The new SEA 157SA VHF/FM DSC Marine Radios are compliant to ITU and IMO standards for DSC Class A
GMDSS radios. These new VHF transceivers are built on the widely accepted and proven model 157
platform and award winning DSP technology. Several advanced communication capabilities and new feature
sets enhance operator safety and efficiency for individual vessel and fleet operators. These features meet the
demanding technical performances and operational requirements of today’s professional Maritime Operators
and fleet services.
Significant new features include a high-resolution display; transmitter/receiver bandwidth covers all USA/Int’l
channels and selective private channel access (with FCC license), Public Coast Station calling operations,
dedicated DSC receiver/controller (Channel 70), plus software expandable user/operator interfaces and
operator setup functions.
These radios can be programmed to support Fleet Management operations such as automatic position
broadcasting and external PC applications for asset tracking, text and data messaging and command and
control functions. Critical functions can be programmed in advance as “set and forget” radio operations.
* Note; certain features require an external PC Application.
The 157SA/R (Remote) features SEABUSS interconnection with unique Remote Control capability. With all
the new features, 157S models remain easy to operate and to program. Professional and Commercial SEA
157S model versions are in production and available for delivery.
