Handheld VHF Radio - Best Option
I have a 16 foot flats boat and will be fishing inshore 99% of the time. Maybe at some point I would fish off the beach or take the boat to the keys but I will not be heading offshore very far if I ever do. So my questions are:
Is it stupid not to have a VHF with the GPS and DSC capabilities? Its about another hundred for these features.
Does anyone know if this particular radio is a good radio?
Are there any particular brands and or models you would recommend?
Since this is for emergency situations I want to do it right but also not spend an arm an a leg.
Thanks in advance!
