The latest addition to Furuno's HF Radio line that has won the prestigious NMEA award for SSB/GMDSS for the past two years in a row, the FS1503EM is a 150 Watt, P-P Single Sideband (SSB) Radiotelephone. This rugged, splash-proof 150 Watt (max) radio is ideal for commercial fishing operations, extended cruising or any situation requiring long-range communication capabilities. The FS1503EM is 100% Sail-Mail/E-Mail compatible right out of the box, and is capable of full Marine HF Weather Fax reception.
The FCC type-approved FS1503EM incorporates the most advanced technology available and is built to withstand demanding marine conditions. It’s also simple to use, thanks to a choice of rotary control or touchkey frequency/channel selection. Instant access to international calling, and distress frequency 2182kHz is available at the touch of a single button.
Optional remote Station RB500
The optional RB500 allows operation of the radiotelephone at a remote location. Key functions include intercom, instant selection of 2182Khz, squelch on/off, and TX hi/low control.
The FS1503EM has one RS232 port to connect an email modem. If RB500 remote stations are desired, it will be necessary to connect an optional DB500 distribution box to that port. The DB500 can then accommodate up to three RB500 remotes plus the email modem.
