5/1 Watt DSC VHF Handheld Marine Radio - Float & Flash

GME GX850 Handheld VHF Marine Radio with DSC
Loaded with all the features you would normally only expect in a fixed mount radio, the GME GX850 is a high performance Handheld VHF Marine Radio that puts marine safety right in the palm of your hand.  Much more than just a communication device, the GX850 could save your life.
Digital Selective Calling - Use preformatted text instead of voice to transmit urgent or important information to another radio including your GPS co-ordinates and the MMSI number of your vessel.
Man Over Board (MOB) Alert - Send a Man Over Board (MOB) distress message to all vessels within range at the press of a button
On-Screen Speed Display - Monitor your speed via GPS in your preference of either Kms or Knots
Float and Flash - Waterproof to IP67, if this high performance radio is accidentally dropped overboard, it will not only float, but the LCD will flash brightly, ensuring easy location and retrieval
5/1W Switchable Power - Reduce battery consumption by selecting the low power setting when using the radio at close range, ideal for communications between the mother ship and tender, or at full 5W power for communicating over longer distances
Large, Bright LCD Screen - Clear and easy to read, even in difficult lighting conditions

Programmable Scanning including Dual and Tri Watch - Program the way in which your GX800 scans channels to suit your activity.  Dual and Tri Watch enable you to monitor a working or club channel while still being able to receive important broadcasts on Channel 16.
