Flexibility has been the focus in the design of the GX600D, with it’s impressive compact size, IP67 rating, colour choice and range of mounting/second station options which set the GX600D apart from other DSC radios.
Equiped with a full function keypad microphone with an extremely simple ‘mobile phone style’ operating system, the GX600D ensures that operators of every skill level can access the full benefit of the radio’s extensive feature list. Designed to operate in the 156-163 MHz Marine band.
In many areas of the world, Europe and the USA in particular, all fixed mount VHF radios now are required to include a basic DSC capability. The 25 Watt GME GX600D however, goes well beyond this basic safety requirement and when interfaced with a GPS receiver will be able to transmit crucial vessel information, including position and the nature of the distress call whether it be fire, flooding, collision, grounding, capsize, sinking, adrift, abandoning, piracy or man overboard. In an emergency, one push of the ‘red button’ will send an automated digital distress alert containing your position and Maritime Mobile Service Identity (MMSI) number to rescue facilities and other DSC-equipped vessels within the area.
