GME, the Australian leader in Marine and Land-based communications equipment, emergency signalling beacons and television signalling equipment has announced a new 27 MHz Marine/CB Radio will be available for sale from November 2015.
GME’s GX400 is a versatile marine communication tool featuring both 27 MHz Marine Band and 27 MHz Citizen Band transceivers in one unit. Built tough to withstand some of the harshest environments in the world, the GX400 is equally at home at sea or on land.
Ingress protected to IPX7, the GX400 can be positioned on the dashboard either by flush mount or the supplied gimbal bracket mount. With a compact mounting depth of only 45 mm, it’s possible to mount this compact unit into tight locations where space is limited.
For enhanced clarity and ease of use, the GX400 is equipped with dual speakers. One in the front panel and a second built into the waterproof speaker microphone.
For simple installation in small spaces, the GX400 features a rear microphone input socket. This enables the user to run a 5m or 8m extension cable (available soon as an optional accessory) from the rear input to a more convenient location on the vessel where the flush mount socket can be installed.
The MC616 speaker mic can now be input from this location, and a waterproof blanking plug added to the front mic input socket. This is ideal for “above windscreen” installations in hard-tops, eliminating obstruction caused by the mic cable hanging in the skipper’s field of view.
With programmable channel scanning, dual and tri-watch functions users will be sure to not miss important communications, and the large red “Channel 88” direct selection button enables instant access to emergency commincation in the case of distress.
Available in black or white, the GX400 is a stylish and versatile addition to any vessel. The GX400 is available through Authorised GME Dealers at a Recommended Retail Price of $179 inc GST.
