Commercial Quality VHF with Alphanumeric Keypad

The keypad allows quick access to most often used functions, input of DSC names and position and direct entry of channels.

Class D Digital Selective Calling

The GX5500S meets the international requirements for Class D 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, Urgency and Safety.

Audio Tone Control

This unique feature allows the treble and bass of the speaker audio to be adjusted for best listening. The effect is similar to adjusting the treble and bass controls on a stereo.

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 GX5500S 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.

30W PA and Fog Signaling

The GX5500S includes a 30W Loud Hailer with Fog signals, Bells, and Whistles with listen back. For added benefit, the last selected VHF channel is can be heard when in the PA or Fog mode.

Plug and Play Front or Rear Panel Mic

The standard hand microphone has a built in speaker and uses Noise canceling technology called ClearVoice for unsurpassed communications even in the noisiest environments. This microphone also has the capability to directly switch between channels 16 and 9, change channels with the large UP/Down keys and can be removed for storage. The microphone may be remoted with the MEK-4 extension kit for custom installations. The MEK-4 contains 20 ft. of routing cable, Stainless Steel panel mount and screws.

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 RAM+ speaker microphone (CMP25) or VH-310 telephone style handset. With a RAM+ or VH-310 connected, the GX5500S becomes an intercom system allowing two way private communications between the radio and second or third station mic, or between second station mic and third station mic.

Optional Bluetooth® Wireless Headset Kit with PTT or VOX

With the optional BTK-2 kit (includes BH-2 headset, BU-1 Bluetooth unit and CAB-2 charger) the GX5500S becomes hands free and can be used up to 30 Feet away.
