Standard Horizon GX2320S

We're working our way through the boat, seeing what needs to be fixed, what needs to be replaced, (ref: my thread on replacing the outboard) and what just needs to be cleaned up and left alone. The VHF radio is the above mentioned Standard Horizon GX2320S. But I'm not sure if it's working properly, and there is no operators manual. No worries - due to the wonders of the internet, one is never more than a few keystrokes away from finding such a manual. At least that's what I thought. No luck so far. I went to the Standard Horizon website, and this model is not listed. Even in the archived manuals. So I contacted their customer service. No response. I hate it when that happens. If they don't have the courtesy to respond to requests, they should get out of the business.

Any help out there?

thanks,
Norm

Norm, contact Classic Radio Manuals Homepage, but my oppinion is, for a so simple radio, Operator's Manual will be of little help to troubleshoot your problem, unless it is a really simple one.

Hello,

IMHO, if you are going to add a gps system you might as well replace the VHF with a new one that supports DSC. They aren't expensive, you can get a nice Standard Horizon model for $100 - $150.

Thanks, negrini - I see that Classic Radio has the Manual. And thanks, Barry - I had planned on adding a GPS, so the right answer would probably to upgrade the radio too and get the DSC capability. But it will NOT be a Standard Horizon. I have contacted their customer support website twice, with no response. So, if this is how they value their customers, there is no way I would ever consider purchasing one of their products.
