3. ONLINE WARRANTY REGISTRATION
Please visit www.standardhorizon.com - Owner’s Corner to register the
HX210 Marine VHF.
NOTE: visiting the STANDARD HORIZON website from time to time may be beneficial. When new products are released, information will appear on the website.
4. ABOUT THIS RADIO
4.1 ABOUT THE VHF MARINE BAND
The radio frequencies used in the VHF marine band lie between 156 and
158 MHz with NOAA Weather stations available between 161 and 163 MHz.
The marine VHF band provides communications over distances that are
essentially “Line of sight” Actual transmission range depends much more
on antenna type, gain and height than on the power output of the transmitter. On a fixed mount 25 W radio transmission expected distances can be
greater than 15 miles, for a portable 5 W radio transmission the expected
distance can be greater than 5 miles in “Line of sight”.
The user of a Marine VHF radio is subject to severe fines if the radio is used
on land. The reasoning for this is you may be near an inland waterway, or
propagation anomalies may cause your transmission to be heard in a waterway. If this occurs, depending upon the marine VHF channel on which
you are transmitting, you could interfere with a search and rescue case, or
contribute to a collision between passing ships. For VHF Marine channel assignments refer to section “12. VHF MARINE CHANNEL ASSIGNMENTS”.
WARNING
This radio is capable of transmitting on Marine VHF radio frequencies.
The FCC allows the use of VHF Marine band on water areas only. Use of the
VHF Marine band when on land is not permitted. If persons use the VHF Marine
Band on land and interfere with other communications, the FCC will be notified
and search for the interference. Responsible parties found to be transmitting on
the VHF Marine Band on land could be fined up to $10,000 for the first offense.
4.2 ABOUT WATER PROTECTION
The HX210 is only submersible* when the MIC/SP cap is installed in the
MIC/SP jack.
*(IPX7 Specification for submersibility: 3 ft. (1 m) for 30 minutes)
4.3 DISTRESS AND HAILING (CHANNEL 16)
Channel 16 is designated as the Hail and Distress Channel. An emergency may
be defined as a threat to life or property. In such instances, be sure the transceiver is turned ON, and set to “Channel 16”. Then use the following procedure:
Page 4
1. Press the PTT (Push-To-Talk) switch and say “Mayday, Mayday, Mayday. This is _____, _____, _____” (your vessel’s name).
2. Then repeat once: “Mayday, _____” (your vessel’s name).
3. Now report your position in latitude/longitude, or by giving a true or magnetic bearing (state which) to a well-known landmark such as a navigation aid or geographic feature such as an island or harbor entry.
4. Explain the nature of your distress (sinking, collision, aground, fire, heart
attack, life-threatening injury, etc.).
5. State the kind of assistance you desire (pumps, medical aid, etc.).
6. Report the number of persons aboard and condition of any injured.
7. Estimate the present seaworthiness and condition of your vessel.
8. Give your vessel’s description: length, design (power or sail), color and
other distinguishing marks. The total transmission should not exceed 1
minute.
9. End the message by saying “OVER”. Release the PTT switch and listen.
10. If there is no answer, repeat the above procedure. If there is still no response, try another channel.
4.4 CALLING ANOTHER VESSEL (CHANNEL 16 OR 9)
Channel 16 may be used for initial contact (hailing) with another vessel.
However, its most important use is for emergency messages. This channel
must be monitored at all times except when actually using another channel.
It is monitored by the U.S. and Canadian Coast Guards and by other vessels. Use of channel 16 for hailing must be limited to initial contact only. Calling should not exceed 30 seconds, but may be repeated 3 times at 2-minute
intervals. In areas of heavy radio traffic, congestion on channel 16 resulting
from its use as a hailing channel can be reduced significantly in U.S. waters
by using Channel 9 as the initial contact (hailing) channel for non-emergency
communications. Here, also, calling time should not exceed 30 seconds but
may be repeated 3 times at 2-minute intervals.
Prior to making contact with another vessel, refer to the channel charts in this
manual, and select an appropriate channel for communications after initial
contact. For example, Channels 68 and 69 of the U.S. VHF Charts are some
of the channels available to non-commercial (recreational) boaters. Monitor
your desired channel in advance to make sure you will not be interrupting
other traffic, and then go back to either channel 16 or 9 for your initial contact.
When the hailing channel (16 or 9) is clear, state the name of the other vessel you wish to call and then “this is” followed by the name of your vessel
and your Station License (Call Sign). When the other vessel returns your
call, immediately request another channel by saying “go to”, the number of
the other channel, and “over”. Then switch to the new channel. When the
new channel is not busy, call the other vessel.
