Practical Sailor Awards
Editors Choice - September 2009
Among the 10 new mid-priced fixed-mount VHFs we reviewed in the February 2009 issue, the Standard Horizon Matrix GX3000S ranked above the other $145 to $220 VHF radios.

Best Choice - February 2009
The Standard Horizon GX3000S is near the upper end of the price range,
but the added features outweigh the extra cost.
30W PA and Fog signalling
The MATRIX includes a 30W Loud Hailer with Fog signals; Bells and Whistles with listen back. For added benefit, the last selected VHF channel is can be heard when in the PA or Fog mode.
Commercial grade 80dB reciever
Advanced receiver technology rejects the reception of unwanted signals from pagers and other unwanted VHF frequencies
Audio tone control
This unique feature allows the treble and bass of the speaker audio to be adjusted for best listening. The effect is similar to adjusting the treble and bass controls on a stereo.
Big, bold display
There is no question about it. With a big, bold display there is no mistaking the information. The contrast and brightness can be adjusted for situations where the radio cannot be mounted directly in front of you.
Digital Selective Calling
The MATRIX is Class D class DSC VHF with a separate Channel 70 receiver, which allows DSC calls to be received even when listening to traffic on Marine VHF channels.

The DSC DISTRESS function when activated transmits a digital MAYDAY including vessel identification, Latitude / Longitude and time (with GPS connected), to facilitate prompt response. Additional calls that can be made are Individual, Urgency and Safety.
DSC Position Polling and NMEA in/output
Easily share position information with other DSC equipped vessels using the position request and position reporting functions. With the push of a few buttons you can request the position of another vessel, or simply send your position information to the vessel you select.

The GPS Position of a received DSC Distress or Position Request call can be shown on a compatible GPS Chart plotter simply by connecting 2 NMEA wires.
ClearVoice noise reduction technology
The MATRIX features Clear Voice Noise Reduction Technology eliminating unwanted background noises like engines and wind during transmission. This assures transmissions are crystal clear along with dedicated 16/9 key and channel selection.
Channel name and GPS repeating
All the information you need right at your fingertips. Customizable channel naming allows you to easily change the channel name for greater ease of use and better channel recognition. Position, date, and time are also displayed when interfaced with a GPS receiver.
Dual inputs for remote micophones
All of the features of the main radio (including DSC, PA, Fog signaling and listenback) can now be accessed through the optional RAM3 speaker microphone (CMP30) or VH-310 telephone style handset.

With a RAM3 or VH-310 connected, the MATRIX becomes an intercom system allowing two way private communications two and from the second station mic or between Second station mic to second station mic.
Oversized knobs and scanning
Radio operation and channel selection is made easy (even with gloves) with the oversized volume, squelch and channel selector knobs

The MATRIX has Dual Watch, which scans a selected channel and ch16 simultaneously allowing you to monitor a channel and not miss calls made on ch16. Scan and Priority Scan features are user programmable.
3-Year waterproof warranty
If the MATRIX fails for any reason (including water damage) during normal use for the first 3 years of ownership, STANDARD HORIZON will repair or replace it free, without hassles or charges. If it fails for anytime thereafter in normal use, for as long as the original purchaser owns the radio, STANDARD Horizon's Lifetime Flat Rate and Customer Loyalty Service Programs will cover it.
