At this years Southampton boat show I bought an ICOM M23. Did a fair bit of homework first, as it was going to be used for work not leisure. Have only used it a few times so far (don't do much boat work in the winter) but it is easy to operate, nice and loud, and if its as rugged as previous icoms I have used I will be happy.

My M71 is 5 years old and works fine, charges like new etc but looks battered.

My SH handheld won't hold a charge very well after 18 months but looks like new-probably because I usually use the M71 as it's easier to attach to a lifejacket securely.

I'm not going to recommend a radio but to have a speaker mike, I've an icon with speaker mike attached to my life jacket, with the mike close to my ear I can hear even when it's windy and by the time you have put your hand over the mike to push the talk button it cancels the wind noise on transmission
