I would wholeheartedly agree with going to a store to have a try, only problem for us up North is the stores will only get them in if you are buying it, they won't stock stuff that ain't selling, so only choice is to ask for advice on here n hope for the best, oh for the choices of the South Coast

This is true. I've just tried one of the locals but they can't match Force4s deal on the Icom

I've rung round a few of the local dealers, got fed up with being fobbed off with old stock, the Force4 deal with a 2nd battery sold it too me, but I was very tempted by the SH, I think if I had the chance to have a play with both before buying I may have gone for the SH, but very happy with the Icom

I'm not unfair enough to try them in the local stores then order online, I'll just try them both in a Force4 store. Bit of a drive like but hey ho

I agree, if somewhere local is good enough to stock the kit and can compete reasonably close on price then I would be more than happy to support them

I think based on the feedback from you guys the differences are mostly about the packaging rather than anything else. I'll have to handle them both now!! I was hoping one of them would be rubbish hahahha.

The menu system on Icom M91d is far superior than SH IMHO , I hAve used both - I own a real m91d and training version I use on courses ...

I looked at both and went for the Icom. The menu and buttons are just spot on.

Battery life has been much better than my previous Icom
