SEA Com Corp makes a full line of excellent HF marine radios, beginning with the SEA 235 which lists for about $2200. One of these sold very recently on this Board for $800, including a SEA tuner, a Pactor
, and other parts
. A truly fantastic deal.
There are many good used marine HF radios on the market, too. Those which are/were FCC type certificated are well known...no need to waste time looking. Examples include the Icom M600, M700
, M800, M700Pro, M710, M710/RT, and the current
M802 and the M801. There are a number of older SEA models, the Furuno 1502 and 1503, and the very excellent Kenwood TKM-707. One can argue about the Yaesu FT-600; as far as I'm concerned, it's also legit for use on the marine bands.
Many HF radios received certification
for use on the aircraft and land mobile bands, as well as on the marine bands.
