Handheld --Garmin 76Cx

Fixed mount VHF -- Standard Horizon STANDARD QUEST-X and a Digital 529 antenna. The S/H radio's have a smaller face than the Icon's and take up a little less space. That's why I like them better than Icon unit's.

That smaller display shows more info, as well. The S/H units, when connected to the GPS, will show Lat/Lon, Speed, Heading, Date and Time.

my back-ups to rayc80, and icom 402 are the following handhelds,
Garmin map76 & Std.horizon's HX460 (great reception and very compact!)
Both are still available and are even cheaper as "color" has invaded the handhelds (colors kills batteries!), and the VHF is or will soon be disco'd so those that have them are blowing them out at cheap prices! 'Tis the way of electronics.
