This is where icom come in to its own right, it has the same menu as bigger versions the m323 , m423 and M523 when it comes out.

No reason - not use the m91d as fully pledged DSC radio.

the M91D / new icom interface is very easy to use.

Each to there own I suppose...

I had a chance to compare the Icom and SH side by side last week - they are identical size, shape, weight i.e. both quite bulky, both float, flash, plastic housing, all buttons, etc. Try the software and see which you prefer. I got the SH because there was a price difference that tipped it in that direction for me.

To be honest, neither will be any good for playing with the more esoteric functions while bouncing along at 20kn, but simple channel selection and DSC alert are going to be fine.
