Nik i can also vouch for ICOMs customer service side, my hand held flooded after 5 months and it was the first time i'd really used it in anger ( or maybe i should say Phil Davies used it in anger) anyway the complete set was replaced to my complete satisfaction....do a search as there has been a lot of talk here about ICOM over the past months worth reading.

Hello Jon, one other query. These radios use ni-cads, is it possible to replace them with Li-ion?
Nick.

PS. Any special deals at ribex?

Ni-cad v Li-Ion

Nik

The only way to do this on the M21 or M31 is to get hold of Li-ion
AA cells and put them in the battery case.

The battery backs are only Ni-cad.

If you want Li-ion ans standard you would have to go for the M1EuroV or M87.

I am working on the Ribex stuff at the moment am not sure what we will do but am sure we will do something special even if it only for the Ribnet boys and girls

Regards

Jon thats very generous of you to offer huge discounts, 10 year warranties and px to members of ribnet. I hope steel developements can also offer something similar.

Perhaps one thing you could do is to offer a free check of radio ariels for gain / performance etc to members who bring there boats.

Pete

MMMMMMMMM!!!!!!

Pete

If I were to offer all that would soon be looking for another job!!
But watch this space for the offers!

I could offer VSWR checks, conection checks.
Not a lot more other than advice.

And only on Ribs fitted with our kit


Regards

Yes please, and can you tell the rest of them to get back in an orderly queue.

Think you and Steel Developements are going to be busy. Nice kit, we do like Icom having managed to trash most of the other makes over the years.

Err, no its not, but to be fair to Icom it did fall off the console twice before it stopped working, seem to remember you had to reassemble the bits too however it will go into Jon to see what can be done. Worrying bit is I can't remember if I registered it so the 3 years warranty bit might be sticky point.
