Touch display

As of February 2019 the JHS-800S is the world’s first Class A marine VHF radio-telephone featuring a 5-inch high-brightness color LCD touch screen, which makes it an outstanding innovative design.

The backlights of the LCD screen with a wide viewing angle and the operation buttons are fully adjustable, preventing interference while keeping night watch.


The JHS-800S even has a Bluetooth®*1 interface for connecting to an external wireless speaker mic (option).
*1: The call distance is up to 10 m. Our test calues are not guaranteed values.

The JHS-800S channel settings and DSC calls can be operated remotely from the JRC MFD*2. While watching the MFD, you can talk on a location away from the JHS-800S equipment, using a wireless speaker mic
*2: Supported by JAN-9201/7201 and JMR-9200/7200 series.

Voice recording

The received voice recording (up to 8 minutes) and playback function enables later confirmation or temporary saving of communications.


The digital audio amplifiers, equalizer function for deep-normal-high voice, specially designed speakers and new handset offer superior sound quality. A remote standalone microphone and pedalswitch can be connected to via a junctionbox. It is possible to operate the VHF with optional controllers up to 100 m away from the bridge.
