The big thing is the law, its is illegal to own let alone use US kit over here.
£5000 fine and confiscation of the kit and if they want its power supply (yes thats your boat!) ""


Just a theoretical question, if it was plugged in to the mains would they confiscate the national grid and power stations?

thanks for replying everyone.

i understand that going to a show is probably the best place to get one but the problem is that all the shows seem to be miles and miles away can anyone recommend a good mail order place that i might be able to pick one up at a good price.

thanks again
nick

So what should you look for if buying a radio from the US.
Surely their boats are allowed in our waters with these illegal
radios! I would be supprised if any marine radio wasn't legal in
international waters.
I will email one of the sellars to see what they say.

Have a look at this one!
I-com M302 Fixed Mount Dsc Vhf Radio
Or have a look at Johnís previous posting on this thread!
Is it worth saving a few quid for a bit of important safety kit!

Pumpkin marine are a good mail order place. I have to say I would never buy another Icom product. The service department has taken over six weeks to sort out my two radios and the labour charge is 55 pound per hour.

I complained to Jon Brooks (top bloke) who arranged a discount but I lost any brand loyalty I had

Stuart

I have been away on leave, just back.

In our defence......
I had my assist try to contact you whilst I was away,
He has left messages on you mobile, no returned call and tried to send you a number of e-mails, all bounced back!

Your radio's have been done for a number of weeks and the service dept are awaiting payment.

Sorry you feel you have had very poor service.
I myself left a few messages for you to contact me after I sorted the discount, I have not heard a response from you.

We will not release products with out payment, ever.

Regards

Take it that you have spoken to Jennifer at Boat Electrics and Electronics at Inverkip Marina? if so Have you spoken to Dino at DDZ at Largs Marina, have a look about for the best price then ask Dino to Match it....he usually does
