8W Waterproof Handheld (IP67)
This radio is a moderate priced waterproof handheld that is a good value and can be a primary radio or solid secondary radio if you have a vehicle mounted radio. Compared to our 5W handheld, this radio has a few more features – critically it is IP67 rated for water resistance – and is larger with a somewhat easier to use menu system and user interface. It has an enhanced range when compared to our 5W model, but falls short on range when compared to more powerful handhelds (soon to come to our site) or vehicle mounted radios.
