    I trust Cobra for electronic accessories. Decided to replace my Cobra portable VHF radio with a fixed mount radio. The portable will be my back-up radio. I needed the additional range of a hhigher antenna on a fixed radio. The portable radio is handy to use any where as a weather radio. The only draw back is the antenna mount. I will eventually replace the one that came with the package with a stainless steel one. The installation was fairly easy and lookd good.

          I use this radio on the BIG SANTEE COOPER LAKE when you are out on that lake a storm can come up like going around a cove, so it is nice to know the crew on the boat can be safe because we have a very good radio that keeps us up to date on everything weather, fishing and it is best one I have owned and I have had three other models and brands but this one is the best. Everything comes with it so you don't have to go several places to find what you need to get it mounted and set up it all comes in the box.

                  A:

                  You could get another antenna to go with that radio. Try item 900026 or 900030. They should install rather easily.

                  A:

                  The antenna itself does not collapse but the ratchet mount will allow you to fold the antenna down 90 degrees so that it is horizontal instead of vertical for traveling.

                  A:

                  When looking at VHF radios the rule of thumb is 1 watt equals 1 mile. It also depends on your surroundings. Rather you are in a wooded area or in a cove surrounded by cliffs. With that being said on a clear day out on the water you are looking at about 25 miles.

                  Answered on 9/16/2009 by Chad @ Overton's from Greenville, NC
                • A:

                  The 1 watt per mile rule is no where near true. Working for an antenna tower manufacturer and a little reasearch on the shakespere website shows a lot of variables that effect range. Especially terrain. You will have better range on an open lake, or out at sea, than you will on a river.

                  Here is the formula. You factor the square root of the height to the tip of your antenna above the water line measured in feet. Multiply that by 1.42 that gives you a range. Now you must know the hieght of the antenna that you are trying to contact and perform the same formula. Add both numbers together, that is your range.

                  Two boats trying to reach each other with an 8 foot antenna, would be able to do so at a maximum range of about 10 miles.

                  The higher your antenna is, the farther the range you have.
