Entel Radios vs. Motorola / Standard Horizon / Sailor / Vertex / ICOM Radios

Posted by Rachel Low on

As shipping regulation tightens, finding a marine radio that meets all the strict marine safety guidelines AND is affordable can be challenging. 

Thankfully, Entel's marine radios tick all these boxes!

Entel's commercial grade marine portables have MIL-STD 810/C/D/E&F construction and IP68 submersibility, and are designed to withstand the everyday rigours of marine environments. With Intrinsically Safe (ATEX IIA, ATEX IIC, IECEx) and Non Intrinsically Safe options available at low prices, Entel is the ideal choice for marine walkie talkies!

While there are other high quality suppliers available out there (Motorola / Standard Horizon / Sailor / ICOM), they may not be available at the same price point or offer the same standard of quality as Entel.

To help, we've created a table to identify which Entel radios can be considered as an alternative to the existing radios out there!
