INDUSTRY FIRST DSC portable transceiver capable of transmitting and receiving on Marine VHF, Family Radio Service (FRS).


MULT-BAD Receiver
  • First portable marine transceiver capable of receiving AM, FM and Aeronautical bands. Imagine being in a small vessel and wanting to listen to music and news broadcasts. With the HX471S, simply press the BAND key to select the FM band and tune to your favorite channel. Want to listen to a ball game on the AM Broadcast band? You CAN with the HX471S. The HX471S even allows you to monitor the AM Aeronautical band. Simply put, the HX471S allows you to monitor a range of frequencies previously unavailable in any Portable Marine VHF!

Value Packaging
  • Packaged with a 1300mAh Lithium-Ion battery, the HX471S will deliver 10-12 hours of operation off a single charge. In addition the Lithium-Ion battery never will develop a "memory" inhibiting it's ability to deliver a complete day of service. Attaching either 110VAC or 12VDC cable to the NMEA Charging Cradle allows the Lithium-Ion battery to be rapid charged within 3 hours.

  • Engineered for unparalleled reliablity, the HX471S is designed to exceed submersions of 3 feet for 30 minutes.

3 Year Water Proof Warranty
  • Because the HX471S is built better, it's backed better. If the STANDARD HORIZON HX471S fails for any reason (including water damage) during normal use in the first three years of ownership, STANDARD HORIZON will repair or replace it free. If it fails any time thereafter in normal use for as the original purchaser owns the radio, STANDARD HORIZON's Lifetime Flat rate Service Program will cover it. The flat rate is determined at the time of orignal purchase.

Digital Selective Calling (DSC) Distress Call
  • The HX471S is supplied with a NMEA Charging cradle that allows the radio to be connected to any GPS. Connecting the HX471S to a GPS allows your position of your vessel to be stored inside the HX471S. In the event of an emergency, simply grab the HX471S lift the Distress cover and depress the the DISTESS Key and a DSC Distress call containing your position will be transmitted along with the high intensity Strobe light.
