Bluetooth VHF headset, coming soon
Standard Horizon plans to introduce this Bluetooth wireless VHF headset some time this winter (plus a VHF/GPS handheld). There isn’t a brochure or web link yet but these are the specs I recall: waterproof, 150 foot range, can be used either voice-activated (VOX) or push-to-talk (PTT), will sell for around $150, and will fit many S.H. radios.
Product Manager Scott Iverson also modeled the headset for me, seen below, and I’d guess that the VOX could work pretty well with the mic so close to your mouth. That I noticed, but the nifty composition of Scott’s own dome echoed by the JRC Sat Compass and SeaTel VSAT domes beyond was pure Electronics Tent photo luck. Thanks, Scott!
