Today whilst i was at work my other half went out on the rib with my parents for the day, its not a problem as the all are boaty people, my missus has PB2 and my dad is advance PB and i would rather the rib was used than collecting dust. But she somehow dropped my Icom M31 handheld over the side and lost it. I have a base unit in the rib aswell but its not the best, its a Cobra F75. She was quite upset and annoyed with herself and so ordered an Icom M33 before telling me she had lost the M31.
Now this is the question, do i get the M33 knowing that i should have a handheld as back up and especially as my cobra isnt the best, or do i ask her to send it back, and order a new base unit such as a SH 1500 or Icom M21 and do without a handheld. My dad does himself have a handheld i can borrow but he uses it himself at times.
Is it better to have dodgy base and have new handheld, or replace base unit with good new one and no handheld??
