    Lightbulb When is the standard horizon HX890 coming to the UK?

    There have been a few threads on DSC handhelds recommending the HX870. On the standard horizon US site, it looks like the HX870 has been superceded by the HX890. But the UK site still lists the HX870. I hope the HX890 will be available here when Santa needs them

    Also whatís up with the HX870 vs HX870e?

    Very soon, I understand
    If found in the Brexit forum, please return to the real world.

    I think the 'e' is the Euro version rather than the US version

    ATIS will be enabled I expect. US channels will be switched off by default.

    A set bought in UK will have M1+2 enabled too

    Wall charger will be 220v rather than 110v

    Sorry, they said they'd be getting them in Spring, not May.

    Yes, Spring was indicated to me at METS. Awaiting final certification. Nice radio, bit slimmer than 870 and better display.
    SH models are usually designated S for US and E for Europe. Channels and FCC vs EU approval are difference.

    Just received my HX870E from a 'deal' with Seamark Nunn at £199 (SRP £279)
    Interestingly you can specifically select International, and UK, Belgium, Netherlands, Sweden and Germany as the European regions. The UK selection adds M1 (CH 37?) and M2

    I've just taken delivery of a Standard Horizon HX 890 E from Seamark Nunn for £200.

    Gael Force Marine also have them. The listing on their web page doesn't have the E (Europe) suffix but they assure me that it is the 'E' version.
