Default Standard Horizon Phantom PS1000 25 Watt VHF Radio?

Looking to purchase and install this radio in my Montauk. I like the idea having the guts of the radio in the console and not having a large hole in the dash. Any opinions?

Installed a bunch of em- great units, no reason not to go with it. I *think* it's the PS2000 now, but they were blowing out the 1000s for cheap cheap this spring- I'd look for one of the 1000s on the cheap...

I have one installed on my Whaler as a backup. Tremendous value plus a great radio. I have it connected to my Garmin 376c for DSC purposes.





The best thing is that you can work around it. This is my install after I changed to a BEP 716 Battery Distribution Cluster.

Not bad, but if you add the amplified exteranl speaker, you can kill fish with it- it's so damn loud you don't need a radio.

I installed a PS1000 a couple of months ago. I mounted the mike onto a piece of mahogany that I velcro to the dash facing me and I can here the radio just fine at 4000-5000 engine rpm with the volume set at less than half. The received audio is good on the speaker/mike. This radio is great for a smaller cc. It takes a little getting used to having to push a couple of buttons to change squelch or volume but otherwise is very easy to use.

Jim at BOE has a great price on this radio (PS1000) last I checked. I was going to order one from him earlier this week, but found the PS2000 with included RAM+ mic new on eBay for a price I couldn't refuse. The seller still has a few - you can search eBay for "170099399377" to find the listing. The seller said they were new-in-box, but I guess I won't really know until it arrives tomorrow.

The PS2000 is the same setup, only it's a class D radio. This means it has a dedicated receiver for DSC (Channel 70). Normally the PS2000 doesn't come with a mic, so you have to buy a $100 RAM+ just to use it. The eBay deal basically includes a free RAM+ mic.
