Most modern repeaters will cover the marine bands, from a technical point of view.
It willcome down to licencing as to if you can do it.

I understand you issue Doug and have to say there is no simple answer for what you need.

Life is never simple.

Oh and Garf, Iwould not go and work for any company if I felt they made crap kit!
Even when I was at Icom, whenasked would sayhow good the kit it here and I stand by that now
As I said there is a lot a dross out there but not out of the Icom or Standard camp!!

Thanks everyone

Jimbo and Sparkey

I think both of your ideas sound like they work best and are simply variations of the same theme a remote vhf at the centre would solve the basic problem, I am going to look into this further. It appears to be simple on the licensing front as well

Jimbo I expect you will have some more thoughts on the PC/VHF link. let me nkow if u do.

doug - I think this is the sort of thing Jimbo was suggesting - but for am. radio rather than marine use. How easy (or legal) it might be to adapt this for marine use is another thing...
