Purchased this for use in Florida which has not yet happened. Unit charged easily and handles well. Listening to local weather NOAA reports shows it has good sound quality for a handheld radio. manual seems easy to understand and programming of the various features seems rather straight forward. Need to give it a "float" and water resistant test before taking out on ocean. Will do this is a couple of days.

Great Radio for the $$$
I purchased this radio for use during hunting season in Va. I have used it for several days(from Daylight to dark) on the Lo setting withouit having to re-charge the battery. Radio has several days of being rained on however I have not dunked it yet and has held up very well. Radio works very well and has very good reception in dense timber. Radio is not very heavy and is easy to handle. I really like the channel lock feature which helps prevent accidently bumping the selector to a different channel. Cobra made an excellent radio when they made this unit.

Broke after first outing.
Got this unit based on features (waterproof/floating) and price. Unit looked nice and felt solid. Charged and set up as instructed in manual. Took out on ocean in kayak for a few hours. Was working when I left and not when I returned. May have gotten splashed but not submerged or anything close to it. Obviously disappointed. Returned to BPS.
