Fully Submersible – 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 Remove 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.

Easy to see large LCD – The large, easy to see LCD (32 × 16 mm) offers a clear 2-digit channel number indication.

Dual / Tri-Watch Function – Allows you to monitors Channel 16 and / or a call channel while you are receiving on another channel.

Volume loud and mute functions – The volume loud/mute functions temporarily change the volume to the maximum/minimum level with two touches of a button. Depending on the background noise level, you can easily change the volume level to capture the received message.
