The new GME GX620 Hand Held Marine VHF radio offers boat owners and marine enthusiasts a substantially lower cost portable option without sacrificing features or compromising on quality.
With most of the features of the larger 25 Watt fixed-mount GME marine VHF transceivers, including channel scan, instant Channel 16 access, dual and triple watch the compact 3 Watt GX620 is ideal for dinghies or tenders that need to keep in touch with the 'mother ship' or small boats that don’t have electrical systems or sufficient space for a fixed-mount radio.
Simple operation 6 clearly labelled buttons on the front panel and the volume/power knob maximize simplicity of operation. Even when wearing gloves, the large buttons are easy to operate. A large, clear LCD with backlighting and backlit buttons makes night time operation equally simple.
The GX620 utilises a 1000mAh Lithium Ion (Li-Ion) battery pack with an automatic power saving mode, providing extended operating life without the worry of 'memory effect' found with standard NiCad rechargeable batteries. A professional quality 'drop in' quick charger and carry case are supplied as part of the standard package
The IP54 rated GX620 will be available from mid May through GME’s national dealer network, additional information on the GX620 or any GME marine products may be found at www.gme.net.au
