Fea­ture-packed VHF ra­dio

Yachting Monthly - - BOATS & EQUIPMENT -

B&G’s new en­try-level DSC VHF ra­dio, the V20, claims to be easy to use and in­tu­itive, and with its sim­ple and clearly laid out front panel there seems no rea­son to dis­agree. Chan­nel se­lec­tion is via a ro­tary knob, and but­ton spac­ing is also good. The fist mic has just four but­tons, in­clud­ing one ded­i­cated to Ch16.

The dis­play, too, is clear, with black writ­ing on a white back­ground un­less you se­lect night mode, which in­verts it to whiteon-black. There are no ‘soft but­tons’ that swap func­tions when you look at dif­fer­ent dis­play pages.

The V20 can be flush- or bracket-mounted and the unit IPX7 rated, so it can be in­stalled at the helm. It's is NMEA-2000 (N2K) com­pat­i­ble, which makes fit­ting it a cinch if you have an N2K net­work on board.
