Fixed-mount DSC VHF Radio with integrated AIS receiver, GPS, and wireless handset support.
Integrated AIS and GPS Receivers
A dual-channel AIS receiver monitors the position of nearby AIS-equipped vessels, helping you to avoid collisions in crowded harbours and waterways. AIS information can be viewed on the Simrad RS40 VHF’s built-in screen, or overlaid on your chart or radar screen through a compatible multifunction display. An integrated GPS receiver ensures your boat’s location can be sent with DSC distress calls, even if the rest of your on-board electronics are powered down.
Removable Fist Mic
The Simrad RS40 VHF’s removable fist mic can be connected to the front or rear of the radio, and optional extension cables allow the radio and mic to be mounted separately. This offers a simple and cost-effective solution for any mounting location, with no cable clutter. For example, the Simrad RS40 VHF can be mounted overhead, with no hanging cables, while the mic is connected to an extension socket on the dash below.
Expandable with Wireless Handsets
Add an optional wireless handset to the Simrad RS40 VHF to take your radio anywhere on board. The Simrad HS40 handset was designed as an intuitive portable companion to the Simrad RS40 VHF. Each handset duplicates your radio’s display and controls, enabling remote access to all key functions. Up to two Simrad HS40 wireless handsets can be connected to a single base station. With multiple handsets connected, the Simrad RS40 VHF doubles as a handy on-board intercom.
