GME heralds the amazing G-Com marine VHF handheld radio

GME, Australia’s leading marine electronics company, will shortly broaden their product portfolio with the introduction of the amazing G-Com GX660 marine VHF handheld radio.

The GX660 being fully waterproof with an IP67 rating is ideal for use on dinghies and runabouts without onboard electrical systems; it has the further bonus of being buoyant, so any onboard mishap where the radio takes a dip overboard will not result in a one way ticket to Davy Jones’s Locker.

This is a true mariner’s radio, boasting all the features only generally found in the top of the line portables. Attributes include a large backlit LCD screen, providing outstanding visibility of channel selection and other vital information, full 5 watt RF output, which incidentally is the maximum legally permitted under the Australian/New Zealand 4415.2 standard, this is user switchable to 1 watt for battery preservation and inshore communications.

The physical design is an appealing blend of aesthetics and practical ergonomics, a large colour coded key pad is easy to use, even with gloves on, providing straightforward access to a plain English menu and the operating functions.

Taking its lead from the mobile phone industry, the GX660 uses a 1400mAh Lithium Ion rechargeable battery pack which will deliver more than sufficient power for a day’s boating between charges

The GX660 will be available mid March and offers really tremendous value at an RRP of AUD$299.
