This radio is great for wearing on your belt or vest. I was worried it would be heavy but its really light and compact compared to my sister's full sized Uniden. There are a lot more options with this radio then the older models.
Very good Uniden Compact Hand-Held JIS8 Submersible Marine Radio. Would recommend buying.
Great price, great product, nice size!!
The Marine Radio is good however Walmart lists it as a JIS8 which is not the model number it is a MHS75 Uniden the JIS8 is the water resistance rating of this unit. It only comes with a DC charger with a cigarette lighter plug no AC adapter or charging cradle at all. You have to buy a AC charging adapter that costs $27 from Uniden with shipping and it is not a cradle just a adapter you plug the included DC charger in. If I had to do it over I would buy another brand like Standard Horizion that comes with a AC charging cradle. Fir this reason I do not recommend this unit. Who wants to take the radio to your car to charge it when you use it ?
Works as expected.
I use this radio for kayaking since I have no telephone signal in the bay. Easy to use and compact. Can scan weather alerts and 16/9 and other channels. Has three power settings. Unit is submersible, didn't test that feature, I still bought a waterproof case that allows me to use it without taking it out of case.
Met all expectations
I have tried everything but getting it wet. That willl happen in time I am sure and will just *assume* that it will continue to work.
Speaker is loud & clear.
I have talked to Newport harbor from Wickford harbor using low power (1W).
Small & lightweight, I keep it clipped to my life vest and don't even feel it.
If I ever fall overboard it's a great comfort to know the waterproof radio will be there on my life vest.
Radio works great. Excellent radio for your money. Would recommend to any boater
Works good, no issues.
This hand held radio will only reach other radios of this type within only a 1000 feet. Will return for credit.
Easy to use, full of features, good price The radio itself feels cheap and fragile to the touch
