Connecting radios all over the world

Icom Marine radios IC-M423, IC-M424,

IC-M400BB and the IC-M506

We have a ready made kit that connects any of the above Icom radios to a Mimer Network Interface. This gives remote capability of audio and PTT as well as channel change and more.

As with all other SoftRadio you can operate several radios from one dispatcher and each radio can be operated from several dispatchers. Each dispatcher can also use other types of radios in a mix.

Through separate keys you can set the squelch level, high/low power, Dual watch on/off and there is also a quick key to CH16.

The radios built in functions for DSC can not be used. For those who need DSC there is an option for Mimer SoftRadio called Marine Calls.

All connections are made from the radios rear connector otherwise used for the Commandmic HM-195 (HM-195B/SW, HM-195GB/GW). The radio can simultaneusly be local controlled as a standard radio with its control head, microphone and speaker.

NetworkInterface M506: 3009/46
Network Interface M423/424 & M400BB: 3009/31
Cable Kit: 3126


The Icom radio IC-M400BB, that is a Black Box radio unit normally operated through the Command Microphone, can also be used. You will get the same functionality but no local control.

Examples of use:

  • Local use when several dispatchers want to share one radio
  • Remote use where a dispatcher at one location want to talk to radio users at a different location
  • CrossPatch between Marine radio channels and other two way radios, like analogue, IDAS, DMR, Tetra or MPT
