The other day I picked up a set of waterproof GMRS two-way radios, something I’ve wanted for some time & thanks to birthday bucks from my family encouraged me to go ahead and get them. They will make a great addition to our paddle trips. Managed to test them out last week when we went kayak fishing. Excellent audio clearity, weather band 24hrs a day, 56km range (under ideal conditions) and best of all waterproof and they float. found these Motorola Talkabout MS560 at London Drugs Click here for more info (The US version is much the same but with the repeater function the MR350R).
