I own a TGUV2 from DX but I have friends that are not familiar with PC programming and therefore would like to buy Walkies Talkie on marine band (VHF 138 /174 MHz) that are very simple to operate. The kind you press a button to select channel and press to talk kind. Would anyone know if DX or any other Chinese company as some of those already programmed?
Thanks

Virtually any ship's chandler or marine (boating) supply company sells Marine Band HTs. They are channelized and transmit/receive only the marine channels, no programming is necessary.

Lots of companies make them and many sell for under $100.

 I don't know about Canada,  but in the  US  the only place you can us a Marine radio  is      on board a boat.   
the only land based locations that can use marine radios is   bridge tenders, coast guard,  corp of engineers and  specific  Marina operators..
Not for  idle  chit chat..
