None of the major brands seem to have any marine radios on sale that include channel 0 - so my query is about how they source them? I would not have thought reprogramming is anything other than a factory option, not even dealers would have any need to change the programming - even though most have UK/America/US channels already in them - apart oddly from channel 37 and the two M channels which often get missed out!
