This second hand Marine HF Transceiver is fully functional and ideal for any vessel that needs to obtain Category 1 certification for going offshore.
This M800 unit was originally installed on a commercial helicopter. As such, when I purchased this unit from the associated helicopter company, the individual Remote Controllers case had been cut down to make it more compact for the helicopters instrument panel. It had also been modified to accommodate a headset microphone and earphones. Although the Remote Controller remains in its compact form, it has since been restored to a more original state using a Tait microphone and Tait external speaker.
A Weather Fax output has also been fitted for use with a weather fax decoder and laptop computer.
I have recently had an operation check performed by an independent agent to ensure the M800 and AT-120 are working correctly - see photos.
As far as I know, the helicopter was the only situation in which this M800 was installed. Therefore it is unlikely that is has been subjected to the harsh atmospheric conditions typical of a boat or yacht.
Although the M800 and AT-120 have since been superceeded by the M802 and AT-140 (currently retailing for about $3999), it still possesses an advanced microprocessor based technology as outlined in the following features:

# 127 user-progammable microprocessor based memory channels that allow easy personalised frequency selection. This means:
NO adding or changing of crystals is required.
NO sending the unit to the dealer to have channels programmed.

# 433 pre-programmed ITU channels.

# Transmits on all HF marine bands.

# Continuous coverage receiver - 0.5 to 30 MHz.

# 150 Watt RF output power.

# Separate Remote Controller Head and Transceiver Base Unit connected by optical fibre cable.

# AT-120 Automatic Antenna Unit.

# Instruction manuals.

# Emergency antenna.
