Link-5 offers a best-in-class microphone with six quick keys for simple and reliable helm operation, plus a built-in speaker that delivers clear audio - even with the ambient noise typically associated with boating. It also features an easy-grip rubber molding cover for secure holding and operation.
Safety is always a concern, so Lowrance designed the Link-5 for clear and simple Class D DSC operation. Link-5 features an efficient, extra large rotary knob interface for easy channel changing, menu navigation, and setting control. Clear display of GPS lat/lon data is presented on a 1" x 1.8" LCD screen with adjustable backlighting. Delivering all USA, Canadian, and International marine channels, the system provides easy access to all DSC functions. The Lowrance Link-5 VHF radio features an extra large Channel 16 key, dedicated volume and squelch knobs, weather keys, selectable Dual and TriWatch modes, local and distant functions, and three user-programmable ("favorites") channels.
Equipped with memory retention, the radio logs up to 10 distress calls and 20 individual DSC calls. DSC control keys include (priority) 16/9, WX, 3CH/+/- for quick channel changing, CALL, EXIT, SCAN, and MENU. Additional system features include a rotary volume control with power on/off, all-channel priority and memory channel scans, 20 user-programmable names with MMSI, 10 weather channels with a 1050 Hz tone alert, and a second receiver for incoming DSC messages on Channel 70.
Offering selectable 25/1-watt transmit power and NMEA 0183 compatibility, the Link-5 radio includes a flush-mount kit, wires for 4-watt external speakers, a PL259 connection for optional 2.4 m and 1 m fiberglass antennas.

Q:whatdoes DSC mean?Asked on 2/9/2015 by Randy from Conover,N.C.
A:Thank you for your question.
DSC stands for : Digital Selective Calling. DSC is a contact system that uses data signals to automate the transmission and reception of calls on VHF marine radio channel 70 during an emergency. This constant paging of data allows you to step away from the radio during an emergency and allow the radio to constantly broadcast your vessel information (MMSI# and Lat/Long).Answered on 2/10/2015 by Anonymous
