Ok, I need your help, suggestions and ideas. My son is in Pensacola courtesy of the Navy and our tax dollars. While learning to become a pilot, he has found time to buy a used boat. It seems to me that it would be a good idea to get him a handheld radio, just in case, but I live in Ohio. Any water we have here (Cincinnati) you can see across so I'm clueless as to what make, model, etc... would be a good one to get. Thanks for your help and ideas.
