I think the review said it all. The new Standard Horizon is the winner, and not only because of it's waterproof design.
I like Standard products. Have a fixed-mount Standard VHF
on my boat, and generally like their approach. I believe Motorola now owns them...not sure, but Vertex Standard, Yaesu, and Motorola all seem to be tied up together.
If I were in the market for a new marine VHF
handheld, I'd certainly go for the Standard. Meanwhile, since I'm a ham I'll stick with my Yaesu (Vertex Standard/Motorola??) VX-170's which are waterproof/submersible and great performers across the board.
