Handheld VHF radios
In the ham world (KD6QEU) I love Icoms. That being said, I''ve got the standard horizons handlheld and, perhaps I''m lucky, but I''ve had no problems with it. Batteries last a trip to the islands and back. It''s been dunked more times than I''d like to admit, and kicked, dropped, and thrown around the cabin for hours, and still works fine.
