Extra Points, Paul! Why didn't I think of that?

I should have also mentioned that, over the decades, we are on our second handheld VHF, and would not leave the dock without it.

Notably, the original (installed in '88) Furuno fixed-mount VHF in our boat still works perfectly. Kudos to the first owner for picking it. I take it in for an annual free bench-check and the dealer refuses to sell me a new one, saying that mine is well built and right on the power output and frequencies.

Cheers,
