This “State of the Art” Marine radio was built to save lives. With built in GPS, it knows your location, and with a push of the “Disaster Key”, the DCS Digital Selective Calling system initiates a mayday, transmitting your location so you can be rescued. This model will also be listening for distress calls, and using the best technology available, CLASS D, it has a built in receiver dedicated to listening to the emergency channels, so there are no missed calls and no interruption of your communications while the radio searches the emergency channels. A design that fits into your hand, the large display offers you a choice of two backlit colors, orange or green. If you drop it in the water, it floats to the surface, and the glow in the dark seals and power key allows you to find it easily. No more difficult menu settings just to change between 3 levels of power, 1, 2.5 or 6 watts. Just set it one time at 1 or 2.5 watts to maximize the battery life, and when you need the maximum transmit allowed, a full 6 watts, just use the POWER BOOST key, and you have instant full power. The bright strobe can easily be turned on, flashing SOS, getting the attention of others when you are in need of help. The design is not only attractive, but achieves the highest level of water tightness, JIX8/IPX8 standard, allowing for complete submersion of 5 feet for over 30 minutes. It also comes complete, with an AC adapter, DC charger, charging cradle, 11 hour rechargeable battery, an accessory battery tray, and a heavy duty swivel belt clip. For your convenience and extra value, there is a two way speaker mic included in the package, a $50 retail value.
GPS Locates You Instantly Allowing Ease of Visiting a Favorite Spot
Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) technology means you can find your favorite fishing or diving spot again and again. But it also means that rescuers will know precisely where to find you if you’re in distress, made even easier with the emergency Digital Selective Calling (DSC) system. One press of a button initiates mayday so rescuers instantly know your location.
Boosting your Transmission Power Increases Your Signal
Boosting your transmission signal makes your voice heard even further, and the radio’s variable transmission power allows you to run at a one watt peak performance with the option of going up to 2.5 watts or 6 watts just when you need it the most.
