JMC introduces the RT-2509 an IPX7 waterproof VHF/DSC

The JMC RT-2509 is a submersible (1m depth for 30 minutes) waterproof (IPX7) VHF/DSC class-D Marine Radio (TX: 156.000-162.525 MHz, RX: 156.000-163.425 MHz, CH70: 156.525 MHz) with built-in GNSS receiver (1559-1610 MHz). It is a compact (155 X 68 X 108 mm) Marine Radio ideal for installations where space is at a premium, but performance cannot be compromised.

The RT-2509 is a class-leading Marine Radio using a dual VHF receiver design with a dedicated independent DSC receiver for constant monitoring of CH70 even while receiving another channel. Its built-in GNSS receiver supports reception from GPS / GLONASS / SBAS (WAAS / MSAS / GAGAN / EGNOS) satellite constellations. Moreover, an input for external NMEA0183 2.0 data is also available using: RMC, GGA, GNS, and GLL sentences. This one is used for backup purposes and allows for LAT/LON position transmission even when the built-in GNSS receiver is not operational.

The operation of JMC RT-2509 is intuitive with an ergonomic layout. The front panel rotary encoder knob controls Volume, Squelch, or Menu settings. The fist-mike with Channel Up/Down, H/L, and CH16/Call keys combined with the 4 Soft-keys (F1 ~ F4) on the front panel allows for quick menu operation and settings. While the full dot matrix 2.4” backlit LCD display provides clear status indications for TX, BUSY, TAG, CALL, HI/LOW (power), Duplex channel, WX, GPS, DSC (Received), U/I/C mode, LAT/LON position data, DSC message, etc. There is also a Dual/Tri-watch Function for constant monitoring of CH16 plus the selected channels. All the International (I), USA (U), Canadian (C) Marine VHF Channels plus 10 Weather Channels (WX) are available.
