Your radio is telling you that it is getting a low voltage from the 12V battery IN THE BOAT. This could be because it is flat, or because the wiring has an issue.
The fact that this warning appears when you key the mike, which is the only time the radio uses any real power, suggests that you have an issue with a voltage drop in the wiring. Got an inline fuse holder? Check for corrosion in the connections.
Do you have a voltmeter?
PS, got a 9-month-old Standard Horizon Eclipse DSC+, GX1150, here in a box. It just got back from SH, where it was having the MMSI no. deleted. Make me an offer!
PPS, Standard Horizon's customer service has been outstanding.
