Re: Replacing old VHF
I bought thr SH loud hailer to go with it. Get the smaller of the two for a masthead.
Use shielded wire to connect the hailer to the radio, or you'll pick up local radio stations with it.
I'm happy with it overall. Talks to my garmin handheld GPS with no problem. I bought it online from Hodges Marine Supply for a good price a year or so ago.
