The HX300E - The World's first ever marine handheld VHF Transceiver to feature a USB Recharging Port
Remaining at the cutting edge of marine electronics innovation, Standard Horizon is proud to announce the first Marine VHF Handheld to offer the ability to charge via a USB port. Due to the widespread popularity of the USB charging system, finding the correct charger for your handheld has never been easier.
The new ultra compact, high-capacity 1650 mAh 3.7V lithium-ion battery, allows for a much more compact case size and remains light enough to float face up if dropped in the water. Retrieval of the unit is further assisted by a large bright red flashing LED strip along the bottom of the front panel, which activates upon contact with the water. An added feature is that this light will enable even if the radio itself is switched off.
The HX300E is waterproofed to IPX-8 standards submersible to 1.5 metres for 30 minutes; as with all their products, Standard Horizon is so confident of the build quality that it comes with a three-year waterproofing guarantee.
Transmit power is switchable between Low 1W and High 5W, and there is a time-out facility which limits transmission time to 5 minutes thus preventing unintentional prolonged transmissions. Where no charging facilities exist, a dry cell option battery holder, FBA-44, can be used, allowing the radio to be powered by 3 AAA dry cells.
The HX300E features large keys and a bright back-lit display, with battery level, charging, squelch and volume on screen icons. The HX300 has the E2O Easy To Operate menu system, this system allows easy access to all of the setup functions of the radio, making it easy to customise settings based on the preferences of the user.
Channel names can also be customised to be more easily understood, and the programmable scan, priority scan and dual/Tri watch functions mean you are unlikely to miss an important call. A preset key allows the quick selection of the 10 most used channels.
Ergonomically designed and ruggedly built, the HX300E is not only competitively priced, but also offers unrivalled flexibility due to the unique USB recharging facility ideally suited for sailors on the move.
