 Which type of VHF Radio?

"There are advantages and disadvantages to handhelds.Advantages include small size and portability, usefulness in an emergency, independence from the vesselís power and antenna. Disadvantages are related to the power output and battery life, which affects range and how long the equipment can be used. Li-Ion battery technology is generally recognised as a welcome development; in Icomís IC-M1EuroV and IC-M87 models, or example, it allows them to run for at least 27 hours. "
