel beds, so Foster and the team of engineers monitor the beds to ensure their safety.

Researchers Track Glacial Meltwater On Its Surprising Journey

While the scientific community has formed its consensus on how ice sheets are shrinking in and around Greenland, some researchers are tracking what happens to the meltwater as it drains into the ocean each summer. Their study, published in Nature Geoscience by an interdisciplinary team of biologists, oceanographers and hydrologists, used computer models to simulate the meltwater to see where currents take it and what effect it could have on the ocean. Renato Castelao, one of the researchers and an associate professor of marine science for the University of Georgia, said one of the biggest discoveries of the study was the surprising final destinations of the ice sheets as they melt into the ocean each summer.

Ice Fishing With A SondeCAM Underwater Fishing Camera

Thinking of hitting the ice with a SondeCAM underwater fishing camera? Due to its rugged design, you won't have to worry about it handling the harsh elements. However there are a few simple tricks to get the most out of a FishSens SondeCAM while ice fishing. You won't have to do anything to modify the SondeCAM itself, but you are going to have to bring a few extra things. Most importantly we are going to need a power source. Unless you are hauling your gear with a truck, you'll want something more portable than the battery you used in the boat. Pick up an inexpensive and maintenance-free 12-volt, 9-amp battery. It is going to provide plenty of power, but will be much lighter and take up less space.
