VHF Radio's are a Must Have when heading Off Shore
The boys from CH Smith Marine are always being asked the difference between a handheld marine VHF Radio and a hard mounted marine VHF Radio.
What's best and what's the difference.
It all comes down to the power output of the radio itself and then the length of the radio. The higher the power output (in Watts) the better range the system will give. A normal handheld VHF radio provides 5 watts whilst a mounted larger radio produces 25 watts and when combined with a big tall aerial, give excellent offshore reception.
Great idea to have both option for your next big boating adventure.
