I got a Cobra handheld VHF radio for Christmas.I am wondering if anyone can offer some advice on how to use it for safety/weather info as well as angling help. I haven't read the manual yet but plan to. Primary use for me will be to have on boardmy small boat in case I get in a bind. I rarely leave the Pass. Unit is charging now (initial charge for the battery). In the day and age of the cell phone I figure this thing will be a good back up and maybe I can listen to all the boaters out there with it while I'm chilling here at homeon Innerarity Point? Might be fun during cobia season according to my buddy The Blue Hoo.
