Marine and Land Mobile Channels
The HX400 is factory programmed with all USA, Canadian and International and NOAA Weather channels. It also has the capability to be programmed 40 Land Mobile Radio (137-174MHz) channels with CTCSS or DCS signaling by a Standard Horizon dealer. Note: These channels do require the appropriate Federal Communications Communication license.

The HX400 will surpass your voice transmissions expectations in noisy and windy environments with the built-in noise canceling microphone. No need to purchase an optional voice scrambler for secure communications as the HX400 has it built-in. The internal scrambler is compatible with Standard Horizon VHF Fixed Mount and Handheld VHF 4-code scramblers.
Loud speaker audio
The HX400 is designed to be heard in even the noisiest environments with 700mW of power supplied to the internal speaker.

Programmable Channel Names
The HX400 is supplied from the factory preloaded with description of the use of Marine channels (16-Distress, 22A-USCG, 71-Pleasure). The channel names may be customized by the user to easily understand the use of each channel.
