Customer reviews
I ordered the radio in time, according to instructions, to be delivered on Thursday when there would be some one at home to receive it. It did not arrive until Friday and as there was no one at home it was taken back to depot which meant that I had to arrange to pick it up on Sat. As this radio was ordered for The National Coast Watch and was needed for a exercise early Sat morning it caused quite a few problems. NOT IMPRESSED.
