VHF and warranty periods

I am thinking of getting some new Waterproof VHF's and was wondering if any makers did more than a standard 1 year warranty, or an option for an extended warranty?

This suggests the ICOM 601 warranty can be extended to 3 years. Where's Jon Brooks when you need him?

BTW, try not to give your name anywhere when ordering - I'm sure everyone's heard of your reputation for breaking things!

Edit: this is confirmed by ICOM UK's own site: http://www.icomuk.co.uk/cgi-bin/sear...howitem=000006

Rouge, I'd recommend ICOM. One of our handhelds flooded and was replaced under the 3 year warranty. Top service.

Ohhhhh Louise wants me!! (thinks... only in my dreams)

I am here sweetie

It is true we offer 3 years FOC as standard on all our marine kit.
The radio's come with 12 months as standard.
Fill in the card and send it back here we will then give you 3 years.
This does not cover batteries on hand helds (they only get 12 months)
This does not cover bad installs or abused sets!!

Hope that helps.

Regards

I believe I said 'need' rather than 'want' but hey - what's a little 4 letter word between friends?

BTW, we tried to say 'hello' at RIBex but couldn't get near you for your adoring fans so had to settle for admiring your radios close up and you from afar!

So when are you coming to the Solent then? We'll take you for a spin.

Edit: Oh, and if you could tell us how to fix the mic on our very old ICOM, we'll even buy you lunch!

Stuart, highly recommend Icom's M1 EuroV with w/proof mike. Brilliant bit of kit. Would be even better with a nice yellow belt holster though.

"Need" is even better

What is the problem with the mic?

You know you do the odd comentry and eveyone then wants your pic and autograph (thinks.... dreaming again!)

Am not sure as to my next visit to the Solent.
Next deff visit is for Southampton Boat Show.
We are having our own stand for the very first time.
We are also looking at having 2 ribs on the "try a boat"

I am sure I will that way before then but nothing deff as yet will let you know.

Pete, its still on the list to find but we don't have that many of them in.

Regards

Basically it doesn't transmit. When you press and hold the 'transmit' button, the receiving station hears the click but not the voice message.

Any ideas would be gladly received!!!

Best Idea is to rip it out send it here marked for my attention.
I will then get the workshop to sort it (if it can be sorted)

Cheers Jon. Next time we're at the boat we'll do just that then.

P.S. In your very first post here you mentioned that you had been involved with radios ever since college except for 2 years "playing James Bond". care to elaborate...?
