GME GX300 Marine/Outdoor 27 / 29Mhz Base Radio 5W (black)

GME GX300 Marine/Outdoor 27 / 29Mhz Base Radio 5W (black)

Product Information    

The GX300 is an innovative new design incorporating both 27 MHz Citizen Band and 27 MHz Marine Band transceivers into one unit. Channel recall, dual watch, large back-lit display, very effective noise limiter and enviroment protected design (IP55) the GX300 covers virtually all aspects of 27 MHz communication on land or sea in one unit. The front mounted speaker provides loud clear reception and the channel controls on the microphone make operation easy.

The GX300 is supplied with a gimbal mounting bracket, but with a depth of just 70 mm, the GX300 is also perfectly suited to flush mounting (using the optional flush mount kit).

Available in either black or white, the GX300 allows the user to easily switch between CB and marine mode. The compact design is approximately one third the depth of all other 27 MHz radios, allowing for shallow flush mounting installations.

Samsa Comments on 29Mhz radios – dated 24 October 2011
As a guideline, Category A to C vessels should be provided with a fixed radio installation while, Category D vessels could be provided with either fixed or hand-held radio’s – The owner/skipper should however motivate regarding his/her choice at the time of survey.
Regarding the continued use of 29 MHz radio’s it should be noted that these are no longer in commercial use and it is therefore extremely unlikely that distress communications will be received from passing ships. The use of 29 MHz should therefore be limited to area’s where specific shore stations are manned.    
It is thought that 29 MHz radio’s will be phased out in the short to medium term, however, numerous stakeholders need to be consulted as part of this process – SAMSA will endeavour to communicate any planned changes to the public in this regard in good time.
Yours in safety
