Full-featured VHF with Loudhailer and AIS Display
Have an AIS receiver or transponder on your vessel? The GX2000 MATRIX is the perfect radio of choice for you! When the MATRIX is connected to a AIS receiver or transponder (with VDM AIS sentence output at 38400 baud) the display will show AIS targets simply by pressing the dedicated AIS key. The MATRIX will display AIS MMSI, Call Sign, Ship Name, BRG, DST, SOG and COG and will allow you to contact an AIS Ship directly using DSC, show your vessels position in relation to AIS targets and alert you when an AIS ship may be approaching to close to your location via the Closest Point of Approach (CPA) Alarm.
Navigate to Waypoints
The MATRIX is capable of entering and saving up to 100 waypoints. These waypoints may be selected and navigated to by using a unique navigation compass display that shows your vessels SOG, COG, BRG (Bearing) and DST (Distance) to the waypoint when connected to an external GPS.
Digital Selective Calling (DSC)
The MATRIX is Class D class DSC VHF with a separate Channel 70 receiver, which allows DSC calls to be received even when listening to traffic on Marine VHF channels. The DSC DISTRESS function when activated transmits a digital MAYDAY including vessel identification, Latitude / Longitude and time (with GPS connected), to facilitate prompt response. Additional calls that can be made are Individual, All ship - Urgency and Safety, Group, Position report and position request calls.
30W PA and Fog Signaling
The MATRIX includes a 30W Loud Hailer with Fog signals, Bells, and Whistles with listen back. For added benefit, the last selected VHF channel can be heard when in the PA or Fog mode.
DSC Position Request / NMEA Output
Easily share position information with other DSC equipped vessels using the position request and position sharing functions. With the push of a few buttons you can request the position of another vessel, or simply send your position information to the vessel you select. The GPS Position of a received DSC Distress or Position Request call can be shown on a Standard Horizon GPS Chart plotter simply by connecting 2 NMEA wires.
Clear Voice Noise Reduction Technology
The MATRIX features Clear Voice Noise Reduction Technology eliminating unwanted background noises like engines and wind during transmission.
Channel Names and GPS Repeating
All the information you need right at your fingertips. Customizable channel naming allows you to easily change the channel name for greater ease of use and better channel recognition. Position, date, and time are also displayed when interfaced with a GPS receiver.
Dual Remote Station
All of the features of the main radio (including DSC, PA, Fog signaling and listenback) can now be accessed through the optional RAM3 speaker microphone (CMP30). With a RAM3 , the MATRIX becomes an intercom system allowing two way private communications between the radio and second station mic.
Oversized Knobs and Scanning
Radio operation and channel selection is made easy (even with gloves) with the oversized volume, squelch and channel selector knobs The MATRIX has Dual Watch, which scans a selected channel and ch.16 simultaneously allowing you to monitor a channel and not miss calls made on ch.16. Programmable Scan and Priority Scan features are user programmable
