Default VHF radio

Anyone ever buy one? Which models and how much. Would be handy in the logging areas.

I use the Motorola marine vhf radios. They are fairly small, waterproof, and 25 watt. Night and day difference in range in mountain terrain. It's also surprising how many places,in the back country you can still get out to a marina or water operation that monitors the marine channel 16. I have been very happy carrying and using them. EW

Is it legal to use a marine radio on the land like that? Just wondering.

I think you're supposed to have a license to own and operate a vhf (or 2 meter) radio, at least in canada. Maybe that's just for vehicle-mounted units though. 4x4 guys use them all the time to talk to each other, but also to drivers on active haul roads.

We had one out at a heli shoot one day to talk to the pilot, that was pretty crucial. In an emergency situation it sure would be handy to be able to talk to SAR directly instead of a sat phone relaying through someone in an office a thousand miles away.

Default vhf

do those vhf radios work with all the other handhelds, like the motorola talkabouts, or does your whole riding group need to have the vhf radios ?

Question.
Will you be buying a pair of them just for one to talk to the other, or are you trying to be able to talk to different people who might be out there in the woods with you.
