the m-31 was a crap radio. mine suffered water damage, so did my mates, and at the time i kept seeing things like spare battery packs etc for sale on ebay as though other people had suffered the same and no longer needed the bits. in my case icom were great - they said the radio was out of warranty but they gave me an ex demo icm1-euro with 12month warranty totally free of charge! still going strong 6 years later, and also just bought an m71.

2 x M31s that never even made it on the boat because they leaked like seives. Icom replaced with Euros. Been Great.

But I wouldn't choose a M31 again.

Nowt you can do with a second hander that fails. ??Standard Horion's look and feel tougher...

Curious... Does it have a warning on it that it is not a lifesaving piece of equipment or something simillar - makes me chuckle every time I see it on the Euro!!
