Comments about Midland NT1VP Nauticol VHF Marine Radio Value Pack:
I needed an alternative to my fixed VHF and thought this would suffice but it was difficult getting back to the channel required after going to Channel 16. Not good when you are in a busy waterway carrying a boat load of people. Was unable to find a rechargable battery for it; the arial cover snapped off and after it was knocked to the deck it stopped working altogether.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
