Product details

A Modular System to Fit Any Boat
The RS90 is a modular VHF system that’s expandable and customisable to suit any boat and any on-water communication needs. One wired handset is included, but a single RS90 system can run up to six separate stations: four wired, and two wireless. Multiple stations can be used as a vessel-wide intercom system, keeping crewmembers in contact wherever they are on board.

Designed for Clear Communication
This Class D DSC approved radio can make and receive DSC distress signals including your current position, and supports direct calling to other DSC-equipped radios. Dual-channel watch lets you monitor the current channel and emergency channel 16 (in the USA, tri-channel watch monitors the current channel, emergency channel 16, and calling channel 9). A record and replay feature helps to ensure you never miss an important call. One external speaker is included; outputs are provided for up to four speakers, and one optional loudhailer/foghorn.

Integrated AIS Receiver
A built-in AIS receiver lets you monitor the position of nearby AIS-equipped vessels, perfect for avoiding collisions in crowded harbours and busy waterways. AIS information can be viewed on a handset or a compatible Simrad multifunction display. The RS35 uses the same antenna for both VHF and AIS, simplifying installation and minimising wiring. AIS data is output over an industry-standard NMEA 2000® connection.

Minimum product requirements

Requires a VHF antenna (sold separately). Some functions require a compatible GPS receiver. All DSC functions require an MMSI number issued by local authorities; charges may apply. Hailer and foghorn functions require an optional loudspeaker.
