Looking at buying
a new Handheld VHF
for the boat and have come across three which in all honesty look very similar, Has anyone got any views on them?
1, Lowrance Link-2 Handheld DSC
VHF/GPS Cost: £189
Max 5w transmission
power but big screen
2, Standard Horizon HX851 DSC handheld VHF
, Cost £179
M91D VHF/DSC Handheld Radio
, Cost £229
Cant see a lot of difference so has anyone got any experiance of using them? are they all too chunky?, too heavy, have you tried more than one of the above? are they clear, do you think Icom
is worth the extra £50.
Any suggestions would be great before I part with my cash.
Yes looked at VHF's with no DSC but for the extra bit I may aswell go for one with DSC (safety first and all)..
