VHF Radio (JHS-770-780)


Available as semi-duplex or full-duplex, this class A VHF radiotelephone incorporates advanced modular design that allows for maximum installation flexibility.

Direct call by AIS™
When connecting your AIS to the new VHF, new possibilities become available. This innovative feature, unique to JRC, allows you with one push of the button, to quickly navigate through a list of targets in your surrounding area. Bearing, range and MMSI information of target vessels are sorted from the shortest range upwards. You can now easily select the vessel you wish to get in contact with, and send a DSC message immediately.

Clear display
The integrated 3.8-inch high brightness silver LCD screen realizes improved visibility with excellent sunlight viewability. The main data is displayed in large characters for easy reading.

Wing controller
For wing and/or outside applications, JRC has developed an optional, simplified channel selector. This compact weatherproof unit allows basic operation, such as channel and power selection, and has a channel 16 preset.

Intercom and loudhailer
The VHF radiotelephone has intercom functionality for easy communication with multiple other VHF controllers onboard! Additionally, to always be in full control and on top of communication with deck or dockhands, a loudhailer function is built in. An optional external speaker with amplifier increases talk power, making your messaging loud and clear, thereby adding to the safety of the vessel.

Extendable up to 5 controllers
The VHF series configuration allows having up to 5 controllers covering various important sections onboard. Additionally, there is a range of possibilities for connecting extra handsets and printers.

120 seconds digital recording
JRC has included a recording function for the last 120 seconds of open squelch (voice). In situations where loud engines or other background noises disrupt your reception, this characteristic feature enables you to immediately repeat any unclear messages.

Easy operation
The combination of push buttons and JOG dial operation, together with JRC’s innovative software including easy menu structures ensures logical, accurate and convenient operation.

Easy configuration
The JHS-770S/780D is developed upon maximum flexibility, having a separate transceiver and controller allowing flexible installation in confined spaces. Panel, desktop or overhead mounting is possible with this size reduced VHF radiotelephone.
