I have a CP 150C (now discontinued) which looks like a CP 155C. It is a nice compact unit which flush or surface mounts.

It does just what it says on the box. Since I found the "Sunlight" display setting, I can not fault it.

The joystick takes a bit of getting used to, but I now find it easier than a load of buttons.

It also carries a 3 year gaurantee and now has the added support of Mr Jon Brooks, who will no doubt be along soon.

I have two Standard fixed mount VHFs (one in the house, so that hardly counts!) as well as a hand-held. They get dunked often and I have never had a problem. Now that I think of it, I also have an old Standard hand-held which must be 15 years old. It still works fine, except the battery won't hold a charge and it was less expensive to get a new radio than a new battery.

Ahh Mr. Brooks - I guessed that would be where you would have gone - couldn't really see you sticking up for Silva or similar.

Still gets me why they call Yaesu Standard Horizon - damn Yanks again!!!

Have dabbled in amateur radio in the past and the blokes I know who are into that sort of thing all fight each other over whose best Icom or Yaesu - mmm I wonder???
