VHF Marine Radio's

I am looking to purchase a hand held VHF Radio. I searched online. There are so many to choose from. I don’t want to spend a fortune but I want what I need on the water. Not sure what I should make sure it has and don’t want to pay for things I won’t really need.Could use some advise.

Been discussed


Gets my vote. Alot for a little. I have one. It works well, very satisfied. Holds a charge for a long time. Waterproof. It is not expensive. That’s all I need.

Check it out.


if you want it as a last line of defense
Get an ICOM and get a lithium battteried model.

See other disccussion and learn how to use it by reading the manual and fcc regs.

IN training we love to lock up folks keyboards and see who knows how to unlock them!
