The Standard Horizon GX1600B Explorer Ultra Compact Class D VHF has an ultra thin and compact rear case, only 3.5'' in depth or half the depth of comparable VHF radios on the market. The rear case design also gives flexibility when flush mounting the radio in tight areas or bracket mounting the radio by taking up less dash space, and allowing more mounting options.

The GX1600 has been designed to meet the NEW ITU-R M493-13 Class D DSC regulations with a dedicated channel 70 receiver that continuously watches for DSC calls. The GX1600S has the ability to accept a RAM3 Remote Access Microphone allowing full control of all radio and DSC functions from a second station. Additional features include, oversized full dot matrix display, user selectable Programmable Scan, Dual Watch, Ch16 Priority Scan, user changeable channel names, NOAA weather with alert, dedicated preset channel and a dedicated CH16/9 keys and 3 programmable soft keys. The microphone also has dedicated 16/9 and H/L keys, channel selection keys and uses ClearVoice noise reduction technology which reduces wind and engine noise when transmitting.

Another unique feature of the GX1600 is the ability to ''poll'' (request and send) the GPS location of another vessel and show that vessel's position on the radio's display. Connecting a compatible GPS chart plotter will allow the GX1600 to repeat your position, SOG, COG and time on the full dot matrix display. The GX1600 is backed by an industry leading 3-year waterproof warranty.

what type of antenna is required for this radio
1 Answer
Depending on the vessel this varies. The higher the antenna the better the signal. Assuming this is a smaller boat without a tower and this is being mounted on a hard/soft top we recommend this: http://www.tackledirect.com/shakespeare-galaxy-5225-xt-8ft-vhf-antenna-w-6db-gain.html It is important you decide which mount you would like to use. We can provide those also.
