Leading electronics manufacturer, Standard Horizon (B133), announces the arrival of the new GX1200E Eclipse DSC+.
The new set has been updated with user-programmable soft keys on the fascia for easy menu operation, including channel selection buttons, high and low power selection and quick access to Channel 16. The microphone also features Clear Voice Noise Reduction Technology, which filters out unwanted background wind or engine noise.
The GX1200E remains one of the smallest fixed DSC VHF Class D sets on the market, measuring just 2.4”H x 6.1”W x 6.7”D, (61mmH x 155mmW x 170mmD). The front panel is fully waterproof to the stringent IPX7 standard (one meter submersion for 30 minutes) and the set can be flush mounted. When connected to a GPS receiver via an NMEA cable, the current position is clearly shown on the backlit LCD screen, the brightness and contrast of which is fully adjustable. The set can then be programmed to poll for the positions of up to 48 other DSC-equipped vessels and can automatically (or manually) volunteer your own boat’s position when asked.
