    I've been berated by some for making exactly this suggestion in a previous thread. The radio is very versatile, has a real quality feel about it and is amazing value for money. They can be a bit tricky to program and this is easiest done with free software from the interweb. By coincidence, a newby on the PBO forum is asking for help to program marine vhf channels.

    I have a Baeofeng waterproof unit for use on the boat - and a non-waterproof unit for one off the boat (or when it's dry). The only complaint with the waterproof one is that the audio is rubbish when it's been submerged - you have to wait for it to dry out (!) - but that's it ... for the price, they are excellent units and have meant we can use digital selection on the PMR channels to have "private" conversations (we can't hear anyone else on the channel ).
    Programming cables cost a few £, but worth it - unless you could get together as a club and save a few quid that way.
