The Garmin GHS 20 Wireless VHF Handset allows full control of your VHF 200, 300, or 300 AIS series radio from a remote location.
A 16/9 softkey automates distress calling while a large rechargeable lithium-ion battery provides a quicker charge and longer range.
For full wireless capability, a GWH 20 wireless hub is required (the radio only supports 1 GWH 20). We offer a bundled version of the GHS 20 with the GWH 20. The GWH 20 provides intercom capability with the base station and supports up to 3 GHS 20 handsets onboard.
*A software update may be required before you can use the GHS 20 with your VHF radio

A new weather buoy in a remote part of Lake Superior is providing much-needed weather data to local mariners, the National Weather Service and researchers. Scientists from the Superior Watershed Partnership (SWP), Lentic Environmental Services (LES) and the University of Colorado-Boulder recently deployed the buoy on the lake one mile north of Stannard Rock Lighthouse. SWP gained ownership of the lighthouse in 2015. Because the light was built on a large reef in a remote part of the lake, it is one of the most popular trout fishing and charter boat destinations on the Great Lakes. It has also been the location of a NOAA weather station since 1984 and a Great Lakes Evaporation Network monitoring site since 2008.Read More
For the first time, citizens of the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal have free access to local water data. The data is the result of a water quality monitoring pilot project started by the California-based nonprofit SmartPhones4Water (S4W). SmartPhones4Water, an idea developed by Ph.D. student Jeff Davids and the late Dr. Peter-Jules van Overloop from Delft University of Technology (Netherlands), was started in California in 2014. The goal of the organization is to leverage smartphone technology to gather water data in countries where such data is scarce. The method is simple: a network of local citizens use their smartphones to capture and upload the data to an online server and database.Read More
Celebrating its 25th year, Coosa River Basin Initiative is forming a new water monitoring partnership with the Berry College Environmental Science program. Coosa River Basin Initiative, also known as CRBI , is a grassroots environmental protection organization that works with volunteers to protect and preserve the Coosa River in Rome, Georgia and the surrounding cities. CRBI is a member of the Georgia Water Coalition and the Waterkeeper Alliance. You may be wondering what is so special about the Coosa River. The answer is just about everything.
