The JHS-207 two-way VHF radiotelephone is an innovated “two-in-one” radio, which gives the user the opportunity to access both standard GMDSS channels and all maritime VHF channels. This floating VHF radiotelephone equipment meets the GMDSS mounting carriagements.
It has an intuitive and easy-to-use compact design which only weighs 0.3 kg including battery pack. The small and compact two-positioning charger is easy to install and allows the user to access vital information on the display while charging. Every detail has been developed based on user functionality, both in an emergency situation (emergency battery) and in general on board communications (rechargeable battery). When connecting the emergency battery, the radio is automatically in preset emergency mode. Only emergency required features are accessible, thus reducing critical manual radio adjustment time for the user.
The large-capacity battery pack enables long-time operation of 12 hours¹ so you can use it with confidence for a prolonged time even in an emergency.
The VHF has a watertight facility socket and is the first portable two-way VHF radiotelephone that floats without a buoyancy cover.
Up to 57 channels can be used in regular mode and 54 channels equivalent to the two-way VHF radiotelephone device can be used. Furthermore, the JHS-207 two-way VHF radiotelephone has excellent microphone noise cancelling, which can be convenient during noisy onboard daily operations. The VHF can also be connected to an IP67 speaker microphone or a headset with a PTT-module.
