Product details

Compact VHF Marine Transceiver with Class D DSC controller. Thanks to the large 31 x 55 mm display and its icon-guided menu, this IPX8 waterproof radio is very easy to use. The functions required for participation in GMDSS DSC Distress Calls such as individual, group, and All Ships-calls are, of course, standard procedure for the GX1300E as well as the quick scan settings, which lets you monitor pre-programmed or priority-marked radio channels.
The GX1300E receives all the required position data for DSC functions via the NMEA 0183 interface. GX1300E has a NMEA 0183 interface. Depending on the requirements, custom softkeys can can be programmed, which will make menu navigation even easier.
Depending on your needs, the system can also be switched to the inland waterways system ATIS. The "presetkey" function lets you access the last 10 channels used. If desired or necessary during navigation, the so-called "polling" function allows you to retrieve the GPS position data of up to 4 yachts / boats that are using DSC and are within radio range.

GX 1300E
Simple programming and easy operation. Operating instructions are unfortunately only in English. German instructions would significantly improve customer service.
