ICOM MC-304 VHF Radio - New in box $125.00
I purchased this radio as an emergency back-up to my ICOM IC-M502 radio when I had to hire somebody to bring my boat back from the islands after I was Med-evac'ed back to Orlando.
So it was never used and never even out of its original box. It cost me about $200 from West Marine.
