If Searider had to pay 23 for a product with a RRP of 17.63, thoses comparisons are worth diddly.

Add to these prices the time and fuel to go back to the dealer (30 mile round trip in my case) when you find out that there isn't a flush mount kit in the box and this turns into this .

It would seem to be and always been the case not to supply them as standard by a vast number of radio companies.

Only two I know of that do "give" it away and what they give away is not the same as our "bit of bent metal"

IMHO 23 does seem a bit odd, I would not expect to pay over the SRP.

Flush vs. Bracket Mount

Jon,

Do you sell many flush mount kits? Or do most people fit their radios on the bracket?

I accept that if the vast majority of people fit their radios on the bracket then this should be included in the box and the flush mount kit considered a "specialist" extra.

I would have thought that most people flush mount though?

How about supplying without either mounting kit and then choosing the one you want either included in the price or at extra cost for all.

Anyway, when all's said and done the radio looks good, I can now fit it, but feel a bit peeved at the retailer.

The bent pieces of stainless do, actually, look quite good

Regards

Hi Duncan

I have done a rough calculation based on M421 sales and flush mount sales for the last 3 months.
This is only a very rough guide.

From this it would indicate less than 15% flush mount the radios using the MB69.

I am pleased you are happy with the unit, I hope it serves you well.

Regards

Pumkin quoted 21 at the show when I bought my 421 @ 210. Thats 10% of the radio cost!
Perhaps they were making up for exceeding Icoms wonderful LBS discounts.

The other reason I did not get the flush kit was that I want to I want to make a good seal between the dash and the radio, to stop water getting inside the console. Its a shame the front panel/case gasket does not extend over the back of the flange.
{Edit} I would have gladly paid the 21 if a gasket had been included in the kit.

P.S. Sent my registration form off today, dont forget yours for the extra 2 years peace of mind.

Looked in the box at lunchtime today. little yellow bit of paper with a few rectangles drawn on it! When i sum the courage to hack into my console ill be sure to use the right one!

As for flush mounting kit, i got the whole lot from Ocean Safety with a discount because we do work with them, needless to say im very pleased with a good looking product and a healthy discount on the RRP.

Thanks.
Zippy.

Hi Jon, can I put forward that I think the radio power cables should be tinned.


I do like ICOM really..
