Raymarine Ray260 VHF Radio
The Raymarine Ray260 VHF Radio packs top-of-the-line communications features into a compact, modular design that works with small and large vessels alike. The slimline handset has an extra-large LCD display and dedicated soft keys for easy control of features and functions. The powerful, remote-mounted speaker fits in tight locations, giving you flexibility in installation. Adjustable volume control ensures that you hear everything loud and clear. The Ray260 can support 2 additional handset/speakers (not included), giving you complete control from up to 3 locations onboard. Engineered to be your onboard communications hub, the Ray260 features a powerful 25-watt/1-watt, commercial-grade transceiver with Class D Digital Selective Calling. It also has built-in NOAA weather channels and weather alert, plus convenient dual-watch, tri-watch, and channel scanning features. Ray260's Digital Voicemail feature allows you to pre-record a voice message up to 15-seconds and automatically send it to another DSC-equipped vessel. You can also use it to record incoming voice messages or alerts up to 90 seconds long. Ray260's convenient position tracking feature allows you to simultaneously receive position reports from up to 5 nearby DSC-equipped vessels. Their positions are automatically fed over SeaTalkNG for display right on your MFD's chart display. This feature is perfect for keeping tabs of other boats in your cruising party, monitoring vessels of interest, or for local fleet management. For European inland waterways, the Ray260 also includes standard ATIS capability. Ray260's built-in loud-hailer will make you heard on deck and across the harbor. The hailer packs a punch with 30-watt output and 2-way talkback, so you can easily communicate with your on-deck crew in noisy conditions. The hailer also includes an automatic foghorn with built-in signals for both power and sailing vessels. The Ray260 easily integrates with other NMEA2000 (via the Raymarine SeaTalkNG cabling system) or NMEA0183 onboard electronic systems.
