    The Standard Horizon HX870 VHF Radio is a real workhorse. It all starts with a rugged, die-cast body and an IPX8 submersible waterproof rating of 4.92 feet for 30 minutes. Add to that a 6 Watt transmitter and a long lasting 1800 mAh Li-Ion battery. It can save as many as 20 routes and 200 waypoints.
    You can navigate using the radio’s unique compass page, which shows your vessel’s COG, SOG, BRG (Bearing) and DST (Distance) to the waypoint. The compass page can also show the location of up to 9 other vessels in proximity to yours using the GM (Group Monitoring) tool. 
    The new, easy and simple to use menu system makes this the most intuitive handheld VHF radio available. DSC calling, route and waypoint navigation, position sharing, and navigation to DSC distress call can all be completed in just a few easy steps. 
    The new GM (Group Monitor), using DSC Group Position Call, feature allows you to continuously track and display position information of up to 9 pre-selected vessels.Their position information is displayed on the compass page relative to your location on the display. 
    If the radio goes overboard there’s a water-activated emergency strobe light, even when the unit is turned off. The strobe can be set to flash on and off, flash SOS, or set to stay on continuously. 
    With a very sensitive 66 channel WAAS GPS receiver, the HX870 locks on to a position with speed and accuracy. With position information displayed clearly on-screen you’ll be able to share position information using DSC and navigate to waypoints using the waypoint navigation tool.
    The large, oversized full dot matrix display measures 1.7" wide by 1.7" tall, or 2.3" diagonal. It’s one of the largest in a handheld VHF radio. With the super bright backlight there will be no mistaking the information displayed either day or night.
