The VHF Sailor RT-2048 VHF that has been in the market since 1987 and of which more than 100,000 units have been sold, is reaching its end of life. Radio Holland, Sailor distributor in The Netherlands and several other countries around the world, introduces its successor, the Sailor RT-6248 VHF, which will become available in the second half of this year. The Sailor 6248 VHF will include all the well-known, reliable features of the Sailor RT-2048, and more. This non-class VHF is based upon the new Sailor 6222 VHF DSC Class A. Amongst others, the Sailor 6248 will include both the Sailor Replay function and the LAN option for ThraneLINK, a uniform communication protocol that connects all Sailor equipment in a network. The Sailor 6248 will be a solid, innovative replacement for the highly regarded Sailor RT-2048 VHF.
