Using the Hailer Function

Before you can use the hailer function, you must install a hailer horn (optional). For more information, see the VHF 315 Series Installation Instructions.

A hailer horn allows you to make on-boat or ship-to-shore announcements, and allows two-way communications between connected radios. You can address the ship using the radio or handset, and sounds received through the horn can be heard through the radio speaker. For vessels with enclosed cabins, the hailer horn allows you to hear sounds from the deck.

NOTE: When the radio is in hailer mode, it does not receive broadcasts from the active channel.
  1. Select PA > HAILER.

    Sounds received through the horn are heard through the radio speaker.

  2. Hold PTT.
  3. Select an option:
    • To make an announcement, speak into the handset.

    • To adjust the volume of the hailer broadcast, turn the ENTER dial.

  4. Release PTT to stop broadcasting and listen for broadcasts from other connected radios on the ship.
