I have finally gave up on the Silvas and am going to spend the extra on the Icom but what I want is reliability, any thoughts on these two?
Are they both generally available, I need one by the end of next week.
Sorry i have not answered sooner was away yesterday.
Took my dad to the home of English football for his birthday.
He is a life long gooner and had not been to Hibury since before I was born!
Ah well enough of all that.
There are a few diffs between the two units.
The M601 is much larger and has a bigger display and much larger knobbs etc.
Makes it very easy to use and see at high speed IMHO.
It also has built in the loud hailer and fog horn feature.
In addition you can add the dual station Command mic.
The fist mic is also a speaker and the audio comes out of there in conjuction with the front speaker.
You can't fit the Command mic to the main mic socket.
You can mount the standard mic to the rear of the M601 (mod required).
This makes it very flush mounted!
If you were going for an M503 surly the 421 would be the better option as it has DSC?
All units are fully waterproof and come with 3 year warranty (as long as you fill in the card and return it.
Hope that all helps.
