    Default FM3000 VHF Radio

    Product Manufacturer: Furuno
    The FM-3000 Radiotelephone is a rugged, reliable 1 Watt and 25 Watt radio with built-in DSC functionality built to withstand the harshest conditions that may be encountered at sea. Its compact, waterproof case design allows a simplified installation on any steering console, helm or flybridge. Dedicated control buttons and a rapidly operated rotary channel selector offer easy access to all U.S. and international marine VHF channels. Instant Channel 16 access, up-to-date marine weather reports on 10 different channels and other advanced features are at your fingertips.

    With the optional FM-3010 Remote Second-Station Control Microphone, you can control all available functions of the FM-3000 VHF Radio (except DSC operation) from a remote location such as a deck or flybridge. The FM-3010 also has a one-touch Channel 16/9 Key and can double as a handy intercom system, allowing you to talk with the FM-3000 transceiver.

    Pros: Great range and easy to use functions - includes DSC capability for distress alert
    This is a great looking radio and it sounds even better. I added a 6' digital antenna and the range is very strong. I really like the built-in DSC capability for distress alert and registered and received my DSC call number. (See post on this site by Wellcraft Dave on DSC). I couldn't be happier with this VHF. It is very high quality and easy to use.

    As a side bar note on this radio, it's made for Furuno by Icom. It's the same model as the M-502 and the new M-504. Icom accessories and flush mount hardware can be used with this radio.

    Not doggin it or the name at all,, but it is a Icom made VHF for Furuno.
