Fixed VHF Radios
Fixed VHF marine radios are crucial communication tools utilised by seafarers and maritime professionals. They facilitate communication with other ships at sea, as well as coastguard and lifeboat stations, serving as a ship-to-shore communication method when near coastlines.
Fixed VHF radios typically possess a broader broadcast range compared to handheld VHF radio models. This is largely due to the external antenna being mounted on a mast or coach roof. The increased height and antenna size contribute to extending the broadcasting range.
Most of the fixed VHF radios we offer come with a vital feature known as Digital Selective Calling (DSC). Its main function is to send distress signals to both other ships and shore systems. It automatically transmits information about the ship's identity. If your VHF is connected with an onboard GPS, it will also transmit location information.
Fixed marine VHF radios are designed to withstand the harsh conditions of a marine environment. They are generally waterproof or water-resistant, with their sturdy construction capable of enduring exposure to water, salt, and other demanding conditions.
