[QUOTE=Rupert Bear]I don't have room for a seperate DSC set and I remain to be convinced that an Icom combined set at twice the price of the Silva and four times the price of the cheapest DSC set is going to be 4 times as reliable, certainly not without seeing it myself.QUOTE]
We would like to think they are! and most of our customers would agree.
If you wanna see them in action come and find me at either Sportsboat and Rib or Ribex and I will be more than happy to show you our kit in action.
There will also be boats at each event so you can see them in the field as it were too.
Oh and we have no supply problem on our fixed kit at all!
Have to say I know of no H/H marine radio that will "run" from 12v, most will charge but not "run".
