Built tough to withstand the harsh marine environment, GME’s GX800 handheld VHF radio delivers crystal clear communication in a flexible format.

5/1W Switchable Power - Reduce battery consumption by selecting the low power setting when using the radio at close range, ideal for communications between the mother ship and tender, or at full 5W power for communicating over longer distances

Large, Bright LCD Screen - Clear and easy to read, even in difficult lighting conditions

Programmable Scanning including Dual and Tri Watch - Program the way in which your GX800 scans channels to suit your activity. Dual and Tri Watch enable you to monitor a working or club channel while still being able to receive important broadcasts on Channel 16
