MATRIX GX2000 (Black Only) – Fixed Mount Class D DSC VHF with AIS input, 30W PA/Hailer and RAM3 mic option

The MATRIX is capable of being connected to an optional AIS receiver or transponder to display AIS target vessels directly on the VHF radio’s display using the dedicated AIS key. When connected to an AIS device the GX2000 will display AIS target information (MMSI, Call Sign, Ship Name, BRG, DST, SOG and COG) allow you to contact an AIS Ship directly using DSC, show your vessels position in relation to AIS targets and alert you when an AIS ship may be approaching too close to your location via the Closest Point of Approach (CPA) Alarm. The GX2000 features an 80db commercial grade receiver with local/Distance attenuator and a Class D DSC dedicated channel 70 receiver (continuously watching for DSC calls) as well as a powerful 30 Watt PA/Loud Hailer with preprogrammed fog signals. Other great features include; die-cast chassis for durability, user-changeable channel names, optional voice scrambler, ClearVoice noise canceling speaker microphone, 4.5 Watt audio output, NOAA Weather Alert, Programmable Scan, Priority Scan and Dual Watch. The GX2000 is also capable of entering and saving up to 100 waypoints, which may be selected and navigated to by using a unique navigation compass display which shows your vessels SOG, COG, BRG (Bearing) and DST (Distance) to the waypoint. The GX2000 is capable of being connected to a RAM3 Remote Access Microphone, allowing control of all VHF, DSC and hailer functions remotely as well as adding an intercom between the radio and second station microphone. Another unique feature is the ability of the GX2000 to “poll” (request and send) the GPS location of another vessel and show that vessel’s position on the radio’s alphanumeric display. When connected to a compatible GPS chart plotter, the GX2000 allows the position of the polled vessel to be shown on the chart plotters display. This is a great feature for maintaining contact with fishing or cruising “buddy” boats. The MATRIX is backed by an industry leading 3-year waterproof warranty.
