Best purchase ever Got this radio to be part of a marine rescue program, great service, great range, great product! October 8, 2014
Excellent Purchase I bought this radio as a backup to the main radio in my boat. I ended up using it as a travel radio on the road down into Baja this summer. Worked great for this and to stay in touch with friends who were staying in a nearby motel. I liked the piece of mind a good radio provided. Very clear signal and the battery life was great too. August 25, 2014
Dependable Unit This is the 2nd one I have purchased in 5-yrs. I still have the first one and just had to replace the rechargable battery this past fall. Use this unit almost weekley and it has been very dependable and a strong unit. March 9, 2014
Good Purchase The unit seems to work good, I can't tell how far its getting out, but conversation with boats in my area are crisp and clear. It definitely beats installing radios and big antennas. August 20, 2013

Staff Answer
A: 
Per the manufacturer owner’s manual, you can use channel 9 for recreational use for commercial and non-commercial boater calling. In addition, channel 68 and 69 would be for non-commercial recreational. Monitor your desired channel in advance to make sure you will not be interrupting other traffic. If you want this for home use just as a walkie-talkie, I would not recommend this product. This is designed more for boating. Thanks

A: 
When the unit is new or even a year+ old I can get about 16-20hrs out of it. This does depend upon how much you transmit from the unit verses just receiving.

A: 
I have had mine on for 24 hours. Though the battery indicator showed empty, it was still working strong. No transmissions were made during this time, but it is in an area were there is heavy marine traffic.

A: 
Be carefull with VHF radios as they are restricted to marine use and subject to penalties if use is abused. They are not be used say as a CB. The owners manual has clear warnings on this. They are meant for ship to ship communications. Land use is against federal law except where stated in the law.

Staff Answer
A: 
VHF radio is not the same thing as an FM radio. Very high frequency (VHF). This is more of a boating Handheld radio. Very high frequency (VHF) is the radio frequency range from 30 MHz to 300 MHz. A 5-watt handheld will communicate approximately 7 miles to another handheld, or approximately 20 miles to a well-equipped shore station.

A: 
Most handheld VHF manufacturers offer an optional battery tray for use with AA batteries. Certain models are actually packaged with both a rechargeable battery and back-up tray. This particular model it is sold separately through the manufacturer. It can be handy to have a back up tray when all else fails but a unit with a Li-Ion battery will out perform in terms of life.
