STAN­DARD HORI­ZON HX40E

Yachting Monthly - - GROUP TEST - stan­dard­hori­zon.co.uk

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.
