What makes Icom's M88 so special? Functionality. Features. Unparalleled battery life and power. Submersible construction. Military ruggedness. Frequency control. Choice of optional features.

What is nonincendive equipment? Section 500.7(F) of the National Electrical Code explains that it is a protection technique for equipment used in Class I, Division 2, hazardous (classified) locations.

Intrinsically Safe vs. Nonincendive
  • A radio termed "intrinsically safe" is designed and certified to
    eliminate or encapsulate any components that produce sparks or which
    could generate enough heat to cause an ignition in areas with flammable
    gasses, dusts or fuels. Most of these radios are approved to sell in
    Division 1 & 2
  • Nonincendive radios are incapable of generating thermal or
    electrical energy sufficient to ignite a volatile atmosphere under normal
    operating conditions-although sufficient energy for ignition could be
    generated under fault conditions. These radios are only approved to sell
    in Division 2
  • Division 1 = hazardous locations such as inside a tank or container
    requires "intrinsically safe" equipment
  • Division 2 = hazardous locations such as outside of the shielded
    tank or container requires "nonincendive" equipment

Nonprofit kick-starts water data gathering in Nepal Valley

For the first time, citizens of the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal have free access to local water data. The data is the result of a water quality monitoring pilot project started by the California-based nonprofit SmartPhones4Water (S4W). SmartPhones4Water, an idea developed by Ph.D. student Jeff Davids and the late Dr. Peter-Jules van Overloop from Delft University of Technology (Netherlands), was started in California in 2014. The goal of the organization is to leverage smartphone technology to gather water data in countries where such data is scarce. The method is simple: a network of local citizens use their smartphones to capture and upload the data to an online server and database.

Algae Bloom Spawns New Water Monitoring Program In Utah Lake

The result of a harmful algae bloom in the summer of 2016, the enhanced Utah Lake water quality monitoring program reached its one year milestone in September. Located near the Provo and Orem metropolitan areas, the lake is Utah’s largest freshwater body and a popular water recreation and fishing spot. In the summer of 2016, recreation users reported an unusual amount of scum on the surface of the water. Utah Lake is monitored by the Utah Division of Water Quality (UDWQ). Prior to the 2016 harmful algae bloom (HAB), the UDWQ successfully used regular water sample testing and citizen reporting to stay on top of any incidents.
