This looks like a terrific handheld: Standard Horizon HX400 5Watt Handheld VHF with Land Mobile Channels
. Small, light, and apparently built like a brickhouse. With at least one rotary control!
What differentiates it from other is that it can be programmed with additional channels and even repeater codes for 2-meter ham, land mobile, or other services from 137 to 174 megaherz. It means you can program in Channel 0 if you want to listen to the CG, or the unique UK marina and race
channels, and you can use it for 2 meter ham bands if you have a license
And for all that it only costs $165.
Sounds pretty irresistable. Anyone using one of these, or the similar HX370?
