I picked up this radio "rebranded" by a marine retailer.

I've found it works very well. I was also able to connect a handheld GPS to it with very little effort.

The power selection feature is nice for not blowing away anyone near you. The DSC feature is nice for getting the location of family members in others boats.

I really like the one touch "distress" feature, although I've never used it. When connected to a GPS, it will send your location to the Coast Guard. Good for me since my wife doesn't speak english.

I have nothing negative to report other than the mic cannot be removed. However, there is a remote mic available separately.

I would like to include instructions for connecting a serial connector to the included accesory cable (for the GPS) but amazon doesn't allow this. Maybe you can "search" for it.

Very nice radio that works as advertised, I love the all scan feature, 16/9 button and WX reception and alert feature. This was the best price I could find on the net with fast shipping.

All I can say is this is probably the best value for a DSC unit. It works great, and is very well made. It has a large, clear display and plenty of volume. Adding a flush mount kit will make it look like a professional installation in your console. If you want a radio that is simple to use and has all the safety features, I don't think you can beat the price!

Nice compact unit. Comes with easy to use instructions. This is a lot of radio for the money. The scan all channels feature keeps you aware of what's going on around you. Waterproofing allows exposure to the elements. Large LCD display can be seen form a distance, even in bright sunlight. I can find no faults.

I installed this radio in a remote area in Fiji as part of a Peace Corps house that my son lives in. It is powered by a car battery that is recharged by a thin film solar array. It draws little power and covers a good portion of the east end of Vanua Levu.

What can I say, the Uniden DSC-BK Marine Radio is affordable and offers everything a boat owner looks for in a marine radio. We installed it to our 21 foot bass boat, which of course matches perfectly since the boat and interior are black. I highly recommend to invest in an antenna to get better reception and have "piece of mind" that your call will be heard. We went with the TRAM 1610-HC 5-Ft VHF Marine Antenna. Installation was simple and the cables were long enough to reach the antenna and battery. The unit also comes with microphone hanger.

Has a very large well lit display, it can even be seen in direct sunlight. Volume can be really cranked up. We live in New York and are very close to the Canadian border. Every time we are on Lake Erie we are able to hear both the US and Canadian frequencies. I giggle every time I see the distress button since it reminds me of a school fire alarm. You have to flip up the plastic tap to reveal the distress button. According to the instructions, the distress signal can be heard from 20 nautical miles away, or as my husband puts it "20-25 miles as the bird flies".

Now we can feel safe when boating on the Great Lakes. Uniden is know for their reputable products and are built to last.

I bought this radio as a safety feature on my boat to be used while fishing off the Oregon coast. I have been out as far as 16 miles and have had excellent reception so I'm very satisfied. Price was good and radio size fit perfect in the position I choose.
