High Visibility Display
See clearly in bright daylight with a high contrast black-on-white display. Night-time visibility has also been optimised, with an inverted white-on-black night mode to reduce light emission and preserve your night vision.
A rotary channel dial facilitates quick channel selection, while large and amply spaced buttons provide quick access to all key functions. Dedicated Channel 16 keys enable instant access to the emergency channel, and are included on both the radio’s front panel and its four-button fist mic.
Class D DSC Approved
An integrated Distress button allows automated DSC distress calling. DSC capabilities also enable direct calling to other DSC-equipped vessels from a B&G multifunction display, including direct calls to AIS targets (a compatible display and AIS receiver are required).
Tri-Channel Watch Function
Scan between the current channel, emergency channel 16, and another user-configurable priority channel (non US models). On US models, scan between the current channel and emergency channels 16 and 9.
All International Channels
The V20 is designed for global use and supports all international channels including USA and Canada.
My Channel Mode
Select your favourite channels for quick and easy access. A long press on the channel dial enters My Channel Mode, where you can cycle through just your selected favourites using the rotary channel dial.
Multiple Scan Modes
Scan through all available channels or just your selected favourites. In either scan mode, emergency channels can optionally be given priority to reduce the chance of missing distress calls or other urgent safety messages.
An included gimbal bracket enables table-top, overhead, or bulkhead installation.
