Waterproof Intrinsically Safe Handheld VHF Radio
Built for reliability and performance, the Standard HX400 will not let you down. This easy to operate Handheld VHF is intrinsically safe which is a protection technique for safe operation of electronic equipment in explosive atmospheres. HX400IS is water submersible to IPX8 (5’ for 30 Minutes), and also features a 5 or 1 watt power output.
The built in noise cancelling Mic greatly improves voice quality while communicating in noisy environments, ensuring that the end user can understand your message without interference. Loud speaker audio assures you can be heard in loud and windy locations. You can also stay on top of weather with pre-programmed NOAA Weather Channels! Changing between U.S., Canadian, or International channels is as easy as 1-2-3.
The Lithium Ion-Lion supplied battery provides about 17 hours of communication time, and the low battery indicator lets you know when it’s time to re-charge. Every Standard Horizon HX400 ships from the factory preloaded with description of the use of Marine channels (16-Distress, 22A-USCG, 71-Pleasure). Customize these so you can easily understand the use of each channel to suit your personal preference. The Standard Horizon HX440IS can withstand the harshest environments, and you come to appreciate the quality and performance of the great VHF.
