The Standard Horizon GX2355S Spectrum+ VHF marine radio is loaded with useful features, including Digital Selective Calling (DSC), simple operation and a submersible waterproof case. The Spectrum+ has dual-station capability with an optional Remote Access Microphone, and can also be used as an intercom. The VHF produces 25 watts of power and has all U.S., Canadian and international marine channels, plus 10 dedicated weather channels. The standard microphone uses Standard Horizon’s Clear Voice noise-reduction technology, which diminishes engine and wind noise to provide unfettered voice transmission. Connect the Spectrum+ to a compatible GPS receiver and the large, backlit LCD shows the time, date, lat/lon, speed and course over ground. The unit also helps exchange position data with other vessels. The Standard Horizon GX2355S Spectrum+ has a suggested retail price of $585.
