I'm a SIBer and hope at some stage to be taking to the sea, but need to first collect the mandatory sea-faring equipment set...one of which is of course a VHF radio.
My friend (a HAM enthusiast) has this for sale:
Two Way Radio KG-679E
He wants £40 for it, boxed, unused and brand new together with the programming cable - is this suitable for marine use, i.e. does it have the appropriate frequency? I'm aware that its not entirely waterproof but this doesn't worry me as it can sit inside a waterproof bag etc.
