So people like the Uniden HH940 I gather...? I looked at one at West
Marine at the weekend - probably should have bought it - cheap at $179
and it was no tax at the weekend. Two things put me off it at the time -
its only 1W as opposed to most other handheld models which offer a 5W
mode, and also that I was told it didn't have a battery indicator (which
apparently it does). Sounds like 1W is enough to contact the CG is
you're sailing in the bay?

The other radio I looked at last year was the ICOM-M1. Its a 5W
transmit; don't know about battery indicator. Its also $80 more. Anybody
think its a better buy?

Great first session for me at 3rd on Saturday. Perfect 5.0 day (190#) -
couldn't ask for a better start to the season. Water temp didn't seem
bad either, although the wind chill was coolish further out. Great to be
back on the water.
