Rated 5 out of 5 by EricinSanDiego Excellent Purchase
I bought this radio as a backup to the main radio in my boat. I ended up using it as a travel radio on the road down into Baja this summer. Worked great for this and to stay in touch with friends who were staying in a nearby motel. I liked the piece of mind a good radio provided. Very clear signal and the battery life was great too.

This is the 2nd one I have purchased in 5-yrs. I still have the first one and just had to replace the rechargable battery this past fall. Use this unit almost weekley and it has been very dependable and a strong unit.

The unit seems to work good, I can't tell how far its getting out, but conversation with boats in my area are crisp and clear. It definitely beats installing radios and big antennas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lunchwagon Nice Radio!
Well, so far so good. The radio is just as described. It receives the NOAA weather channels great. I haven't had it in the boat on the water yet, so I can't comment on how well it transmits/receives. According to the rules of use for this thing, using it on land is illegal :)
I haven't had the guts to dunk it in water, and I hope it never gets wet, but it sure looks like it could handle it if it did. Perfect radio for what I need it for.
