Industry Database

Standard Horizon has announced a new addition to its range of portable VHF radios, the HX210E. This low cost portable unit builds on Standard Horizon’s extensive experience of marine radios and combines a large display with a compact and ergonomic case.

The HX210E features a high capacity internal lithium ion battery, and it is the compact size of this that has allowed for the smaller and more ergonomic case to be built around it. The case itself is buoyant and waterproof to 1 metre for 30 minutes, and is designed to float face up if dropped overboard. A unique feature is a water-activated strobe light on the cover, allowing the radio, or in the case of a man-overboard, the person attached to it, to be found at night.

This new radio has one of the largest screens in its class, and this has a high resolution display for crisp dot matrix readouts, and a super-bright and dimmable backlit LCD screen. The transmission power can be toggled between 1W, 2.5W and 6W, depending on local requirements.

The transceiver can be programmed for all of the main VHF marine channels via the ‘Easy-to-Operate’ menu system, with programmable function keys to customize the most frequent settings.

It also features an accessory jack to allow the use of a speaker, microphones and headsets. The integral FM radio will receive broadcasts from between 76MHz to 108MHz, making the HX210E a small but versatile companion out on the water.

As with all Standard Horizon floating transceivers, there is a no quibble, no cost three-year waterproofing guarantee, and the unit is supplied with a desktop 3-hour rapid charging cradle.
