Submersible to IP68 (5 metres for 1 hour)
Entel is the first manufacturer to offer the superior IP68 specification, whereby we ourselves determine at what depth and for how long our equipment must remain waterproof. Not content with just the standard IP67 entry-level (1 metre for 30 minutes) Entel's IP68 HT series is certified as waterproof-submersible to an unprecedented depth of 5 metres for 60 minutes.
Aware that the smallest tolerances of case size and material variation alone could compromise your radio's waterproof integrity, uniquely, each individual Entel portable is tested on a custom-built air pressure test-jig to ensure it meets the exacting high standards we have set for ourselves.
Meeting MIL–STD 810C/D/E/F commercial grade construction for tough, enduring performance, the Entel's HT and HX series 2.0 portables conform to stringent standards, enabling them to withstand the everyday rigours of shock, vibration and the corrosive effects of dust and moisture, ensuring many years of trouble free use in the most hostile environments.
1800mAh Li–Ion battery
All Entel portables come with the latest intelligent Lithium–Ion battery technology as standard. Whichever model you choose, these batteries will count the number of completed charge cycles, which on LCD variants, if dealer enabled, can be displayed when you power-on your radio.
For your convenience it will even alert you to imminent battery life expiration. Another advantage of Lithium–Ion battery technology is the way it maximizes duty cycles, while the elimination of memory effect means there is no need to fully discharge the cells before recharging. Therefore you are assured a full duty cycle each and every time you take your radio from its charger.
Flash upgradeable to add future features
Entel proposes to continuously add/upgrade features to its range of radios. Using Flash Upgrade technology your radios can be upgraded by your Dealer at any time.
The entry HTx42 / HTx82 / HTx48 marine models all come with 16 channels. These can be any combination of INT, USA, CAN or private channels.
If more channels are needed, see the HTx83, HTx44 or HTx49 marine models.
In addition to any INT, USA or CAN channels, the radio can also be programmed with your choice of private VHF channels.
Robust accessory socket
A completely redesigned accessory connector, when secured to the portable, is designed to withstand any amount of punishment from dropping to careless misuse. Furthermore, the securing bolt incorporates a shearing point to protect the connector.
3-key entry model
For those users looking for an entry level portable with minimum functionality, the 3 key model is ideal.
Voice annunciation (option)
Speaks the channel number and basic settings so you can operate the radio without having to look at it.
Bluetooth™ wireless communications (option)
Allows you to connect a Bluetooth audio or data accessory.
Clone data from one radio to another

Low battery warning
When you do eventually use almost all the charge in your battery your radio will conveniently let you know it is time to change or recharge your battery.
VOX hands free (with audio accessory)
When you attach a VOX enabled audio accessory you can operate totally hands free. All you need to do is talk and your Entel radio will automatically transmit for you.
Battery charge count
Whichever model you choose, these batteries will count the number of completed charge cycles, which on LCD variants, if dealer enabled, can be displayed when you power-on your radio. For your convenience it will even alert you to imminent battery life expiration. If you opt for a system of non-display portables then we recommend that you have at least one model with a display in order to take advantage of this unique feature.
