Handheld Floating VHF Radio, so no problem if you drop it overboard and with its Orange Core its visible as well.
Has some very clever features normally found on more expensive radios like Noise Cancelling Microphone, BURP, you say what’s that? Well it vibrates the water out of the speaker, clever eh!
Complete with 1000 mAh Lithium Ion Rechargable Battery, Locking Desktop Charger with AC/DC Adaptors, Removable Spring loaded Belt Clip and a Powerful 6 Watt transmit, definitely great value for all the features.
