Ray55E offers easy-to-use rotary controls for volume, squelch and menu operation and an extra large LCD display with dual channel mode that displays both the active and standby channel simultaneously.

The Ray55E is also expandable to two stations using the optional Raymic Full Function Handset (sold separately.)

Ray55E features Class D digital select calling with a built-in DSC distress key for one touch digital broadcast of your boat's GPS position and digital mayday. Ray55E also makes sure you'll hear and be heard, loud and clear with 25 watts of transmitter power, a superior receiver with excellent noise rejection, and best-in-class audio output and a standard external speaker connection. Watch modes as well as programmable scanning are all included.

The Ray55E VHF Radio kit includes radio, microphone, sun cover, yoke mounting bracket, power/speaker/data cable, mounting hardware and instructions. An optional in-dash flush mounting kit is available separately.
