Default Handheld VHF radios...

Im going to axctually get one this week.. Using the boat on the lakes I never really needed or wanted one, but for the hudson im gunna grab one.

Do you guys normally use them on the hudson? If so what channels do you monitor? I am looking at the ones on cabelas website... The handhelds all seem to be the 2/5 watt switchable ones...

I have a hand held that I used out there for years,It's an Apelco VHF-510. I recently found out that they don't make this model anymore but I was still able to get a new battery pack for it recently,,think my wife got it for me for X-Mas bout 10/12 years ago. Has a range of about 5 miles. Like mrbuster said It's a very good thing to have out there,,for hearing where the fish may be & for emergency's(although most people have cell phones now) My radio has helped me & my buddy get on fish many time due to listening to others. Anyway,,Icom makes VERY good VHF radios,if I was to get another hand held it would be there top of the line one,,gl man.
