The standard Horizon device is manufactured by the manufacturer YAESU, a world-class radio manufacturer. The operation is functional and logical, unfortunately different to eg ICOM. We use it as a supplement to a fixed device. The 12V open food clip not part of the delivery - The cable to connect to the cigarette lighter had to be cannibalized.

good display, clear operation, I did not have to try the buoyancy, a bit big for delicate hands, otherwise perfect as always with Standard Horizon!
