I thought the difference between USA and European type vhf's were the A channels.

My understanding of this is that the USA radios have 01A, 02A etc, and these are simplex and not duplex.

They also come equipped with 10 weather channels, which are no use to anyone unless you like to listen to TV antenna installers in the London area.

As for type approval, several boatowners in Poole had problems a couple of years ago following an inspection by the authorities.

Guys
Trying very hard not to get dragged into this debait on CE approval of radios etc.

If you are going to buy a radio abroad make sure you can change it to International frequencies, thats the most important bit, without the INT frequency range you get problems in communicating - Which to my mind (to an ex comms engineer) is the sole reason for having that box of ticks in the first place.

Have fun and play safe.

Second Hand VHFs

While I was in Greece forgot to mention that I found a shipchandler that sells second hand portable and fixed VHFs (no GMDSS) between Euro 185-300.
With GMDSS Euro 250-500. All products come with 1 year guarantee and they are all CE marked.
I also forgot to keep the details of the shop but have asked a frined of mine and will have that soon if any one is interested.
