PRECAUTION
RWARNING! NEVER connect the transceiver to an
AC outlet. This may pose a fire hazard or result in an electric
shock.
RWARNING! NEVER hold the transceiver so that the
antenna is closer than 2.5 cm from exposed parts of the body,
especially the face or eyes, while transmitting. The transceiver will perform best if the microphone is 5 to 10 cm away
from the lips and the transceiver is vertical.
NEVER
connect the transceiver to a power source other
than the BP-245. Such a connection will ruin the transceiver.
MAKE SURE
the flexible antenna and battery pack are
securely attached to the transceiver, and that the antenna and
battery pack are dry before attachment. Exposing the inside
of the transceiver to water will result in serious damage to the
transceiver.
BE CAREFUL! The IC-M71 employs submersible construction (1.5 m depth for 30 min.). However, once the transceiver has been dropped, waterproofing cannot be
guaranteed due to the fact that the transceiver may be
cracked, or the waterproof seal damaged, etc.
AVOID using or placing the transceiver in direct sunlight or
in areas with temperatures below –15°C or above +55°C.
KEEP the transceiver out of the reach of children.
KEEP the transceiver at least 0.9 meters away from your
vessel’s magnetic navigation compass.

OPERATING RULES
D Priorities
• Read all rules and regulations pertaining to priorities and
keep an up-to-date copy handy. Safety and distress calls
take priority over all others.
• You must monitor Channel 16 when you are not operating
on another channel.
1
(2) OPERATOR’S LICENSE
A restricted Radiotelephone Operator Permit is the license
most often held by small vessel radio operators when a radio
is not required for safety purposes.
1
The Restricted Radiotelephone Operator Permit must be
posted near the transceiver or be kept with the operator. Only
a licensed radio operator may operate a transceiver.
• False or fraudulent distress calls are prohibited under law.
D Privacy
• Information overheard but not intended for you cannot lawfully be used in any way.
• Indecent or profane language is prohibited.
D Radio licenses
However, non-licensed individuals may talk over a transceiver
if a licensed operator starts, supervises, ends the call and
makes the necessary log entries.
A current copy of the applicable government rules and regulations is only required to be on hand for vessels in which a
radio telephone is compulsory. However, even if you are not
required to have these on hand it is your responsibility to be
thoroughly acquainted with all pertinent rules and regulations.
(1) SHIP STATION LICENSE
When your craft is equipped with a VHF FM transceiver, you
must have a current radio station license before using the
transceiver. It is unlawful to operate a ship station which is not
licensed.
Inquire through your dealer or the appropriate government
agency for a Ship-Radiotelephone license. This license includes the call sign which is your craft’s identification for radio
purposes.

SCAN OPERATION (except Dutch versions)
■ Scan types
Scanning is an efficient way to quickly locate signals over a
wide frequency range. The transceiver has a priority scan setting and normal scan setting.
Set the TAG channels (scanned channel) before scanning.
Clear those TAG channels which are not needed or inconveniently stop scanning, such as digital communications.
In addition, the “Auto scan” function is also available for scanning. This function can be activated simultaneously, depending on the settings on the SET mode. (p. 18)
Choose priority or normal scan on the SET mode. (p. 18)

Priority scan searches through all TAG channels in sequence
while monitoring Channel 16. When a signal is detected on
Channel 16, scan pauses until the signal disappears; when a
signal is detected on a channel other than Channel 16, scan
becomes dualwatch until the signal disappears.

■ Battery cautions
Misuse of Lithium-ion batteries may result in the following hazards: smoke, fire, or battery rupture.
Misuse can also cause other battery damage or degradation of battery performance.
• R DANGER! DO NOT expose the battery to rain, snow,
seawater, or any other liquids. Do not charge or use a wet
battery. If the battery gets wet, be sure to wipe it dry before
using. The battery by itself is not waterproof.
• R DANGER! Use and charge only specified Icom battery
pack with Icom transceiver. Only Icom battery pack is tested
and approved for use with Icom transceiver. Using thirdparty or counterfeit battery packs may cause smoke, fire, or
cause the battery to burst.
• R DANGER! NEVER solder the battery terminals, or
NEVER modify the battery pack. This may cause heat generation, and the battery may rupture, emit smoke or catch
fire.
D Battery caution
• R DANGER! DO NOT hammer or otherwise impact the battery. Do not use the battery if it has been severely impacted
or dropped, or if the battery has been subjected to heavy
pressure. Battery damage may not be visible on the outside
of the case. Even if the surface of the battery does not show
cracks or any other damage, the cells inside the battery may
rupture or catch fire.
• R DANGER! NEVER use or leave battery pack in areas
with temperatures above +60˚C. High temperature buildup
in the battery, such as could occur near fires or stoves, inside a sun-heated car, or by setting the battery in direct sunlight may cause the battery to rupture or catch fire.
Excessive temperatures may also degrade battery performance or shorten battery life.
• R DANGER! NEVER incinerate a used battery pack since
internal battery gas may cause a rupture or explosion.
7
8
• R DANGER! Use the battery only with the transceiver for
which it is specified. Never use a battery with any other
equipment, or for any purpose that is not specified in this instruction manual.
• R DANGER! If fluid from inside the battery gets in your
eyes, blindness can result. Rinse your eyes with clean
water, without rubbing them, and see a doctor immediately.
• WARNING! Immediately stop using the battery if it emits an
abnormal odor, heats up, or is discolored or deformed. If any
of these conditions occur, contact your Icom dealer or distributor.
• WARNING! Immediately wash, using clean water, any part
of the body that comes into contact with fluid from inside the
battery.

BATTERY CHARGING
• WARNING! NEVER put the battery in a microwave oven,
high-pressure container, or in an induction heating cooker.
This could cause overheating, a fire, or cause the battery to
rupture.
• CAUTION! Always use the battery within the specified temperature range for the transceiver (–15˚C to +55˚C) and the
battery itself (–20˚C to +60˚C). Using the battery out of its
specified temperature range will reduce the battery’s performance and battery life. Please note that the specified temperature range of the battery may exceed that of the
transceiver. In such cases, the transceiver may not work
properly because it is out of its operating temperature range.
• CAUTION! Shorter battery life could occur if the battery is
left fully charged, completely discharged, or in an excessive
temperature environment (above +45˚C) for an extended
period of time. If the battery must be left unused for a long
time, it must be detached from the radio after discharging.
You may use the battery until the battery indicator shows
half-capacity, then keep it safely in a cool dry place with the
temperature between –20˚C to +25˚C.
24
D Charging caution
• R DANGER! NEVER charge the battery pack in areas with
extremely high temperatures, such as near fires or stoves,
inside a sun-heated car, or in direct sunlight. In such environments, the safety/protection circuit in the battery will activate, causing the battery to stop charging.
• WARNING! DO NOT charge or leave the battery in the battery charger beyond the specified time for charging. If the
battery is not completely charged by the specified time, stop
charging and remove the battery from the battery charger.
Continuing to charge the battery beyond the specified time
limit may cause a fire, overheating, or the battery may rupture.
• WARNING! NEVER insert the battery and transceiver (battery attached to the transceiver) into the charger if it is wet or
soiled. This could corrode the battery charger terminals or
damage the charger. The charger is not waterproof.
• CAUTION! DO NOT charge the battery outside of the specified temperature range: ±0˚C to +45˚C. Icom recommends
charging the battery at +20˚C. The battery may heat up or
rupture if charged out of the specified temperature range.
Additionally, battery performance or battery life may be reduced.
