Almost 75 Watts

ICOM IC-V8000, Mobile VHF Transceiver

My Icom IC-V8000 never transmitted 75 watts, only about 72, but it didn't really bother me as I almost never used high power anyway. I was warned not to use high power for long rag chews or long keyed periods. I would have liked to have a 50 watt setting. I really like the front mounted speaker, in my mobile installation, I think it was the difference between needing an external speaker and not. I also like the multifunction microphone that allowed allowed you to set just about every setting on the rig with the mic. Even though I had two of them fail on me, I still like it, but I do keep a spare, they are easy to find 2nd hand. My V-8000 is now a backup radio and I don't use it every day, but it is one I'll keep around for the foreseeable future.
