    Terminals approved for use in the USA with Ray240:


    • Ericsson F221m GSM 900/1800/1900
    • RayCom (AMPS) Fixed Wireless Terminal
    • Telular SX4e GSM 1900
    • Telular SX4e Tri-mode (TDMA/PCS/AMPS)
    • Telular SX5e GSM 1900

    Terminals approved for use in Europe with Ray240E:


    • Ericsson F221m GSM 900/1800/1900
    • Nokia 22 fixed wireless PBX terminal with Panasonic PBX
    • Telular SX4e GSM 900
    • Telular SX4e GSM 1800
    • Telular SX5e GSM 900/1800

    What is required to interface a Fixed Wireless Terminal to the Ray 240/240E?
    In order to connect your Ray 240/240E to the fixed wireless terminal, your radio must be fitted with the DTMF interface. This interface was available as a factory installed option on all Ray 240/240E systems. The easiest way to determine if your radio is DTMF equipped is to inspect the Ray 240/240E's transciever box. Units fitted with this interface will have a pigtail with a single RJ-11 (female)telephone jack fitted to the transceiver box. If your radio does not have this interface, you can have it installed by returning the transceiver box to the nearest Raymarine Factory Service Center. When interfacing to any FWT other than the RayCom FWT, it is required that the radio be updated to software version 1.20 or higher. This software enables the Ray 240/240E to properly hear the ring tone generated by the FWT.

    How do I determine the software version currently installed in my Ray 240?
    The Ray 240/240E reports its software version on the LCD display of the handset when the unit is energized from the power switch at the front of the transciever box. Simply switch the power off, then on at the transciever, then power on the handset to see the version number.

You cannot just reprogram your Raymarine to european standard.

This radio has been built and is licenced for using with USA frequency, in Europe his use will be limited to lower bands with no modification.

To be fully adapted to higher bands, the radio must be taken apart, and you need to bridge a contact on the main board.

The use of the radio after modifacion won't be legal in Europe.

    See here : International CB

    In US and Canada you can use : 26.965 - 27.405
    AM/SSB

    40 channels, max power 4W AM, 12W SSB with no licence

    460 - 470
    FM

    General Mobile Radio Service (GMRS) license required.

    31.0-31.3 GHz

    Any mode microwave band now open for individuals to use, requires
    GMRS license.


    Your CB is set to use the frequency above right now.

    In Europe it depends on country, for example in UK:

    26.965 - 27.405
    FM

    40 channels, same frequencies as USA 4W max power

    Radios using this band are marked "PR 27 GB" or "CEPT PR 27
    GB" and are CEPT-approved


    Your radio is already set for using the bands above.

    Additionally in uk you use : 27.6 - 27.99
    FM

    40 channels, 0.01 MHz (10 kHz) spacing 4W max power

    Radios using this band are marked "27/81-UK" and are only legal
    in the UK


    and

    934.0125-934.9625 FM

    20 channels, 0.05 MHz (50 kHz)

    If you adapt your CB to use last two bands, its use will be illegal.

You may have inadvertently turned the backlighting off. Ray marine has an extensive library on-line. I have usually been able to find what I need there. May take some digging though.

Where can I buy a Raymarine replacement cord and microphone for a 2004 VHF


Sadly, the mic and cord for the Ray54 have been discontinued by the manufacturer. I guess if you plan to buy a Raymarine VHF, your best bet would be to buy a spare radio for parts. Unbelievable.

Here's the link to that conversation from Raymarine support.

I realize this question is old, but the information could be helpful to someone else.

Hi Michael

From the owner's manual (Page 14) you need to press "menu", then select "Frequency Group", then you have the choice of USA, Canada or International channels:

Here's the link to your owner's manual should you require it:

I have a one year old Raymarine 218 vhf which has been transmitting properly however the receiving has been spotty. I can sometimes only get about 1 mile reception. Lately even the one mile reception has a...


The main cause for lack of reception or transmit distance is the PL259 connector on the antenna coax that plugs into the back of the VHF. Check to make sure this connector is a high quality, marine grade connector. If it screws on and the coax shield is not soldered to the connector I recommend replacing the connector and soldering it. If the problem still exists I would try a different antenna to see if this is the problem. It is possible that the radio itself has a problem, but check these other issues first. Raymarine has a 3 year warranty on their VHFs so you could send it back for a no charge repair if the antenna doesn't solve your problem.

Good luck!
