The Nautic Way Maritime Bookstore offers several models of portable VHF.
Are you looking for a VHF?
VHF is essential to your safety. According to Division 240, a waterproof and floating portable VHF is mandatory on board all boats sailing more than 60 NM from a shelter (in addition to a fixed VHF).
It is simply recommended for coastal navigation less than 2 NM from shelter.
As this is essential communication and therefore safety equipment, we recommend that you have a portable VHF when traveling in the dinghy and in addition to your grab bag, whatever your navigation category.
VHF sealing standards
Protection index IPx6
This standard indicates protection against untested dust and liquid protection against strong splashes of water (splash, rain). However, it is not resistant to immersion.
Protection class IPx7
This standard indicates protection against untested dust and liquid protection against the effects of immersion in a maximum depth of 1 m and for 30 minutes.
VHF Bluetooth function
Bluetooth makes it possible to switch the ringing and the call of a mobile phone on the VHF. This wireless relay system offers the possibility of storing the GSM portable in a dry and sheltered place (inside the boat or in a waterproof pocket). Simply press the Bluetooth key on the VHF to transfer the incoming call from the mobile phone to the VHF and answer. Distance between phone and VHF: up to 6 m.
The GSM portable operation, carefully sheltered in a raincoat pocket or inside the boat, receives a call.
The ringing of the mobile phone resounds in the loudspeaker of the VHF.
Pressing the Bluetooth button on the VHF and communication is established wirelessly with the correspondent, without it being necessary to manipulate the GSM mobile phone.
Once the communication is finished, simply press the Bluetooth button on the VHF again to stop the communication.
