Whilst you are here Jon.

Can I ask you if the IC-M1Euro V is much better than the IC-M31.

Thanks, Nick.

IMHO loads better!!

Lithium-ion battery, longer standby, no problems with battery management.
Faster charging 5hrs against 12hrs.
Semi inteligent charger, knows when battery is full so the light goes out.
If the battery has more than about 80% still in it the charger will not charge it so you can never cook your battery.

You can add an extension Speaker mic.

Also is the chosen and standard radio of HMGC, Fisher Protection, Irish CG, Irish Navy, large use with in the Royal and Merchant Navy.

Loads of Powerboat instructors use it oh and that nice Jon Brooks bloke has one too

Hope that helps

Regards

I ask because I saw it in a couple of places at 280.

Thanks, Nick.

Just upgraded from an M31 to Euro V. No doubt about it, it's a better radio. Main reason is the battery as Jon says. The M31 always uses current even when switched off which means the battery only lasts a month in a grab bag before becoming useless and needing a recharge. Not much good in an emergency . Bit surprised by Icom on this one!
