G4NSJ – AnyTone AT-588 VHF 136-174MHz


The AnyTone AT-588 is basically a 2 metre transceiver covering 136-174MHz. I use this radio solely for listening the the marine VHF channels. I scan around 60 channels in the memory so I don’t miss anything going on in the English Channel. I use a dedicated marine antenna on a pole down the garden which is fine as the sea is only a mile south of my QTH and the solent around 35 miles to the west. Contrary to popular belief, there’s still a lot of interesting comms on the marine channels.
