Perhaps the first thing boaters will notice about the CM3 is its size. The plug and play second station option is notably larger than its predecessor, and offers a fantastic ‘form factor”. That is, the CM3 feels great to hold. The LCD display is large and bright, and offers 168 full dot-matrix characters, making DSC position sharing easy to see.
The COMMANDMICIII is a remote control for the IC-M504 that may be positioned up to 18.3m (60ft) away from the IC-M504. All M504 functions, including distress call, DSC, and foghorn, are available. The CM3 may also be used as an intercom with the IC-M504.
