On the water with family and friends - enjoying the sun, the boat snacks, the refreshments and the conversations. And those times you need to communicate outside your vessel, VHF radios are an essential communication device to have onboard. Programming the proper radio channels allow you to call the marina, other vessels, coast guard for emergencies and check the weather. Within busy waterways, monitoring vessel traffic with AIS and/or incorporating radar can help you and others avoid any accidents when out on the open waters. Icom - We play like you do.
