Big performance in a small package

The GME GX620 Handheld 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 marine VHF radios, including channel scan, instant Channel 16 access, dual and triple watch the compact 5 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. Ingress protection and solid die-cast construction ensure reliability in any marine environment.  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
