With all due respect you will find most people will vote for their own VHF as long as they have never had a problem with it.
I have had the pleasure of testing most if not all the kit that is on the markent. I have worked for both Icom and Standard Horizon and at this end of the market you can't really beat the GX-1500 in terms of spec, value for money, easy of use and all the other bits that make a good VHF a good VHF.
In real terms there is not alot betwwen the Icom M411 and the GX-1500 but you get all the extra bits you have to buy for the Icom FOC with the GX-1500. As I said previous you also get a dust cover that you can't get for the Icom hence better value for money.
