5-inch touch screen controlled Class A VHF radio (JHS-800S) featuring a uniform, corporate design with manual-free operation.
This equipment has standard functions that include regular radiotelephone and DSC (digital selective calling) for distress transmissions, as well as functions to playback and record radio calls in real-time and an easy-to-operate self-diagnosis function.
As of February 2019 the JHS-800S is the world’s first Class A marine VHF radio-telephone featuring a 5-inch high-brightness color LCD touch screen, which makes it an outstanding innovative design.
The backlights of the LCD screen with a wide viewing angle and the operation buttons are fully adjustable, preventing interference while keeping night watch.
The JHS-800S even has a Bluetooth®*1 interface for connecting to an external wireless speaker mic (optional).
The JHS-800S channel settings and DSC calls can be operated remotely from the JRC MFD*2. While watching the MFD, you can talk on a location away from the JHS-800S equipment, using a wireless speaker mic.
The received voice recording (up to 8 minutes) and playback function enables later confirmation or temporary saving of communications.
The digital audio amplifiers, equalizer function for deep-normal-high voice, specially designed speakers and new handset offer superior sound quality. A remote standalone microphone and pedalswitch can be connected to via a junctionbox. It is possible to operate the VHF with optional controllers up to 100 m away from the bridge.