Page 5
After a transmission, say “over”, and release the PTT (Push-To-Talk) switch.
When all communication with the other vessel is completed, end the last
transmission by stating your Call Sign and the word “out”. Note that it is not
necessary to state your Call Sign with each transmission, only at the beginning and end of the contact.
Remember to return to Channel 16 when not using another channel. Some
radios automatically monitor Channel 16 even when set to other channels or
when scanning.
4.5 BRIDGE CHANNELS 13 AND 67
Channel 13 is used at docks, bridges and by vessels maneuvering in port.
Messages on this channel must concern navigation only, such as meeting
and passing in restricted waters.
Channel 67 is used for navigational traffic between vessels.
By regulation, power is normally limited to 1 Watt on these channels. Your
radio is programmed to automatically reduce power to this limit on these
channels. However, in certain situations it may be necessary to temporarily
use a higher power. See page 14 for means to temporarily override the lowpower limit on these two channels.
4.6 SIMPLEX/DUPLEX CHANNEL USE
Refer to the section “12. VHF MARINE CHANNEL ASSIGNMENTS” for instructions on use of simplex and duplex channels.
NOTE
All channels are factory-programmed in accordance with FCC (USA),
ISED (Canada) and International regulations. The mode of operation
cannot be altered from simplex to duplex or vice-versa. Simplex (ship to
ship) or duplex (marine operator) mode is automatically activated, depending on the channel and whether the USA, International or Canadian
operating band is selected.
4.7 AUTOMATED RADIO CHECK SERVICE (in the USA only)
In areas across the United States, Sea Tow offers boaters a way to conduct
radio checks. To use Sea Tow’s free Automated Radio Check service, simply
tune your VHF radio to the appropriate channel for your location and conduct
a radio check as you typically would. Upon releasing your radio’s microphone, the system will play an automated message and relay your transmission back to you, thereby letting you know how your signal will sound to
other boaters.
The Automated Radio Check Service is currently available in the areas listed below.

15. RF EXPOSURE SAFETY STATEMENT
15.1 SAFETY INFORMATION
Your wireless handheld portable transceiver contains a low power transmitter.
When the Push-to-Talk (PTT) button is pushed, the transceiver sends out radio
frequency (RF) signals. In August 1996, the Federal Communications Commission adopted RF exposure guidelines with safety levels for hand-held wireless
devices.
This device is authorized to operate at a duty factor not to exceed 50% (this corresponds to 50% transmission time and 50% reception time).
WARNING: To maintain compliance with the FCC’s RF exposure guidelines,
this transmitter and its antenna must maintain a separation distance of at least 1
inch (2.5 centimeters) from your face. Speak in a normal voice, with the antenna
pointed up and away from the face at the required separation distance.
Use only the supplied antenna. Unauthorized antennas, modifications, or attachments could damage the transmitter, and may violate FCC regulations.
15.2 CONSIGNES DE SECURITE
Votre émetteur-récepteur portatif sans filcontient un émetteur à faible puissance.
Lorsque vous appuyez sur le bouton Push-to-Talk (PTT), l’émetteur-récepteur
émet des signaux de radiofréquence (RF). En août 1996, la FCC (Commission
Fédérale des Communications) a adopté des directives relatives à l’exposition
aux RF avec des niveaux de sécurité pour les appareils sans fil portatifs. Le
fonctionnement de cet appareil est autorisé à un facteur d’utilisation ne dépassant pas 50 % (correspondant à 50% de la durée de transmission et 50% de la
durée de réception).
AVERTISSEMENT: Pour assurer la conformité avec les directives d’exposition
RF de la FCC, cet émetteur-récepteur et son antenne doivent être maintenus à
une distance minimum d’un pouce (2,5 centimètre) de votre visage. Parlez avec
une voix normale, avec l’antenne dirigée vers le haut et éloignée du visage, à la
distance requise. Si vous utilisez un casque pour cette radio, et que vous portez
la radio sur vous, utilisez exclusivement le clip de ceinture Yaesu pour cet émetteur-récepteur, et assurez-vous que l’antenne se trouve à une distance minimum
d’un pouce (2,5 centimètres) de votre corps pendant l’émission. Utilisez exclusivement l’antenne fournie. Les antennes, les modificationsou les accessoires
non autorisés peuvent endommager l’émetteur-récepteur et enfreindre les réglementations FCC.
