On Deck – Digital two way radio series
We offer a very popular and widely used onboard Superyachts comms handheld in the F62D. The F62D is the UHF [ultra-high frequency] version, UHF is for comms down below and around vessel. UHF offers far better bulkhead penetration than VHF. The F62D will be programmed with standard onboard ships comms channels.
Professional VHF Marine Transceiver
For on-deck/tender and general marine band VHF, we recommend the M73 and M73PLUS. The PLUS version has last voice record feature. This is a pro level handheld, super robust, waterproof and lots of features. All ICOM marine radios can be programmed with private channels, if the vessel is already operating on their own private channels.
