Key Features

  • Built in FM Broadcast band receiver: The HX210 has an expanded receiver allowing the user to tune in to their favorite FM radio station. The radio will receive FM broadcast bands between 76MHz to 108MHz
  • Compact Case Design: Compact, ergonomic case design is a result of new internal, large capacity 1850mAh Lithium Ion battery technology; This gives the radio a much smaller case design yet light enough to float face up if dropped in the water
  • Water Activated Emergency Strobe light: If the radio falls in the water, an emergency strobe light is automatically activated, even when the unit is turned off; The strobe can be reconfigured to flash on and off, flash SOS, or set to stay on continuously
  • Oversized full dot matrix display: The HX210 boasts one of the largest displays in a compact and affordable handheld VHF; With a larger display, greater (dot matrix) resolution, and a super bright backlight there will be no mistaking the information displayed on the face of the radio day or night
  • E20 Easy to Operate Menu System: New intuitive menu system allows easy access to all of the setup functions of the radio, making it easy to customize settings based on the preferences of the user
