Luke and Hazel Robertson will take part in a 2,000 Alaskan expedition

Standard Horizon is to sponsor cancer-charity fundraisers Luke and Hazel Robertson as they take part in a 700-mile kayak journey across the top of Alaska.

The expedition – Due North: Alaska – will also include a trek across Alaska on foot and bicycle making a total journey of more than 2,000 miles.

Accompanying the pair on the 80-day expedition will be a pair of Standard Horizon’s HX870E hand-held DSC VHFs, with built-in GPS and route navigation functionality.

This handset features an 1800mAh battery, a large, backlit screen, and a group monitoring function, allowing the position of up to eight other users to be shown on the compass-like display.

There is also an automatic distress strobe and a pre-set key for favourite channels. The set can be safely immersed to a depth of 5ft for at least 30 minutes.

In 2009, Mr Robertson survived surgery to remove a life-threatening brain cyst. The two athletes will raise money for the Marie Curie cancer charity.
