Uniden VHF Waterproof Two-Way Marine Radio MHS75 Features

- All USA, International, and Canada Channels - The MHS75 covers all USA, International, and Canadian marine channels
- All NOAA Weather Channels with Weather Alert - it comes preprogrammed with NOAA weather channels. The Emergency/Weather Alert allows it to function as a severe weather warning radio and will also alert one to any local or national emergencies. If the NOAA issues warning while this feature is turned On, the radio sounds an alert tone.
- Instant Channel 16/9/Triple Watch - Triple Watch mode monitors channels 16 and 9 for a signal while one listen to the currently selected channel. The marine radio checks channel 16 and 9 for activity every 2 seconds.
- Dual, Triple, Quad Watch Operation - These different watch modes let one monitor up to two Coast Guard Distress/Hailing channels and one weather channel along with one regular marine channel.
- Memory Channel Scan - Automatically scan programmed channels with Memory Channel Scan. Scanning starts from the lowest to highest channel and stops when it finds an active channel. It remains on that channel until the transmission ends, then resumes scanning after a two-second delay period.
- Clip-On DC Charger - The MHS75 ships with a rapid clip-on DC charger.
- JIS8 Waterproof Level - Uniden MHS75 VHF Hand Held Radio won't give up no matter how wet it gets. It also features a floating design, and is submersible for up to 30 minutes at five feet.
- 1 /2.5/5 Watt Switchable - Select between 1, 2.5, and 5 Watts for short and long-range communication. This is also a convenient way to save a little battery life. In most situations, the 1 Watt transmission power is all you need. If you find yourself far away from other stations and have trouble getting a response, you may need to boost the transmission power from 1 Watt to 2.5 Watts or 5 Watts
- Easy Viewing - The MHS75's large, easy-to-read backlit LCD display and backlit keypad make it easy to use, day or night.
- Three-Year Warranty - The MHS75 is backed by a three-year warranty.
Few notes: this is well built hand radio set. It works well on all three power settings with good battery life - especially if you are careful about wattage. Adapter plastic is strong and sturdy, maybe little bit too stiff, so be careful in order not to break something. AC/12V adapter is recommended for home charging.
