SSE Increases New Yard

Intrinsically I safe.

If all you want in a marine hand- held VHF is portability, maybe the Horizon HX220AS is too good.

Sure it meets the industry guidelines for explosive environ- ment applications. But it also has the punch you get from six watts of transmitting power, full-on microprocessor control, gold bat- tery contacts for reliability, gen- erous moisture protection, and careful, intelligent engineering.

It receives all U.S., Canadian and international channels as well as 10 weather channels, and can be programmed to scan any number or combination of them automatically.

One-touch channel selection as well as direct access to chan- nel 16 and the weather channels is so easy it can be done in heavy gloves. The LCD display is over- sized and backlit. And options like the external speaker/micro- phone which allows hands-free operation make it ideal for tank- ers, tenders and oil rigs.

The HX220AS is a lot of radio in a remarkably small and light- weight package. To find out more about it, or about Stan- dard's intrinsically-safe eight- channel HX340 UHF and VHF handhelds, call or write today.

Just to be on the safe side.

Nothing takes to water like Horizon.
