Cobra HH500 FLOATING Handheld VHF Marine Radio (Bluetooth)
Handheld Floating VHF Radio with Bluetooth® so no problem if you drop it overboard and with its Orange Core its visible as well, and the Bluetooth® means you can leave the Mobile Phone in the dry. Has some very clever features normally found on more expensive radios like Noise Cancelling Microphone, BURP you say whats 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 those features.
