Got my Standard Horizon vhf and so far very pleased with it.

Only surprise is that the manual states the dry cell case (for AA’s) is ‘not to be used with rechargeable cells – does not contain the thremal and over-current protection circuits required when utilizing Ni-Cd and Ni-Mh cells’.

I will freely admit to knowing next to nothing about anything electrical, but does anyone know if this is correct? Using (disposable) alkalines goes completely against the grain.
