    the two way radio.. I use them when out at sea fishing on my kayak.. till now i have borrowed them or one of the other guys would have one but it seems its time i should get my own but am unsure of the various makes and model.. there are plenty out there but i would not know what is a good value for money one over which ones has lots of flashing lights but is actually complete pants to use..

    on marine band or just uhf/vhf?

    you can actually get a zip up type plastic bag that fits the radio and makes it waterproof.

    plus the waterproof radio's dont usually float unless you go for mil spec at a vast expence.

    not interested in having it in a bag, its needs to be tidily clipped to my pfd vest or my crate and easily accessible. Each one i have seen that the owner has claimed will float has been demonstrated by being chucked in the sea, and floated.... I am going to take a look at some this afternoon, just going to have to take the shops word for it a good one though, was hoping to find one with gps so its easier to find me if there is and problem..

    If you're going that far out for sea fishing, you'll need a ship portable license which'll enable you to use them in the first place. You'll then be issued with a callsign that the coastguard or any other vessel will be able to identify you by, but you will also need a maritime radio operators licence (or take someone with you that has one).

    You might want to check this out:

    If you're looking for one with GPS, u need to make sure it satisfies the minimum GMDSS criteria also. Its a strange area and there are heavy fines involved too.
