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.
The Lowrance Link-5 VHF radio is protected by a 2-year limited warranty and supported for an additional three years by the Lowrance 5-Year Advantage Program.
