Industry Database

Standard Horizon’s HX40E VHF transceiver with 6W of transmitting power will be on display at the TheYachtMarket.com Southampton Boat Show.

Power comes from a built-in 7.4V lithium polymer battery pack, offering 1850mAh of battery life. A battery-save function allows this life to be maximised for lengthy excursions.

When fitted with its optional SHC-29 floatation case, the compact HX40E is fully buoyant, but retains access to all the main marine VHF channels. A preset key can be used to recall up to 10 of the user’s preferred channels, with scanning operations such as dual watch and triple watch for those that need to be monitored.

The dot matrix screen is backlit and the built-in speaker is capable of 600mW, making it easy to hear in adverse weather. For distress situations, there is a dedicated button for Channel 16.

The radio supports ATIS, the Automatic Transmitter Identification System and the built-in FM radio can receive broadcasts between 65MHz to 108MHz.

GX-6000E Quantum

Also on display will be Standard Horizon’s GX-6000E Quantum, a DSC VHF which offers all radio functions including priority scan, programmable scan, position polling and a push-button distress alert.

The GX-6000E Quantum allows the user to track and identify a target and then make radio contact using the soft keys.

Features include full DSC capability, an integrated voice scrambler, a dual zone loud hailer with pre-programmed fog signals and a listen back facility, a GPS navigation page and a Class B (non SOLAS) AIS receiver.
