FLOATING VHF MARINE RADIO
Complies with floating JIS8/IPX8 water-resistant standards, which means the radio can be submerged in 1.5 meters of water for 30 minutes without damage.
The radio will only meet this rating if fully assembled and all rubber seals and bungs are well maintained and correctly fitted. This means that the speaker microphone bung is inserted, and the battery pack (or case) and antenna are attached and securely fastened.
After your radio is submerged in water, the sound might be distorted. This is because there is still water remaining in and around the speaker and microphone. Just shake the radio to clear excess water, and the sound should return to normal.
If your radio is exposured to salt water, clean it thoroughly with fresh water and dry it before turning it on.
The charger is not waterproof.
