Testing Testing Over...

I went for a late evening paddle from Llantwit Major to test out my new Standard Horizon HX280E VHF Radio. Thanks to everyone who commented I decided to go with this model last weekend. It's really easy to use, water proof and at £89 was a lot cheaper than some models. I received a forecast update and a few other messages loud and clear. Only down side is it doesn't float. I paddled as far as St Donnats castle taking in the caves on the way, which for once I could get close to.

Hi Stuart, don't think you will go far wrong with your VHF. Although it is waterproof you may find if it gets wet you may lose a bit of volume. As a result I keep mine in a Aquapac case which I have had no problems with volume loss when receiving or broadcasting and it is easy to secure with a outboard motor cut out cable which I got from the chandlers next to Up and Under on Penarth Road.

Thanks for the tip Richard.
