Hi all,

Does anyone on here use a handheld VHF ? I am looking to get one for hearing any changes to courses etc broadcast from my yacht club. They use channel 37, but a lot of the handhelds I'm looking at don't seem to have that channel ! Very useful ! Any ideas of one that will work for channel 37 and won't break the bank ?

Cheers

Most modern VHFs have 37 as 'M1' instead, same frequency, so you will probably find the ones you are looking at do the job
