STANDARD HORIZON HX40E
This new VHF from Standard Horizon is small – 5.2cm x 9.5cm x 3.3cm (2.05inx 3.74in x 1.3in) – and weighing only 230g without the antenna it’s about the size of a standard pack of cards. It has an easy-to-navigate menu and can save 10 channels as presets, as well as having CH16 available at the press of a button. While it’s waterproof, the radio doesn’t float unless you opt for the SHC-29 floating case, which enlarges it. The radio has a battery-save function to give the most from its 7.4v lithium polymer battery, while the less batterycautious owner can take advantage of the built-in FM radio.
