First Look: Standard Horizon HX320 Handheld VHF
Standard Horizon has just released its HX320 handheld VHF, replacing the HX300. This new floating VHF is equipped with Bluetooth for pairing an optional Standard Horizon wireless headset, a USB type-C jack for charging, and a water-activated strobe light.
The 2,100 mAh lithium-polymer battery provides 17 hours of operating time, and the unit is waterproof to IPX7 standards (submersible to 1 meter for 30 minutes). The HX320 delivers 6 watts of transmit power but can be selectable to 2.5 or 1 watts to maximize battery life.
Standard Horizon improved the visibility of the radio’s LCD display, using large, bold channel information flags that can be easily identified. The VHF also features programmable scan, priority scan, dual and triple watch, and a preset key to recall up to 10 favorite channels.
Use the speaker mic jack to add a submersible speaker/microphone. The HX320 weighs 10.23 ounces and measures 5.24 inches high. It costs $149.99.
