Handheld Radio advice Needed

One way to deal with the range "problem" on a handheld is to remove the whip and connect it to the mast top antenna. a special fitting is probably necessary. that being said, i am able to reach the marinas in the harbor from most locations between, say, the war college and brenton point. on the battery issue; my lithium-ion battery in my Icom M1V has extraordinary long life.
