Based on the same foundation of high reliability, ease of use and leading-edge functionality that has positioned SAILOR as the leading product in maritime communications, the SAILOR 6300 MF/HF DSC Class A offers much more than just a way to meet mandatory GMDSS require-ments. In addition to being part of the innovative SAILOR 6000 GMDSS series, it is an integral part of a vessels communication system and a crucial tool when in distress and rugged, reliable, easy to use communications are a must.

The SAILOR 6300 MF/HF provides several unique features such as message replay functionality, and the ability to connect two control units. A highly efficient power amplifier with control hardware ensures high performance and reliable communi-cation in the marine bands from 1.6 to 30 MHz, and ensures constant and full output power on all ITU channels.

  • SAILOR Replay – 240 seconds
  • High quality graphical display – perfect  night and day vision
  • 6W internal loudspeaker for excellent  sound quality
  • Improved, intuitive and easy to operate menu structure
  • Unique, next generation radiotelex   software
  • Multiple control units
  • 150W-250W-500W versions  ThraneLINK
  • Tune cache. Fast tuning to frequencies  previously used

More than GMDSS

The new SAILOR 6300 MF/HF is a high-end communications system in its own right. It complies with the requirement for MF/HF DSC Class A, which is part of the mandatory requirements for SOLAS ves-sels in all sea areas, and many national GMDSS requirements. It is developed and designed to meet the needs of profes-sional mariners ensuring clear and power-ful communication for a wide variety of vessels including high seas fishing vessels, merchant/offshore ships and workboats.

Instead of connecting the SAILOR 6300 MF/HF to an external GPS, the GPS input can be taken from the SAILOR 6110 mini-C GMDSS or other network gps. Therefore, no additional cabling apart from LAN is needed.

New Connections

SAILOR 6300 MF/HF can be quickly and easily connected to other critical GMDSS systems such as the SAILOR 6103 Alarm Panel. SAILOR 6300 MF/HF features the new, user-friendly radiotelex software with a state-of-art user-interface that works in combination with the new SAILOR 6006 Message Terminal. External loudspeakers, keyboards and printers can also be added easily.
