Our cruising plans changed so we now have a brand new still in the box waterproof Icom
model: IC-M92D Class D DSC
. We paid $277 and we would like close to that price
- OBO. If interested please get in touch. Payment could be through Paypal, and we could split the shipping
cost - unless you want it shipped overnight!
I tried to upload pictures, but could not. I can send upon request.
I called Icom
American to find out why these units are no longer available for sale
in the USA. I was told by technical support they get several people calling each day with the same question and that they want to buy the units. I was told that due to a recent change in FCC regulations
that requires VHFs with DSC
to have full time DSC monitoring
, that Icom cannot sell these in the USA anymore. The technical support person told me they can certainly be used legally. It is my understanding that fitting a handheld in this way is prohibitive since it would make the unit too large, therefore Icom is unlikely to come out with an FCC compliant DSC handheld.
