Product Description

You simply won't find a better value on today's VHF market. In addition to the convenience of weather alert, programmable scanning, dual-watch and tri-watch, we really like the option of being able to use the included rechargeable battery or standard alkaline batteries. This option means you always have a way to power up the radio when you need to. It comes with a charging cradle and AC charger, plus a DC cord so you can charge underway. At this price, why not pick up a pair!

      I expected this to float. It said it floats.
      Who cares if its splash proof when the cheap clip breaks while on the dinghy and the radio goes straight to the bottom of the Delaware?

        The radio is ok I got from West Marine. But CH 16 allways jumps back when the radio is shut of and then switched on. It does not keep memory of the privious channels. I tried to get to Uniden for service help if the this can be changed. West Marine geve me 2 Telephone number to call for this simple info, but Uniden never anwers, including the Email I send. I spent hours for nothing. Uniden service is no no good, It does not exist.

            Sailing solo I can be in the cockpit and simultaneously communicate with bridge controls and other necessary contacts. Comforting to know in an emergency I can be where I'm needed and still complete necessary communication with response agencies.

                    I bought a unit on line. Got it delivered in MIA and carried the unit to Brazil. The first unit had problems to turn on. most of the times the unit simply did not turn on. A friend took it back to MIA, exchanged to me and brought a new unit back to Brazil. The second unit turns on, receives, but does not transmit, simply unbelievable. I sent it back to U.S. and asked this same friend to change it again. My advice: look for another model, but if for whatever reason you wish this very model, fully test the unit before you leave the shop. I am glad West Marine has been supportive on the exchanges.
