As far as I recall, going back to the 60's when I was a marine radio officer, VHF radios had to be 'idiot proof', so that they could be used in an emergency by any unskilled person on the bridge of a ship. One switch for Ch.16 and a fixed squelch and volume so that it could not be muted. You could select any channel number, but not frequencies, you didn't need to know anything, the coast radio station would tell you the working channel to switch to, usually 21 or 22. No need for callsigns, the call was the ship name. Certainly no out-of-band selection.

I'm curious while not having used the 400 if it is capable of repeater use on 2 mtrs.

Yes it is, up to 40 different memory slots. You just have to enter both transmit and receive frequencies, instead of a receive and offset, like you do for an amateur radio. It supports PL and DPL as well, both encode and decode.

Default Marine Radios That Will Accept Non Marine Frequencies

I got side tracked by other projects, but now that spring is getting close, I am getting interested in this again. Two questions:

-Does the Standard Horizon HX400, at 40, have the highest channel capacity for land mobile channels?

-Are there any marine radio portables that have Bluetooth capability yet?

There's a lot of legal marine radio use on land. But I think I know what you meant.

Its perfectly legal to use marine frequencies on land if you have a shore station license. If you do work for or with a US Govt agency you can also get licensed throguh the NTIA for a Fixed Land Station license.
