SX851 +1 ..

if you remember the beep beep beep beep beep beep beep beep beep beep ...all the way round Anglesey .......that's the icom version saying its wet....

either the icom or SH with DSC has to be the way forward....

I used to be an icom person but do think SH have caught up and overtaken icom in the last few years value wise.
