More than a radio, the M605 is a system that works with as many as three remotes and the HM-195 series CommandMic. The 4.3-inch color LCD provides nearly 180 degrees of viewing in almost any lighting. An intuitive interface comes with high-resolution characters and icons, along with a directional keypad and soft keys. Features include active noise cancellation, last-call voice recording, an integrated GNSS receiver, Class D DSC, and weather and alert channels. $849 ($999 with AIS). Icom America, Kirkland, Washington, (800) 872-4266. icomamerica.com
