Comments about Raymarine Ray218 Class D DSC VHF Radio with Loudhailer:
I've used a Ray 218 VHF for three years, and added a second station for the cockpit. The ease of having another station in the cockpit allows me to keep on fishing while staying in communication with my buddy boats. DSC calling is also nice on crowded days offshore.
