Uniden makes a splash with new Waterproof VHF Marine Radio
As the summer boating season approaches, Uniden has launched a new range of submersible, waterproof VHF marine handheld radios – the MHS050.
Featuring an innovative floating and lightweight design, the new 2.5 Watt MHS050 is fully submersible and waterproof*, making it the ultimate in marine communication. This handheld radio is exceptionally easy to use and ideal for use on boats, jetskis, canoes and other watercraft. Built specifically to handle Australian and New Zealand marine conditions, the durable MHS050 offers outstanding performance in all situations.
Equipped with a precision matched built-in antenna, the MHS050 delivers superior range and crystal clear sound. Users can also switch the radio between 1W and 2.5W output to either preserve battery life or access maximum transmission power. In addition, the unit’s Large Backlit LCD Display enables easy viewing at night or in low light situations.
The MHS050 harnesses the latest safety technology with a Triple Watch Mode, which monitors emergency channels 16 and 9 simultaneously for a signal while at the same time allowing users to listen to their selected channels. Users also have quick access to emergency channels with a convenient One Touch Channel 16/9 button.
