There is no need to worry about finding the perfect Christmas present for the water sport enthusiast this year because with the HX280E, Standard Horizon have done the hard work for you.

The slim, lightweight and waterproof HX280E hand-held VHF radio is an extremely affordable gift, yet comes with plenty of features. It comes pre-programmed with UK marina channels, has dual watch and user programmable scanning functions and the additional function of a preset key that allows direct access to no less than 10 channels.

Battery life is critical for a hand-held, so the HX280E is supplied with a 7.4volt 1650mAh Lithium-Ion battery, which can power the radio for an impressive 13 hours on a single charge (based on a 5-5-90 duty cycle at 5 watts). The sizeable orange LCD display features large digits, and has the added benefit of 5 level squelch and battery indicators.

The HX280E is supplied with the antenna, lithium-ion battery, belt clip, AC charger, and a charging cradle. The HX280E is waterproof to IPX7, so can be submerged to 1 metre for 30 minutes and as with all Standard Horizon products is provided with a three-year waterproof guarantee. The HX280E retails at £109.95 including VAT. Click www.standardhorizon.co.uk to locate your nearest retailer.
