This great value radio couples a compact, robust and functional design with a generous range of features, advanced technology and an exceptional price. It’s an ideal choice for the technically challenged, or those seeking an affordable, high performance marine radio.
TTI have created the TX-150 by combining their many years experience producing popular, high quality consumer radios with their in-depth knowledge of commercial two-way radios. As a result, their first marine portable couples a compact, robust and functional design with a generous range of features, advanced technology and an exceptional price!
A focus on user-friendliness is immediately apparent - the large illuminated display takes up almost a third of the front panel and keeps the user fully informed of the channel in use and the radio status, including battery level. Directly under this is a well-spaced backlit keypad which provides intuitive access to the TX-150’s many functions. Dedicated buttons are provided for Channel 16, Channel Up and Down, Menu access, Dual and Triple watch, channel scan, adjustable squelch and the keypad lock whilst a traditional volume control knob allows precise volume adjustment and a re-assuring on/off “click”.
Although the TX-150 is one of the most compact marine VHF portables available, it still offers many features that are not found in similarly sized or priced products: 2 power levels - a generous 4 watts of power is available for long range communication, whilst a lower power setting helps to extend battery life; dual-watch; triple(tri)-watch; priority channel scan; full channel scan; keypad lock; power-save for prolonged battery life between charges and an adjustable squelch - to ensure that even the weakest signals are detected.
A high-capacity Li-ION rechargeable battery is supplied with the TX-150. Not only does this provide a full-days use between charges, but the intelligent desk charger means it can be safely charged in around 4 hours without risk of memory effect or battery damage. The intelligent desk charger can also charge the battery on it’s own and alerts the user when it is fully charged and ready for use. For onboard charging, a DC charge lead is available as an option.
An accessory socket allows the use of a wide selection of audio accessories - ideal for convenient and simple use whilst the radio is inside a jacket, secured on a belt or resting on the chart table. A waterproof case, neck lanyard and a carry case (with belt clip) are also supplied in the box.
The TX-150 is available now and appeals to a very wide audience - from the value conscious to the technically challenged and anyone seeking an affordable, high performance, marine handheld. It’s an ideal gift too!
