Keep on top of emergencies while staying in touch with other boaters with the Standard Horizon STD-HX370S handheld two-way VHF radio.

Standard Horizon HX370S
Standard Horizon HX370S Charger
When you're not using the 5-watt radio, simply drop it in the included charging cradle.
Made for Boaters

Specifically designed for marine use, the HX370S is factory programmed with all U.S., Canadian, and international marine channels, keeping you fully informed of all the latest oceanic activity. At the same time, the radio offers a host of weather channels from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association (NOAA), so you can learn about approaching storms or hurricanes well before they hit.

Land Mobile Radio

If the channels above aren't enough, the HX370s is also compatible with up to 40 commercial Land Mobile Radio (LMR) channels with CTCSS or DCS signaling, though a Standard Horizon dealer will need to program the channels (and users are responsible for obtaining the appropriate FCC license).

Waterproof Construction

As with any well-built marine radio, the HX370S is rugged and fully waterproof, with a compact design that can withstand submersion in 1 meter of water for 30 minutes.

Easy to Use

It's a breeze to browse through the channels using the scan function, either without priority (starting from lowest to highest) or while monitoring emergency channels 16 and 9 and the NOAA weather alert, which warns you of inclement conditions. Other operational details include a Preset key that easily recalls your eight most-used channels, an oversized LCD with channel names, and a high-intensity strobe light that emits the internally recognized S.O.S. signal during emergencies--a must for any boater. The S.O.S. beacon can be seen from up to 1 mile away.

Standard Horizon HX370S Battery Pack
Waterproof alkaline battery tray--a battery life indicator on the LCD warns you when batteries needs charging.
Stay Charged

When you're not using the 5-watt radio, simply drop it in the included charging cradle, which will keep the rechargeable NiMH battery operating at full capacity (the radio lasts for roughly 18 hours per charge). Also included is a waterproof alkaline battery tray, a 12-volt charger, and an AC charger. And because dead batteries can be a serious safety hazard on the water, the HX370S sports a battery life indicator on the LCD that warns you when the battery needs charging.

Also compatible with optional speaker microphones, headsets, and voice scramblers, the HX370S radio measures 2.3 by 3.7 by 1.2 inches (W x H x D) and is backed by a three-year warranty.

I am extremely happy with this unit and have no plans to replace it anytime soon.

This has a very nice solid feel to it, not the cheap feeling.

We have four of these handhelds where I work, on ocean-going tug/barge units. They're about 2 years old now and have taken a good hard licking through all four seasons, in every kind of precipitation imaginable, at least several hours of operation a day, being dropped at least once per use, and have held up great. The only problem I can tell is that the belt clip broke off on one after being dropped for the umpteenth time, and thats not very significant at all. We use the optional remote mics exclusively and they tend to send groggy transmissions when wet, but easily solved by a sandwich baggy and a rubber band. Have had to replace a few of those, again for their having been dropped one too many times, but thats another review. The button layout is pretty straight forward, any deckhand could decipher how to use it without problems. Button locking feature comes in handy, find that you will always inadvertently change something without it when slipping it into you back pocket. We don't really use any of the more indepth features, so I can't really comment on those, but from experience it is a workhorse in all kinds of weather even in drenching rain, pretty much akin to being submerged.

We have used Standard Horizon radios for over 10 years on 2 research vessels, starting with the HX255, with which we were very happy. We then switched to the 350S and found them very suitable as well. Unfortunately, with the HX370, there is a weak point in the transmit amplifier and it burns out regularly. I purchased 30 of these radios 2 years ago and have sent ALL of them back at least once for warranty repair. While I can't complain about the service because they have promptly repaired them and sent them back, they have done nothing to correct the problem. So I receive them, they get used and 4 to 6 months later they fail again. Big Hassle. I would not recommend this radio due to this issue. If you do have one you can turn down the transmit power and possibly avoid this problem, BUT why get a 5W radio if you can only use ~3W?

This radio was recommended by a co-worker who is into amateur radio and works around ships. I bought one for use on the water as well, and like the fact that it can take 40 user programmable channels. Note that programming requires a cable and software from Vertex/Standard Horizon. This is readily available and can be done by anyone with computer and radio skills. I like that it is a nice and heavy unit, with great battery life and large display. Unit will use most accessories from the VX-170 2 meter handheld. This includes the programming cable (also used on the VX-7R), microphones and battery packs. The antenna on this radio is short and does not get in the way. Great to have on small pleasure craft or for commercial use. Puts out enough power to be heard and has great audio. It would have got a fifth star from me if it didn't require software and a computer to program. I prefer full DTMF keypads and programming capability. Can't fault the easy to use layout though.

This radio is rugged and waterproof. It is easy to program* with 2 meter or other additional VHF frequencies. It can do repeater splits and tones. The battery lasts a long time. You can specify narrow bad FM to use this as a MURS radio, although it is technically illegal to do so. It can also do CAP and various public service frequencies. Note you need a computer to do this. There is no setting a frequency on the fly from the radio itself like you can with a ham rig. It comes with an alkaline battery tray accessory. Spare batteries are cheap.
That is the good.
The bad:
It seems far more prone to intermod than my Icom handheld. You have to turn the squelch way up in some locations. I totally HATE the swivel holder thing that goes on your belt. A major PITA to get the thing on and off. Also the radio has no wrist strap. I like to wear this radio while sailing as cheap insurance for going overboard and these things make it less useful and more likely to be dropped. I will likely invest in some kind of holster for it.

* You need the OFFICIAL software from Standard-Horizon. The numerous web references to various ham radio programs that should also work on this radio are WRONG. I got a kindly tech to email me the software for free by calling :)

I purchased this transceiver two years ago to replace an older horizon that I was happy with but that had experienced battery problems. This radio does everything well: audio quality is good, programming is straightforward, and the controls are intuitive. I routinely submerge the unit - I seakayak with it on my PFD and roll with it on in surf. Battery life is very good with both rechargeables and AA's. I've even used the LED flasher to signal friends (ok, it was a bit geeky, but it worked!)

I am extremely happy with this unit and have no plans to replace it anytime soon.

This radio is built tough. Very heavy but solid design and waterproof.
Easy to understand controls. I like this radio to monitor ship to shore.
Have not tried to transmit yet. But overall great radio.
