VHF DSC Marine Radio
Flexibility has been the focus in the design of the GX600D, with it's impressive compact size, IP67 rating, colour choice and range of mounting/second station options which set the GX600D apart from other DSC radios.
Equiped with a full function keypad microphone with an extremely simple 'mobile phone style' operating system, the GX600D ensures that operators of every skill level can access the full benefit of the radio's extensive feature list. Designed to operate in the 156-163 MHz Marine band.
In many areas of the world, Europe and the USA in particular, all fixed mount VHF radios now are required to include a basic DSC capability. The 25 Watt GME GX600D however, goes well beyond this basic safety requirement and when interfaced with a GPS receiver will be able to transmit crucial vessel information, including position and the nature of the distress call whether it be fire, flooding, collision, grounding, capsize, sinking, adrift, abandoning, piracy or man overboard. In an emergency, one push of the 'red button' will send an automated digital distress alert containing your position and Maritime Mobile Service Identity (MMSI) number to rescue facilities and other DSC-equipped vessels within the area.
Competing products in this price range employ a single receiver to monitor both voice and data, the GX600D comes complete with a second receiver so both voice and data are monitored independently ensuring the user will never miss a DSC call. The GX600D DSC radio also provides boaters with a valuable range of non-emergency capabilities, permitting communication with another boat or group of boats using individual or group MMSI numbers. If interfaced to a GPS equipped chartplotter the radio can also send, receive and display each vessel's position.
The GME GX600D, designed and manufactured in Australia, has been styled to complement GME's expanding range of ingress protected marine products.
