Your radio provides the following key features:
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 sealing plugs are well maintained and correctly fitted. This means that the speaker microphone is attached or the sealing plug is fitted, and the battery pack (or case) and antenna are attached and securely fastened.
♦ After your radio is submerged in water, you might notice that the sound is 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 will return to normal.
♦ If your radio is exposed to salt water, clean it thoroughly with fresh water.
♦ The charging equipment is not waterproof.
