A Quick Look at The Retevis RT-85 Handheld Radio.
This models seems to have some issues with the squelch and receiver sensitivity on certain frequencies. While I really like Retevis radios this one might not be a good choice, unless someone can tell me what causes the issue... I verified the frequency of the marine channel frequency and tried in wide and narrow FM.
