Hi David,
My recommendation is Standard Horizon HX890. Very good radio that I own two of them now.
Few highlights are.
Floating radio. Built-in GPS. Program your MMSI number. DSC (Digital Selective Calling)
Support AAA battery cartridge. 3 year manufacture warranty.

Also I’ve seen several club members using newer HX890 model as well as previous HX870 series.
I bought mine from Steveston Marine. Current price is $289.99

Good luck,
