The SR203 VHF Handheld Survival Radio complies with all IMO criteria for SOLAS vessel transport. The SR203 is the appropriate choice for required and voluntary transport because it is built strong for all marine applications and easy to use in an emergency. The SR203 VHF portable radio has a battery life of more than 16 hours.
The illuminated digital display and control buttons make operation in low light situations a breeze. The SR203 is automatically tuned to Channel 16 after being turned on, and it has a single push Channel 16 call button to swiftly revert to the emergency channel.
Thanks to its highly efficient transmitter intended to maximize battery life, the SR203 VHF Handheld Survival Radio has a battery life of over 16 hours (@ -4°F (-20°C)). The radio's primary battery can be firmly linked to the radio without worry of losing its charge thanks to the ingenious battery protection tab. In an emergency, the radio will always be available without the need to remove protective labels. Simply remove the red protection tab, and the radio will be ready to tune to channel 16 right away.
