Image of : B&G V20S Fixed Mount VHF Radio with NMEA2000 - 000-14492-001 B&G V20S Fixed Mount VHF Radio with NMEA2000 - 000-14492-001 Item # 861475


An Easy to Use Radio for Any Vessel : See clearly in bright daylight with a high contrast black-on-white display, and inverted white-on-black night mode. A rotary dial makes channel selection easy, while large buttons provide quick access to other key functions. Dedicated Channel 16 keys, found on both the radio and its fist microphone, offer instant access to the emergency channel. An included gimbal bracket enables simple table-top, overhead, or bulkhead installation. Flush-mount installation is also possible, with an easy mount-from-front solution, to match the low-profile style of our glass bridge displays and accessories. If the radio is configured for USA market, two priority channels are watched: Channel 9 and Channel 16.

Class D DSC Approved: DSC, or "Digital Selective Calling", makes it easier to stay in touch with other boaters and enables you to broadcast your boats location during an emergency. If you find yourself in trouble, the V20S dedicated "distress" button will initiate a DSC distress call that sends your boats position to anyone within VHF range. Used together with a traditional radio distress call, this makes it easier for other boaters with DSC-capable radios to register your situation and come to your aid. An integrated GPS receiver means your position can be sent even if your boats other electronics are powered down.

Easy Access to All International Channels: The V20S is designed for global use and supports all international channels. With tri-channel watch, easily scan between the current channel, emergency channel 16, and another user-configurable priority channel (in the USA, scan between the current channel, emergency channel 16, and calling channel 9). Alternatively, scan through all available channels or just your selected favorites. Emergency channels can be given priority when scanning to reduce the chance of missing distress calls or other urgent safety messages.
