Standard Vertex HX260E

Went to look at a liquidation sale for a local shipping company yesterday, there's a Standard Vertex HX260E handheld radio there, seems to be in good nick and works ok, how much would one of these be worth second hand? I'm going to put in a reasonable bid but don't want to go too silly!

Doesn't seem to be a current model as far as I can tell?

Thanks

Stephen

Hi Stephen,

I own an HX270e, and it the 260 is anything like as good, you'll love it! A 270e brand new will cost you around 100 at present, so adjust accordingly!

I guess the 260 is the previous model? Not worth more than about 50 then if you can get a new one of the new model for 100 even if it will cost another 50 to get it here!!!

At present I use a normal 2m VHF which "also does" the marine band and carry it in an Aquapac but if I can get a proper waterproof handheld I'll make a bracket on the console to carry it then I have a radio again

Thanks

Hi Stephen

Yes the 260 was a previous model, looks a tad like the Entel!
If it works its has to be worth 50 of anyone's money but if you can get it cheaper then all the better.

Batteries still available.

All the best

Thanks Jon

50 or so was about what I thought I might bid, not worth going over that just in case I have to buy a new battery or something, from my experience that is likely to be another 50 which would have bought a new radio
