HaHa! Well they do have helicopters. Still your neighbor with DSC can get the alert as well. This is a fairly gear friendly site we like our complications.

I have used a handheld on my Precision since purchased. Best thing I did was connect it to an antenna clamped to the stern rail and a quick connect coupler, range increase was amazing. Hung the radio on the backstay in easy reach.Antenna in this photo is 7 ft., hidden by the backstay, wire is long enough to have radio in the cabin if wanted.

Bought an Icom M-25 and couldn't be happier. Around $100.00, and floats. You can program an alarm into it to flash and scream at you when it goes overboard to help find it. That feature does work. Couldn't resist the temptation to throw it in to see if it floated and the alarms would go off
