The GX1300 Eclipse is an affordable ultra-compact ITU-R M.493-13 Class D VHF radio that has been re-engineered to meet the IPX8 submersible waterproof rating of 4.92 feet for 30 minutes, redesigned with a new Easy to Operate Icon/Menu System featuring an oversized full dot matrix LCD (31 mm x 55 mm) to increase the size of the channels and navigation information (when interfaced with a GPS receiver) displayed. Simple installation, the radio’s rear chassis has also been reduced to 5.9" deep for greater mounting flexibility in tight spaces.
