Ok last week I went out with a group. We got some wave action at times 2’ close to three maybe at times starting to crest leaving some whitecaps. Enough to give you spray in your face at times. Fairly heavy rain at times. This lead to one or more of the radios not being clear enough to understand in 15 -20 mph wind. Seems like mic or speakers got wet. I think mine were ok (Standard Horizons 850 & 851) but some were not. We were wearing the radios not sure of the brands but experienced kayakers. I wanted to investigate further but everyone was loading and leaving.
I will take mine and dunk / spray them tomorrow for a test. Any solutions? I like to keep it on my PFD and not bag it in case I need it fast.
Is there any communications with whistles except blow if in trouble?
