Are your waterproof marine radios really waterproof?

Are your waterproof marine radios really waterproof?

They are conditionally waterproof. For example, the Retevis RA26 can withstand being submerged in one metre of water (about 3ft) for 30 minutes with no water intrusion. If the radio ever goes overboard, you should retrieve it as soon as possible. Remember that even submarines will get crushed if they submerge beyond certain depth. We make quality radios, but we cannot change the laws of physics!

If your Retevis radio does get submerged then a good practice is to rinse the radio with tap water and dry thoroughly to prevent a salt build up as salt can cause serious corrosion. After repeated exposure to spray all battery contacts should be inspected, cleaned and lightly greased. Knobs should also be removed and control shafts cleaned and re-greased likewise. After any exposure to moisture the radio should be thoroughly dried.
