Standard Horizon Hx851 handheld July 22, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
The unit arrived in a few days and in good shape. Typical for Hodges Marine. It powered up out of the box (a bit of a novel experience of late). Major functions were tested and performed as expected.  The only negative aspect is the distance between the mic. and the speaker.  This is more of a personal issue than a product issue.  Durability, time will tell though our Standard devices are relatively reliable. So, bottom line, so far so good.

Got robbed June 15, 2014
Reviewer: 8stoked8  
Good Radio. Hodges Marine charged me double the shipping cost and forgot to send me both radios I had ordered. Radios were drop shipped from a location in NJ. Then customer service curtly told me to take it or leave it. Order from someone else to avoid the disrespect I recieved from spending hard earned $$ with Hodges Marine. West Marine was more pricey but much better customer service.

Good quality June 12, 2014
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Bend, Oregon  
Nicely designed and adequate quality for a handheld.  

My only suggestion for improvement would be a larger display, with larger text.  Currently, the displayed information is too small for my eyesight, especially under moving conditions. GPS speed is displayed, but rounded to the nearest MPH (no decimal).   Neither issue is a deal breaker however.

First VHF hand-held radio September 24, 2013
Reviewer: Greg from Eastern N.C., Pamlico Sound  
I've had a boat-mounted unit for years, but this hand-held is great. Not only can I take it on more than one water craft, but there are tons of features, like two channel reception, multi-power levels, GPS, MMSI/DSC etc. Yaesu makes it and I've had good experience with their land-based emergency responder radios.  I hope I never lose it over the side, but it's great that it floats. I've got an adapter to connect it to the mast-head, whip antenna on my sail boat for even greater reception than it already has. Great product. It brings me real peace of mind.

HH DSC Survival Radio June 19, 2013
Reviewer: T Stevens from Michigan  
Quite a machine. Great back up radio, and perfect for a ditch bag.
Great service from Hodges.
If there are any drawbacks it would be that it is more complicated to operate than a non DSC HH radio, but it is not rocket science.
