All about kayaking from the San Francisco Bay Area


I’m in the market for a vhf marine radio.  I’ve read some of the gear reviews from blogs and it appears the two major brands seem to be ICOM and Standard Horizons.  I’d like it to be a transceiver and at least IPX-7 rated.  I don’t know if I need it to float as it’s tethered to my PFD.  I appreciate your feedback…….

eat well, sleep well……….paddle fast

  1. I use the Uniden MHS450. higher waterproof rating than IPX7. small. rugged. I like that it can use lithium ions or AA’s. It goes to Alaska with me every year.
