Info on radio

Hi Charles The Model No is RT64 with the optional DSC facility. It was bought for our club boat which we have now sold. The radio was never used and was only bought in Oct. It is still boxed. It is a good radio and the fact that a DSC can be added means when it becomes compulsary in 2005 you will not need to scrap it only get the add on.

Cheers

Tony

wots with this compulsory bit???????
There is no compulsion for us leisure users , voluntary fit, people to switch to DSC. In 2005 C/G are scheduled to stop dedicated headset listening to ch16 and use a speaker in ops room instead. Still keeping ch16 watch for forseeable future.
Any fixed vhf legally sold new in the uk over last couple of years has to be DSC compatible (by addition of controller unit)
No one is going to be compelled to scrap vhf's in 2005

Can one fit an external speaker to it and how much does the DSC unit which goes with it cost. Apologies for the all the questions, too bloody lazy to find out myself.
Oh, is it still available as I would definitely be interested, quite like the idea of not two, but three VHF's on board.

This is the one.......

DSC-Wavelengh

To Wavelengh

Obviously got your back up a little.No ones saying Scrap VHF's........The coastguard will only be keeping a roaming watch on Ch16, which means they may miss your call.as they will not have a dedicated person screening channel 16.......
Any sensible person wither just leisure or fun should switch over to the DSC at least and not soley rely on the VHF after 2005. At the end of the day its your life at risk...........

Tony
