Hand-held VHF Marine Radios


Recommended Posts

I'm considering replacing my old 27 meg radio (the aerial is stuffed) with a head held VHF unit. I Only venture 3-4 km offshore so don't require a really powerful unit.

Does anyone have advice re specs to look for, such as power rating? They seem to be either 2.5, 3 or 5 watts. I will purchase a floating model just in case it goes overboard somehow. Any other things to look for?

Any recommendations about particular models that Raiders have found to be suitable for "inshore" work? Please PM me if giving brand names and models is frowned upon here!
