any hints tips

I have bought the above radio as I wish to LISTEN to marine radio when I am out and about near River Mersey and Manchester Ship Canal.

I took it out for the first time yesterday [4th Jan] and I was able to listen in to vessels and lock transmissions at Eastham, all very interesting.

I have a few frequences that I can listen to various things on, its not the easiest unit to program them in to memory so I intend doing this via a cable to my pc [when it arrives]

have also ordered an NA771 Antenna too

on my way there I had a listen in the FM Uplink for Mcr Airport Tower 455.550, I am not into planes but it was interesting anyway, I can just about get some transmissions from home and combined with flightradar on the pc, I heard a plane from 6m away.

any hints or tips will be welcomed.

m8 i have numerous of these and while not a bad radio they don't seem to last long.

QSB is the frustration of the nation.
