That means that you have to use both hands for the radio. All radios should be able to be SET to either US or International. Please don't go the handheld way, the height of the aerial for VHF - line of sight- is critical. I would keep your new radio, the technology has been changing quite a bit over the last few years. For some reason, maybe turning the main battery switch off (? ..or maybe im just presssing the buttons by accident...)) the radio defaults to not INTL. Switching it to INTL leaves it there until...I don't know what or why yet. Still working through that. Yeah, the new one woudl fit better as well....Still a work in progress. Appreciate the advice Quote Link to post Share on other sites
