The Jotron VHF Coastal Radio is in use at hundreds of Ports and Coastal Stations worldwide for communication between ship to shore. Jotron have a reputation for building products to withstand harsh environmental conditions, which makes this radio the perfect solution for communication with offshore installations and vessels requiring high quality FM voice and Digital Selective Calling (DSC). The radios can be remotely controlled, making them easy to fit into an existing infrastructure for isolated un-manned locations.

Harbours and port authorities are enhancing navigational safety by using Jotron radios and recorders in their Vessel Traffic Service systems (VTS). The Jotron Ricochet recorders are integrated in Vessel Traffic Service systems for busy ports, as well as in the offshore Oil & Gas industry for all Helicopter flight operations. Jotron’s Ricochet captures, and instantly replays all analogue and data inputs. Where playback of real-time events can assist investigatory work - as well as search and rescue operations – and is a huge benefit to port administrators, port authorities, and coast guards for training and future safety improvements.
