After many years of great service my Standard Horizon HX350X has finally given up the ghost, that is the Ni-Cad battery won't hold charge anymore.... Getting the battery rebuilt is about $60 at the local Batteries Plus, and they don't make new ones anymore... This has taken a beating over the years, time for an upgrade, and I am going to keep it as a backup and use the AA battery case.
With that I am looking at a few replacements in the way of:
- Icom - M24
- Standard Horizon HX-300
- Cobra - HH-500
- West Marine VHF-160
Any feedback here on any of these models?
