In answer to your question - YES

The ICOM M801 seems to be very similar in spec to the M802 but with 125 watts PEP output compared to 150 watts on the M802 (you won't notice the difference).

Both e & GMDSS variants of M801 have the same level of connectivity as the M802 with regard to Pactor hook-up, so using it with Airmail software & Pactor modem won't be a problem.

Depending which Pactor modem you buy you will also be able to configure remote frequency control, either through the modem itself (PTC-II usb & pro) or via separate COM port direct from PC/laptop to radio.

Hi Sherif,
I also installed an Icom801 /PactorIIusb/sailmail and so far this work fine after fixing a wrong wiring diagram I got from Icom for the control part.

I asked to the dealer to unlock it for the ham band but unfortunetely he did only for Rx. Any suggestion to unlock the Tx??



Cheers
