Leading the industry again with the Enhanced RAM+ capablity!
The STANDARD HORIZON MATRIX introduces a whole new level of Digital Selective Calling, Position Polling and second station flexibility with the Enhanced RAM+ microphone.
Enhanced RAM+ capable
The MATRIX has the capability of being connected to the Enhanced full-function Remote Access Microphone (RAM+ Mic). This advance remote operates as a full second station to the MATRIX at the fly bridge, cockpit, tower or location of your choice. The submersible RAM+ has a huge channel display, speaker microphone that allows the user to remotely control all VHF radio functions, Digital Selective Calling functions and can show channel names and repeat GPS information.
Full Digital Selective Calling
The most important reason to have a VHF radio on board your vessel is safety. The MATRIX meets the internationally recognized requirements for RTCM SC-101 Digital Selective Calling. In an emergency the MATRIX is capable of transmitting and automated Digital MAYDAY transmission that includes GPS position and Date and time (when connected to GPS). The MATRIX also can transmit and receive DSC Urgency, Safety, Group and Individual calls.
STANDARD HORIZON has pioneered the capability to poll (request and send) the GPS location of another vessel and show the position of that vessel on the VHF's display. Standard Horizon has taken this feature one step further, if any Standard Horizon GPS is connected to the MATRIX the polled position of the vessel is shown on the display of the GPS chart plotter making it easy to navigate to the location of the polled vessel. This is a great feature for anyone wanting to know the position of anther vessel for example you buddy that is catching fish, or finding the location of a person you are cruising with.
NOAA WX Alert, DW, Scanning and more
The MATRIX has the capability to warn you of impeding severe weather by audibly alerting you to switch to the active weather channel. Want to monitor more than one channel? The MATRIX can be programmed to scan any number or combination of channels with or without priority channel. Want to scan between one channel and CH16, you can using the Dual Watch function. Changing channels and operating the DSC functions is made easy with the oversized channel selector knob and alpha-numeric display.
Built Better, backed better
Because the MATRIX is built better it’s backed better. If the STANDARD HORIZON MATRIX fails for any reason (including water damage) during normal use in the first 3 years of ownership, STANDARD HORIZON will repair or replace it for free, without hassles or charges. If it fails anytime thereafter in normal use, for as long as the customer owns the radio, STANDARD HORIZON’s “Lifetime Rate Service, “Customer Loyalty Policy” Programs will cover it. The flat rate is determined at the time of the original purchase.
