    Easy installation
    Mounting a VHF radio has never been easier. The Explorer GX1600 has an ultra thin, compact rear case, only 3.5” in depth or half the depth of comparable VHF radios on the market. The rear case design also gives flexibility when flush mounting the radio in tight areas or bracket mounting the radio by taking up less dash space, and allowing more mounting options.
    ITU-R M493-11 Class D Digital Selective Calling
    The EXPLORER is an ITU-R M493 Class D class VHF with a separate Channel 70 receiver, which allows DSC calls to be received even when listening to communications. 

    The DSC DISTRESS function when activated transmits a digital MAYDAY including vessel identification, Latitude / Longitude and time (with GPS connected), to facilitate prompt response. Additional calls that can be made are Individual, Urgency, Safety, Position Report and Send. 

    Additional features include DSC test call and menu selection for Auto DSC channel switching.
    RAM3 second station mic capable
    Need to remotely control the VHF from your cockpit of fly bridge? The EXPLORER is RAM3 remote mic capable to control all VHF, DSC functions at a second station.
    Big, bold display
    There is no question about it. With a big, bold display there is no mistaking the information. The contrast and brightness can be adjusted for situations where the radio cannot be mounted directly in front of you.
    Programmable Scan, Priority Scan and Dual Watch
    Scanning is not an issue with the EXPLORER. The radio can be setup to scan any number of channels with or without a Channel 16 as the priority channel or simply can be setup to scan between a priority channel and one other channel (dual watch).
    Clearvoice noise reduction technology
    The EXPLORER features Clear Voice Noise Reduction Technology eliminating unwanted background noises like engines and wind during transmission. This assures transmissions are crystal clear along with dedicated 16/9, H/L keys and channel selection.
    Navigate to Waypoints
    The EXPLORER is capable of entering and saving up to 100 waypoints. These waypoints may be selected and navigated to by using a unique navigation compass display that shows your vessels SOG, COG, BRG (Bearing) and DST (Distance) to the waypoint when connected to an external GPS.
    DSC Position Polling and NMEA in/output
    Easily share position information with other DSC equipped vessels using the position request and position reporting functions. With the push of a few buttons you can request the position of another vessel, or simply send your position information to the vessel you select. 

    The GPS Position of a received DSC Distress or Position Request call can be shown on a compatible GPS Chart plotter simply by connecting 2 NMEA wires. 

    In addition, the EXPLORER may be setup to automatically poll the GPS position of up to 4 stations.
    Programmable Channel Names
    The Explorer is supplied from the factory preloaded with description of the use of Marine channels (16-Distress, 22A-USCG, 71-Pleasure...). The channel names may be customized by the user to easily understand the use of each channel.
    GPS repeating
    By connecting a GPS to the EXPLORER; Position, date, and time are also displayed when interfaced with a GPS receiver.
    NOAA Weather channels and Weather Alert
    10 NOAA and Canadian Weather channels are pre-programmed and easily selectable using the dedicated WX key. In addition, the EXPLORER can be set to monitor WX channels and provide an audible alert to inform of pending storm advisories.
    3-Year waterproof warranty
    If the EXPLORER fails for any reason (including water damage) during normal use for the first 3 years of ownership, STANDARD HORIZON will repair or replace it free, without hassles or charges. If it fails for anytime thereafter in normal use, for as long as the original purchaser owns the radio, STANDARD Horizon's Lifetime Flat Rate and Customer Loyalty Service Programs will cover it.
