DEFINITION
LLWARNING
Personal injury, fire hazard or electric
shock may occur.
This
instruction manual contains important safety and operating instructions fro the IC-M710.
CAUTION
NOTE: To meet the European GMDSS regulations
(ETS300 338, ETS300 373), the following must be
connected to the IC-M710GMDSS version:
• GM-110 DSC TERMINAL UNIT
• PS-65 (or 66) DC-DC CONVERTER UNIT
• AT-1 30E AUTOMATIC ANTENNA TUNER
NOTE
Equipment damage may occur.
If disregarded, inconvenience only. No
risk of personal injury, fire or electric
shock.
NOTE: The IC-M710 GMDSS version has a high-stability crystal oscillator unit. This unit draws a slight current even when power to the transceiver is OFF. To
prevent battery exhaustion when docking your vessel
for extended periods, unplug the DC cable from the DC
power receptacle.
PRECAUTIONS
Zi,\ WARNING! NEVER
connect the transceiver
to an AC outlet directly. This may pose a fire hazard
or result in an electric shock.
A\ WARNING! NEVER
mount the transceiver
overhead. The weight of the transceiver is approximately 8 kg, but its apparent weight will increase
several fold due to wave shocks or vibration. The
transceiver must be mounted on a flat hard surface
only.
NEVER connect a power source of more than 16 V
DC such as a 24 V battery. This connection will ruin
the transceiver.
NEVER place the transceiver where normal operation of the ship or vehicle may be hindered or where it
could cause bodily injury.
NEVER allow children to touch the transceiver.
NEVER expose the transceiver to rain, snow or any
liquids.
DO NOT use chemical agents such as benzene or
alcohol when cleaning, as they can damage the
transceiver surfaces.
In maritime mobile operation, KEEP the transceiver
and microphone as far away as possible (at least 1
m) from the magnetic navigation compass to prevent
erroneous indications.
USE an Icom microphone and/or handset only
(supplied or optional). Other brands may have different pin assignments and may damage the transceiver.
AVOID using or placing the transceiver in areas with
temperatures below -20 °C (-4 °F) or above +60 °C
(+140 ° F ).
AVOID connecting the transceiver to a power source
using reverse polarity. This connection will not only
blow fuses but may also damage the transceiver.
AVOID placing the transceiver in excessively dusty
environments or in direct sunlight.
There are two types of grounding systems available
for the IC-M710 — Negative Ground and Floating
Ground — NEVER install the negative ground type
to a plus-grounding ship. Such a connection might
blow fuses and is not usable.
AVOID placing the transceiver against walls or putting anything on top of the transceiver. This will
obstruct heat dissipation.
IN CASE OF EMERGENCY (for maritime operation)
If your vessel requires assistance, contact other
vessels and the Coast Guard by sending a distress
call on 2182 kHz.
Or, transmit your distress call using digital selective
calling on 2187.5 kHz

from the received frequency.
• Push and hold the [TX FREQ] switch to monitor
the transmit frequency.
- The display shows the transmit frequency simultaneously.
In such a case, the transmit frequency should be
monitored before transmitting to prevent interference
to other stations.
0 Transmit power selection
The transceiver has 3 selectable output powers.*
High power allows longer distance communications
and low power reduces power consumption.
*Only 2 selectable output powers are available with some
versions. In this case, level 1 stands for 60 W (the same as
level 2).
NOTE: Low power setting affects all channels except the 2182 kHz emergency channel.

When you need to receive weak signals, the squelch

"SQL" appears when the squelch is ON (noise is muted).
<>Noise blanker
The noise blanker function reduces pulse type noise
such as that coming from engine ignitions.
• Push [NB] to turn the noise blanker function ON
and OFF.
The noise blanker may distort reception of strong
signals. In such cases, the noise blanker should be
turned OFF.
0 AGC off function
The receiver gain is automatically adjusted according to received signal strength with the AGC (Automatic Gain Control) function to prevent distortion
from strong signals and to obtain a constant output
level.
When receiving weak signals with adjacent strong
signals or noise, the AGC function may reduce the
sensitivity. In this situation, the AGC function
should be deactivated.
RF gain setting
The receiver gain can be reduced with the RF gain
setting. This may help to remove undesired weak
signals while monitoring strong signals.
Usually, the AGC function reduces the RF gain
according to the receive signal strength and these
weak signals are removed. However, during periods
of no signals, these weak signals may not be heard.
In such cases, the RF gain may be useful for setting
a minimum level at which to hear signals.

CONNECTIONS AND INSTALLATION
n Ground connection
The transceiver and antenna tuner MUST have an
adequate ground connection. Otherwise, the overall
efficiency of the transceiver and antenna tuner installation will be reduced. Electrolysis, electrical
shocks and interference from other equipment could
also occur.
For best results, use the heaviest gauge wire or
strap available and make the connection as short as
possible. Ground the transceiver and antenna tuner
to one ground point, otherwise voltage differences
between 2 ground points may cause electrolysis.
CAUTION: The IC-M710 has either a negative
ground or floating ground depending on version.
NEVER connect the negative ground type to a
"plus-grounding ship" otherwise the transceiver
will not function.
• Ground system example
• Good ground points
- Ship's ground terminal
- External ground plate
- External copper screen
• Acceptable ground points
- Stainless steel tuna tower
- Stainless steel stanchion
- Through mast
- Through hull
- Metal water tank
• Undesirable ground points
(these points may cause noise or electrolysis)
- Engine block
- Keel bolt
• Unusable points
(these connection may cause an explosion or
electrical shock)
- Gas or electrical pipe
- Fuel tank
- Oil-catch pan

n Power source
The transceiver requires regulated DC power of 13.6
V and at least 30 A. There are 3 ways to supply
power:
- Direct connection to a 12 V battery in your ship
through the supplied DC power cable.
- Use the PS-60 DC POWER SUPPLY to connect to
an AC outlet.
- Use the PS-66 DC - DC CONVERTER to connect to a
19-32 V DC power source.
CAUTION: The supplied DC power cable
MUST be used to provide power to the transceiver. AVOID exceeding the 3 m (10 ft.) length
of the DC power cable. If it is necessary to make
a run of over 3 m, use #6 or similar cable instead
of the supplied DC power cable for a maximum
run of 6 m (20 ft.)

n Antenna
With a 50 Q matched antenna all marine bands cannot be used. The following antenna matcher or
antenna tuner may be helpful for antenna installation.
Most stations operate with a whip or long wire (insulated backstay) antenna. However, these antennas
cannot be connected directly to the transceiver since
their impedance may not be matched with the transceiver antenna connector.

CONNECTIONS AND INSTALLATION
n Mounting
th WARNING:
NEVER mount the transceiver overhead. The weight of the transceiver is
approximately 8 kg, but its apparent weight will
increase several fold due to wave shocks or vibration. The transceiver must be mounted on a flat,
hard surface.
<> Mounting location
Select a location that provides easy access to the
front panel for navigation safety, has good ventilation and is not subject to sea spray. The face of
the transceiver should be at 90 degrees to your line
of sight when operating it.
CAUTION: KEEP the transceiver and microphone at
least 1 meter away from your vessels's magnetic
navigation compass.
Check the installation angle; the display may not be
easy-to-read at some angle.
