SAILOR SP3300
Operation Manual
Introduction
The SAILOR Portable VHF SP3300 is
approved to fulfil the GMDSS requirements
for portable VHF radios for Safety at Sea
and is waterproof to IP67 standard.
As part of the required safety equipment, the
SAILOR SP3300 is to be used in an
emergency situation. However, the best way
to guarantee functionality in an emergency,
is to use the radio in the daily communication onboard.
This is possible due to a unique battery
concept. The primary emergency battery is
to be stored for emergency situations and a
secondary rechargeable battery can be
used for daily communication. In this way
you have at least 8 hours operation time.
The range of maritime communication
products from SAILOR includes radios for
the leisure market to equipment for fishing
vessels and complete communication
solutions for the deep sea sector. Everything
is covered from basic VHF units to state-ofthe-art satellite systems, Ship Security Alert
Systems and complete compact GMDSS
solutions. Please find your nearest SAILOR
distributor on: www.sailor.dk
SAILOR operate a policy of continual
development and reserve the right to alter
and improve the specification of our
products without notice.
Thank you for choosing SAILOR.

Warranty Limitation
IMPORTANT - The radio is a sealed waterproof unit. To create and maintain its waterproof
integrity it was assembled in a controlled environment using special equipment. The radio is
not a user maintainable unit, and UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES should the unit be opened,
except by authorised personnel. Unauthorised opening of the unit will invalidate the warranty.

Note that the PTT key will still function when
the keypad lock is on, allowing transmission
and receiving as normal.
Removing and
Attaching Battery
Battery pack removal
The radio has two battery options - an
850mAh NiCa or a non rechargeable Lithium
battery that is capable of providing sufficient
power for the specified 8 hours according to
regulations.
To remove the battery, lift the two locking
clips holding the battery pack in place. When
reattaching, ensure the three locating pegs
on the top of the battery are located into the
slots in the radio and that the two locking
clips have both engaged.
The set is fully waterproof even with the
battery removed, but it is recommended that
any moisture on the top of the battery or in
the battery compartment is wiped clear
before attaching to prevent the water
creating a conductive path between the
contacts and reducing battery life.
Charger Options
Battery charger
0451
The radio can be supplied with a 12V
standard charger that will accept the whole
radio, or the battery alone. The standard
charger runs from a standard 12V supply
(10.5V-16V), or from AC mains with an
appropriate optional adapter / power supply.
Charging with the standard charger takes
approximately 14-16 hours. There is also a
fast charger available which will charge the
battery within 1 1/2 hours.
5
Charging of Batteries
To charge the NiCa battery pack, insert the
battery or radio into the charger ensuring
that excess moisture is wiped clear from the
contacts on the back of the battery pack.
The standard charger will trickle charge the
battery to full capacity. The fast charger will
rapid charge the battery until it is fully
charged and will then automatically switch to
maintenance charge.
•
Batteries are supplied uncharged.
•
Fully charge the battery when not in
use, although it may lose some of its
charge after several months of storage.
•
Do not charge at temperatures below
0°C or above 40°C.
•
Turn off radio if charging battery while
fitted.
•
Regularly discharge the battery
completely - repeated recharging of the
battery while it is partly discharged may
create a ‘memory effect’, preventing the
battery reaching full charge.
•
Dispose of used batteries carefully. The
contents of the batteries could be
harmful to the environment.
•
Never expose to a naked flame.
•
IMPORTANT: The Lithium battery is
not rechargeable, and under no
circumstances should any attempt be
made to recharge it. Replacement
lithium batteries can be re-ordered
from your local reseller.
Charging options
Battery Level Indicator
Except when adjusting the Volume or
Squelch, the bar graph on the display shows
the battery charge level. This indicates the
voltage at the battery terminals, not
necessarily the charge stored. Ten or nine
bars indicate a fully charged battery, three
or four bars mean the battery is almost
drained.
6
Battery level indicator
•
When using a lithium battery pack, the
low level battery indicator may flash
under transmit conditions. This does not
necessarily reflect the charge level
remaining in the battery, as it is due to
the different voltage characteristics of a
Lithium battery pack under load.
0438
General
Antenna
Transmission Range
The antenna for the radio is fitted to the unit
via a robust screw fitting to an M6 threaded
socket on the top of the radio. This system is
more rugged than a traditional BNC
connector, so the radio’s drop-proof integrity
is not compromised by the antenna fixing.
Because VHF signals travel in a straight line
and are not reflected back off the ionosphere as lower frequency signals are, the
range of VHF signals is limited to ‘line of
sight’, beyond which the other vessel
passes behind the curve of the Earth.
Therefore, the range will increase greatly the
higher above sea level the antenna is, as
illustrated (assuming maximum transmission
power is used):
While the radio is drop-proof and very
robust, damage to the antenna such as
bending or kinking may adversely affect the
transmission efficiency of the unit, which
may lead to overloading of the power
module. Damaged antenna should be
replaced immediately.

Therefore, the typical range of a hand-held
radio such as this one used at sea level will
be approximately 8 Km (5 Miles). This will
increase as height above sea level increases, or if the other radio user’s antenna
is at a greater height - note that the range
between the yacht with the antenna
mounted on a 9 M (30 Ft) mast and the
hand-held user increases to 13-16 Km (8-10
Miles).

Battery Life Guidelines
•
New batteries should be fully charged
and fully discharged several times to
achieve full capacity.
To a large extent, the battery life will depend
on the usage, or Duty Cycle of the radio - i.e.
the battery will be drained much quicker if
the radio is transmitting continually than if it
is just receiving. Additionally, if the radio is
set to High Power (2.5Watts*), the power
drain will be considerably greater than if
transmitting on Low Power (1Watt*)
* Standard power settings.
