I bought this VHF last year:
Welcome to StandardHorizon.com
I selected it because it has:
25W power (all fixed units have this)
weather bands (just about all fixed units have this)
DSC (again, all fixed units have this)
GPS Repeating - speed, course, lat / long, etc. are displayed on the screen. With the main unit mounted below, it works like a repeater.
Second Station (RAM Mount) so I can use the radio from the helm.
Price - I paid about $150 for the radio and another $100 for the ram mount.
I used the radio a little last year and it worked fine. I like the second station a lot.
