Default SH VHF Phamtom PS 1000 or 2000 comments

I may add a second VHF radio to a 25 foot sport cabin this year.

Anybody have newer comments on either one, these are the ones you can mount remote since they have no display. Everything is run and displayed on the microphone.

The PS 2000 can run extra RAM+ microphones and foghorn/hailer.

Thanks.

Great radios but they have been discontinued. You can find them on E-Bay.

They work as advertised. Mic is a bit larger than normal to account for the display but I'm a big fan of mine. Like the fact I can hold the mic to my ear while underway so I can hear what the other person is saying...

These also provide full DSC support for position send, position polling...

I have the PS 1000. Not sure why they were discontinued. I can have the two radios and not clutter up the under the console area (the black box is below). Very easy to read, can bring up to your eye level--and as FireFly says, you can put the speaker to your ear.

Thanks guys. I didn't do it last year when they were available.

I'll look around as you said.

I liked the feature as I was going to mount the unit in the vee-berth and not take up room in the cabin for other electronics. It would be the primary radio as I have an original SH Eclipse that came with the boat (not the Eclipse Plus), and it is just a basic radio.

They are selling them for around 100 dollars a piece on Amazon.com

Its a good radio, full Class D DSC, and (after having anther one stolen off my boat) I like the fact that I can detach the mike and lock it in the cabin, away from sticky little hands.

Thanks.

I got one on E-Bay tonight, PS 2000. I'll get the microphone separately.

Sandyda - good point! I bring my mic home after each trip - will probably get many years of use out of it considering it will be out of the elements most of the time this way.

NOLIMIT40, are the ones on Amazon new, I only came across used ones.

The order I tried to do on E-Bay is sold out now and the order was cancelled.

Thanks.
