The compact, ergonomic case design is a result of the new internal, large capacity 1850 mAh Lithium Ion battery technology. This gives the HX210 a much smaller case design yet light enough to float face up if dropped in the water.
A Water Activated Emergency Strobe light is automatically activated if the radio falls in the water, even when the unit is turned off! The strobe can be reconfigured to flash on and off, flash SOS, or set to stay on continuously.
The HX210 boasts one of the largest full dot matrix displays in a compact and affordable handheld VHF. With a larger display, greater dot matrix resolution, and a super bright back-light there will be no mistaking the information displayed on the face of the radio day or night.
The intuitive menu system allows easy access to all of the setup functions of the radio, making it easy to customize settings based on the preferences of the user.
The Standard HX210 has an expanded FM Broadcast band receiver allowing the user to tune in to their favorite FM radio station. The radio will receive FM broadcast bands between 76 MHz to 108 MHz.
Because the Standard HX210 is built better, it's backed better.
If your Standard Horizon HX210 ever fails for any reason including water damage during normal use in the first three years, Standard Horizon will repair or replace it free, without hassle or charges, period!
If it fails thereafter in normal use it is covered by Standard Horizon's Flat Rate Service Program.
