The RCA MR240 Marine Portable is a commercial grade, 5 Watt VHF marine radio designed with fully submersible IPX7 body. It floats and flashes when dropped in water. If you drop this floating radio overboard, it’s easier to find than ever, day or night.
Fully submersible construction equivalent to IPX7 for 1m depth for up to 30 minutes.
Floating and Flashing
At the bottom of each radio is a light that blinks while floating in the water. The LED light is noticeable in the dark (like a flashing fishing float) so the radio can easily be found while in the water. The light works even when the radio is turned OFF.
Vibrates to Removes Water from the Speaker
The RCA MR240 comes standard with a new technology that helps clears water from the speaker. This vibrating function emits a vibrating beep that helps remove water, which can muffle the sound coming from the speaker, from the speaker housing.
Small and Light
The MR240 has a very compact and lightweight design yet delivering full 5 watts of power.
Energy-Saving 3.7V Circuit
Powered by a slim 3.7V Lithium-Ion battery pack, B2415LI, that reduces the size, weight of the radio and produces full 5 Watts of Power alongside a powerful and clear 600mW audio. The battery provides 10 hours of operating time.
