Just in case anyone is looking for a replacement VHF, the Standard Horizon Eclipse DSC - GX1000S seems to be quite a rig. For me the two way position (NEMA in and out) sold me on the rig. Hard to believe but just under $100 delivered to the house. It will interface with your chart plotter providing both your position for emergency use as well as receiving the position of other boats when transmitted. Amazing price.
