Compact Case Design
Compact, ergonomic case design is a result of the new ultra small, large capacity 1800 mAh 3.7V Lithium Ion battery technology. This gives the radio a much smaller case design yet light enough to float face up if dropped in the water.
E2O Easy To Operate Menu System
New intuitive menu system allows easy access to all of the setup functions of the radio, making it easy to customize settings based on the preferences of the user.
New USB Charging Technology
Supplied with a USB charging cable with 230VAC adapter providing more flexibility when recharging the battery.
Water activated Flashing LED
If the Standard Horizon HX-300 accidentally goes overboard a flashing RED LED is automatically activated to help locate and retrive the radio at night.
Standard Horizon HX-300E box contains:
- HX-300 radio
- CAT460 Antenna
- SBR-27LI 3.7 V, 1800 mAh Li-Ion battery
- SAD-17C adapter
- CLIP-22 belt clip
- Charging cable
- User manual
ABOUT THE VHF MARINE BAND: The radio frequencies used in the VHF marine band lie between 156 and 158 MHz. The marine VHF band provides communications over distances that are essentially “Line of sight” Actual transmission range depends much more on antenna type, gain and height than on the power output of the transmitter. On a fixed mount 25 W radio transmission expected distances can be greater than 15 miles, for a portable 5 W radio transmission the expected distance can be greater than 5 miles in “Line of sight”. The use of Marine VHF radio is governed by regulation and local laws. Use by unauthorized persons is not permitted and is subject to fines and confiscation if convicted. This is especially true when the radio is used on land in a non marine environment where because of location or propagation anomalies es-pecially during the summer, the transmission may cause interference with a search and rescue operation or contribute to a marine collision between pass-ing ships.
