Battery won't charge
Pros: Good size.
Cons: Won't charge on the included car charger. Uniden will replace it.
Other Thoughts: Antonline in the Newegg Marketplace is another issue. Not easy to work with. E-mails go to spam and everything is overly automated. Never got the RMA and now I have to take care of this myself. I will only buy from Newegg, not form the Marketplace.

Not JIS8, only JIS7
Pros: Literally a life saver if you're in a place where VHF communication is monitored, and you're otherwise incapacitated. Used mine last summer when my machine broke down 10 miles out on the tundra, and I forgot my tools. VHF communication is used by the local Volunteer Search and Rescue unit, monitored 24/7 here. Always bring a Personal Locator Beacon if you can!(for emergencies). Highly water resistant(even waterproof perhaps), but not sure if it can really be considered submersible(see cons). Highly mobile.
Cons: Since this is a handheld, your range is limited to the altitude you can achieve, i.e. on/in hills/trees. Taller antennae on nearby monitoring stations help to receive and relay your signal. Despite being "submersible", this unit does not operate well *underwater*, as water naturally inhibits the transmission of VHF signals.
Other Thoughts: There are some discrepancies on the title and description for this device. The title indicates it is *submersible*. The description states it satisfies JIS8 standards, which would be correct. However, directly after the statement about the JIS8 rating, in parentheses, it says(5' 30 mins). Something is incorrect here. 5 feet(1 meter), for 30 minutes is actually the specification for JIS7, which is one rank lower in terms of submersible ratings. This unit does perform admirably in extremely wet conditions.
