ICOM IC-M25 Floating Handheld Marine Radio Review

Icom IC-m25 VHF handheld radio
Icom IC-m25 VHF handheld radio

ICOM IC-M25 is the lightest and slimmest floating VHF handheld radio on the market. It weighs only 7.8 oz! That's pretty light considering that it still has a 1500 mAh battery which is enough to power this handheld marine radio for up to 11 hours. If you drop the radio in water, Float N Flash function will flash the red LED light on the back and the screen of the radio at the same time. It works even if the radio is off.

ICOM IC-M25 now includes a new charging cable - Micro USB type B (a type of connector used by many smartphones today). That potentially can eliminate a problem of having too many chargers and cables laying around. 

Overall, this is a decent radio for someone looking for a floating VHF radio but does not need more advanced features. You can find our top three handheld marine radios here.

Standard Horizon HX150 Review

Standard Horizon HX150 VHF marine radio
Standard Horizon HX150 VHF marine radio

Besides making some of the best feature packed handheld and fixed mount marine radios, Standard Horizon also designs and manufactures entry level/budget radios. HX150 is a great example of a compact handheld marine radio that provides good quality communications and decent battery life.

This would be a good VHF marine radio for kayak fishing or other activities where you don't want to carry too much weight and may not need GPS function (if you do, get the Standard Horizon HX870). This radio is floating and submersible (rated IPX7). Compact designs allows it to be stored in smaller compartments and pockets. The radio's power is variable, so if you want to preserve battery life, switch to 1W mode, and if you are further away and need a stronger reception - 5W mode is there for you.

Operating this radio is straight forward. It has a decent size LCD screen, 16/9 dedicated key, preset buttons, key lock etc. Overall, this is a great little radio. It is comparable to Uniden MHS75, but there are a few differences. Let's take a look at them:

Standard Horizon HX870 Floating 6W Handheld VHF with Internal GPS

Standard Horizon HX870 marine radio review
Standard Horizon HX870 marine radio review

If you  are looking for an efficient floating marine radio that includes a 66-channel WAAS GPS receiver and ability to transmit and receive distress calls? Look no further; the Standard Horizon HX870 VHF Marine Radio does this and much more. Built with its own powerful GPS/DSC receiver, buoyant die-cast chassis, and submersible waterproof construction, rest assured that you’ll effortlessly navigate the water like a true captain.

The Standard Horizon HX870 is the successor of the popular HX851 portable marine radio. Up until now, the HX870 remains one of the best handheld marine radios on the market today. The premium features tough construction waterproof design are just a couple of the reasons it is our favorite handheld radio.

The HX870 works with all US, international and Canadian marine radio channels and has a dedicated receiver for CH70 (DSC calling). During the set up, you are are able to choose your group setting - US, Canada or international. To activate distress function, hold DISTRESS key for 3 seconds. A special signal will be sent to all nearby vessels in a range of 5 miles. Make sure to register for MMSI number and set it up on your HX870 handheld radio. DSC signal with your coordinates will NOT work if you don't complete this step.


Design:

The VHF marine radio is one of the best models which include an easy to operate menu system perfect for non-tech savvy mariners and crewmen. The Standard Horizon HX870 comes with a 6 Watt VHF radio with a 2.3-inch screen size twice as large as its competitors. Focusing on intuitive and efficient design, its operating buttons are all positioned strategically near the screen for ease of use. It’s also waterproof and floats, a helpful feature should you drop it in the water.

Performance and Battery Power:

In event of any emergency or terrible weather condition, the Standard HX870 ensures that you can contact the coast guard or other boaters. It uses noise-canceling microphone technology that enables clear outgoing and incoming calls so you can send and receive clear messages without disrupting noises from your ship’s engine or the water.

With its built-in class DSC, you can simply push the distress button in order to send a message to the coast guard and other vessels nearby. It can save as many as 200 waypoints and 20 routes using its own compass page which shows COG, SOG, bearing, and distance to individual waypoints. With its unique and high tech compass page, you can see up to nine vessels in range!

When it comes battery power, the Standard Horizon HX870 comes with a long lasting 1800 mAh Li-Ion battery and a glow-in-the-dark gasket ideal for emergency use. The Standard HX870 also comes with a three-year warranty; many other radios only have a 1-year warranty.

Built in GPS:

The HX870 has the ability to receive weather alerts and has an assigned WX soft key to get current weather information. The biggest advantage of this portable VHF radio vs other VHR radios is built in 66 channel GPS receiver. The internal GPS antenna allows this radio to display your position either in a compass  or numerical style. You can log your GPS location at regular intervals using the LOGGER function. The HX870 also allows you to share your GPS position and request GPS positions from other vessels.

HX870 built in GPS receiver

Navigation: 

So what else makes this a top notch VHF radio? Built in navigation! You can store up to 200 waypoints on the HX870. Go to menu > NAVI> WAYPOINT and you will get access to your history, memory or manual entering of coordinates. The large display will show the compass with the coordinates of your final destination. This is extremely useful especially for smaller boats or kayaks where the space is limited and you want the radio to do it all.

In case of emergency:

If you ever end up overboard, the HX870 has a few things to help you in emergency situations. First of all, this is a floating radio that is IPX8 rated (30 minutes under 4.92ft of water). It also has water activated SOS strobe light. If the radio is dropped, it will turn on (even if it was powered off before) and start flashing an SOS light. 

MOB function (Man )ver-Board) will memorize the position information instantly if the radio is dropped into water.

submersible marine two way radio

The high capacity 1800 mAh Li-Ion battery with a 3 hour quick charge function will provide plenty of battery life for regular use. You can also use supplied alkaline battery tray that takes 5 AAA batteries.

Read about marine radios

Looking for a radio that is reliable, has a complete set of features and sold at a low price? Cobra’s MRHH350FLT VHF radio is an affordable, compact and lightweight handheld VHF marine radio perfect for people on a tight budget.

With its submersible tech (this radio is rated JIS7), it can survive being in one-meter deep waters for 30 minutes. It’s secured with a tough case that prevents internal and external damage if dropped overboard. 

If you’re planning to wear it on your body, Cobra  includes spring-loaded belt clip and there is an external speaker/microphone jack for lapel speaker/mic. Cobra makes CM 330-001 that can be used with this radio as well as other handheld radios (via a special adapter). 

Display

The device has a large and bright backlit LCD  screen that displays every critical piece of  information.  Your active channel is shown in 2 large digits, weather icon will display current weather condition, weather alert icon will tell you about critical weather alerts and there is also indicator of your signal level. It does not take long to get accustomed to the display and information on it, since everything is clearly labeled and it is not over-populated with information.

The output power is adjustable: 1, 3 and 6 Watts for short and long-range communication. If you are close to the shore or another vessel and don't need the full transmit power, just select the 1W output and conserve the battery energy.

Your further safety is increased with ALL NOAA weather channels with weather alerts. Cobra MRHh350 can monitor up to three channels and get instant access to channel 16 when emergency situations arise.

Integrated  noise-cancelling microphone works well blocking background noises, and there is also a built in BURP function. If the radio is dropped or gets wet, a speaker will vibrate to get the water our of the speaker grill.

It gives the user a flash and audible alarm once the battery is low so you can charge whenever you’re going to use it for longer hours. Cobra did a great job including a desktop charger (with AC adapter) as well as 12V DC accessory plug which gives you even more flexibility.
