Hi guys,

Need to get myself a good Vhf for enhancing safety, though I don't go out alone nither faraway. But thought 5-6w is a must as never now what gonna happened! :worried:

So looked at many post here in the forum and couldn't find much info about the Uniden MHS75 I assume it's the upgrade of VOYAGER?

What would you use and if you can help with why?

Cheers and much appreciate your help :y:

Dunno about the cobra, that Uniden came after the voyager, which I did have for years, unfortunately the battery is knackered and the replacement is only a few dollars off a new unit which happens to be the one you mention, dont like the idea of car charger only supplied :n: Would also recommend looking into the Icom range of handhelds mate...

awondering Cheers mate, looked at them and the Icom which I couldn't find much info about it plus price a bit high to my budget so went with HH350.

Cheers :y:
