I need a good VHF radio but I don't want to spend more than 200.00.

I will not go more than 40 miles offshore. So I need to know which brand and type of marine radio is best for me.

I have a great deal on Icom M402S's
Have a look c

Tightline Rods :: Shop by manufacturer/ :: Icom :: ICOM M402S WHITE VHF

function FormValidation() { if(document.getElementById('product_avail')) if(document.getElementById('product_avail').value == 0) { alert("Out of stock"); return false; } return true; } ICOM M402S WHITE VHF #17227

The IC-M402S is identical to Icom's award-winning IC-M402, but the IC-M402S does not accept an optional remote control mic - the "S" version is ideal for boaters who don't need a second helm radio station or the expense of the optional mic connection port.

Large 2-digit Ch with scrolling channel names
IC-M402 LCDLook at the size of the LCD with large letters and numbers! The large, easy to see display has 27 x 43 mm (1 1/16 x 1 5/8 in.) dimensions, so channel indications are maximized. 10-character channel names and all settings are displayed at the same time.
Easy to hear speaker
A newly designed large speaker grill improves the output of the front mounted speaker. The result is that the audio sounds even louder than the 4.5 (typical) output capability, even over wind or engine noise.
Built-in DSC capability that meets U.S.C.G. SC-101
The DSC watch function monitors Ch 70, while receiving another channel. It allows you to send a formatted distress message in an emergency. The position request function indicates a caller's position. Up to 30 DSC IDs are memorized.
Rugged waterproof construction
By spraying off any salt with fresh water after your outing, the IC-M402 is designed to work for many years.
(Equivalent to JIS-7, submersible in up to 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes; except cables.)


* Dual and tri-watch functions
* Position indication when connected to GPS (GPS receiver is not included.)
* Adjustable LCD backlighting and key illumination in 4 steps for nighttime operation
* Supplied Remote Function Mic for convenient channel selection
* NOAA weather channels with alert function
* Simple and easy tag scanning system
* Radio and microphone available in black or white
Price: $115.00
