    My point was that Jon Brooks made the effort to warn British Boaters about a problem that affectd British Boaters. All the smokescreen about products designed for other parts of the World is irrelevant to Domestic Boaters & seems purely there so that Jon Brooks can be attacked. The EU's regulations are the EU's fault, not Icom's or any other manufacturer. Morover the attacks are repeated & repeated for no apparent reason. It is noticable that when Sonsy Lass was questioned in a similar tone he resorted to a childish display that, as I said, says a great deal about him. I have no objection to reasoned argument but this was far from reasoned. The guy was trying to help us & should be applauded for that.

    Congrats for staying just the right side of intervention on my part in your debate but a gentle caution against this getting any more personal.

    In fact Ham radio DOES have to be approved through R&TTE and also CE marked.

    It in NOT legal to use a HAM radio on the marine bands.

    We (ICOM) make it very clear of the implications of fitting this unit to a EU flagged vessle.
    Our website is clear regarding its use.

    Simple answer:

    The International channels will work but none of the UK additionals such as M and M2.

    US boats are licensed by the FCC and therefore are dealt with by their own administration if causing problems.

    Before anyone starts with the old "Americans don't have ship licences" chestnut go here http://wireless.fcc.gov/marine/fctsht14.html

    US Commercial vessels of course use equipment which is compliant with the Marine Equipment Directive.

    The only time that Amateur equipment doesn't require R&TTE compliance is if the Amateur has built it him or herself. We (RA rather than my bit) could not expect them to go through the rigamarole for one item of equipment that they are only going to use themselves.
