The lightweight MHS 235 radio is fully submersible and waterproof* and is so simple to use.
The unit allows you to switch output power levels from a 1 Watt output (to preserve the life of the battery) through to a 2.5 Watt and a 6 Watt maximum output power. The large LCD display is backlit for easy viewing at night or in low light conditions. It also has a built-in GPS with Class D DSC features. You can add your favourite locations to find that great little fishing spot again!
The radio has an emergency (SOS) strobe light and torchlight with glow-in-the-dark seals and keys. It is ideal for all boating and marine applications and has a talk time of up to 11 hours.
1 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.
* Waterproof: Meets the world standard JIS8 level. Being defined as having no ingress of water when immersed at 1.5 metre for 60 minutes. All accessories are not waterproof.
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 exposed to salt water, clean it thoroughly with fresh water and dry it before turning it on.
The charger is not waterproof.
