Magazine's 'consumer test'
In Oct 2006 Practical Sailor magazine article, "The buzz on inexpensive VHFs," they rated 8 handhelds.
Editors tested transmitting, receiving, display, audio, durability, and battery life.
Best choice: Uniden MHS350, $150.
Budget buy: Standard HX 270 S, $100.
Recommended: Uniden Atlantis 250G, $100
Others tested included the West Marine VHF50 and the VHF150, the Icom IC-M32 and the IC -M2A, and Uniden Voyager.
None were equipped with GPS.
