A VHF Handheld To Float With

Navagear brings us info on Standard’s new floating handheld VHF:

Standard Horizon HX850S VHF/GPS DSC Floating Submersible RadioStandard Horizon HX850S VHF/GPS DSC Floating RadioNot that I spend a lot of waking OR sleeping hours dreaming about handheld VHF radios, mind you. Still, this thing is pretty dang cool.

Behold the Standard Horizon HX850S VHF/GPS DSC Floating Submersible Radio. I’d link to the manufacturer’s site, but there isn’t any info about this model up there yet?!

Apparently, there’s actually a good reason for this. After berating Standard-Horizon for their lack of a press release about this new product, Panbo learned that Standard-Horizon is still awaiting final FCC certification for the product. Oh golly, not another cool product in limbo because of the FCC!!

Thanks Tim.
