In busy shipping lanes or bustling marinas, the RS35 Fixed VHF Radio/AIS Receiver offers the ability to see, hear and be heard for increased safety. The RS35 combines a built-in dual channel AIS receiver, which allows AIS reception and VHF use with just one antenna, and the latest VHF functionality, and the optional HS35 Wireless Handset offers an impressive range and inductive charging.
Plug-and-play NMEA 2000 integration lets you view another boat’s DSC distress call from a Simrad NSS chartplotter screen or receive vital GPS location data for accurate DSC call information. The RS35 has selectable Dual and TriWatch scanning modes and a large internal speaker, which is great for use as a PA. The 22-watt hailer horn output has an automatic fog signal and a listen-back function.
Additional features include 20 user-programmable names with MMSI and TrackYourBuddy™, which keeps you up to date with your friends’ positions, by allowing you to connect your VHF DSC position polling with your chartplotter to show the location of up to three boating friends on the chart display.
The innovative HS35 handheld wireless mic (Model 14078000) is the perfect companion for the RS35, offering a compact handheld solution. With a range of up to 100m from the RS35 VHF base, battery life of eight hours and inductive charging, the HS35 is energy efficient and always ready to use.
