Compact and with a robust modern construction, the IC-M85E contains critical commercial features including built-in voice scrambler ensuring private conversation and emergency features including Man down and lone worker function.

In addition to VHF marine channels, the IC-M85E covers 136–174 MHz PMR channels. Up to 100 programmable channels are available for PMR use. Each channel is programmable with CTCSS and DTCS tone.

The IC-M85E has three emergency related functions: Selectable MOB Alarm (when used with other IC-M85 radios), Man Down and Lone Worker functions. If one of these functions are activated, the radio automatically makes an emergency alarm.

The radio has a built-in Voice Scrambler and provide private communication between stations (32-code, compatible with UT-112 voice scrambler unit).

Despite its compact body, the IC-M85E delivers 700 mW of loud audio. Clear communications is vital in noisy environments.
