- performance features


Unique features
Available as semi-duplex or full-duplex, this class A VHF radiotelephone incorporates advanced modular design that allows for maximum installation flexibility.

Direct call by AISTM

When connecting your AIS to the new VHF, new possibilities become available. This innovative feature, unique to JRC, allows you with one push of the button, to quickly navigate through a list of targets in your surrounding area. Bearing, range and MMSI information of target vessels are sorted from the shortest range upwards. You can now easily select the vessel you wish to get in contact with, and send a DSC message immediately.

Intercom and loudhailer

The VHF radiotelephone has an intercom functionality for easy communication with multiple other VHF controllers onboard!
Additionally, to always be in full control and on top of communication with deck or dock hands, a loudhailer function is built in. An optional external speaker with amplifier increases talk power, making your messaging loud and clear, thereby adding to the safety of the vessel.

Clear display

Improved visibility is realised by the integrated 3.8" high brightness silver LCD screen with excellent sunlight viewability.
The main data is displayed in large characters for easy reading.
Display Examples

Extendable up to 5 controllers

The VHF series configuration allows having up to 5 controllers covering various important sections onboard. Additionally, there is a range of possibilities for connecting extra handsets and printers.

120 seconds digital recording

JRC has included a recording function for the last 120 seconds of open squelch (voice).
In situations where loud engines or other background noises disrupt your reception, this characteristic feature enables you to immediately repeat any unclear messages.
