Raymarine Ray70 Multifunction VHF Radio

Hear, be heard and be seen! The new Ray70 from Raymarine is the ultimate all-in-one communications solution for Captains who demand the very best. The multifunction Ray70 VHF comes as standard with a full-function VHF radio, AIS receiver, Loudhailer output, and is dual-station and intercom capable too!

Premium, all-in-one communications solution

The Ray70 starts with a powerful, 25W VHF radio with a detachable, noise-cancelling fist-mic and premium audio. Standard VHF features include hi/lo power selection, dual-watch, tri-watch, NOAA Weather Alert, channel scanning, and more. Of course, Ray70 supports Class D Digital Selective Calling and integrates seamlessly with Raymarine multifunction displays thanks to its standard NMEA2000 and NMEA0183 Networking.

Built-in GPS
Ray70 also features a built-in 72 channel GPS receiver ensuring you'll always have a position fix for emergency calls.

Built-in AIS
The Ray70’s integral Automatic Identification System (AIS) receiver simplifies installation and delivers critical vessel traffic information to compatible navigation displays.

Built-in Loudhailer
For communications on-deck and in noisy environments, the Ray70 also has a built-in 25W loudhailer output with listen-back capability. This makes it simple to interact with crew on deck, on the dock or with nearby vessels. Simply connect the Ray70 to Raymarine's optional weatherproof hailing horn. In inclement weather you can also use the Ray70's loudhailer to generate fog signals for vessels underway or at anchor as required by the nautical rules-of-the-road.
