Cobra Electronics VHF radios


What good is a hand-held VHF radio if it's lost overboard and sinks? Two new radios from Cobra Electronics - the MR HH330 FLT and Bluetooth-equipped MR HH475 FLT BT - are capable of floating.


Plus, their bright-orange cases make them easy to spot. These models operate with 6 watts of power, enabling long-range communication, according to the company. A noise-canceling microphone blocks background noises and a "burp" feature vibrates, pushing water out of the speaker grill. The MR HH475 FLT BT incorporates MicroBlue technology for Bluetooth wireless capabilities. The hand-helds provide 24-hour access to NOAA's national all-hazards and weather information, as well as channel 16. Each unit comes with a lithium-ion rechargeable battery, locking desktop charger with AC/DC adapters and a spring-loaded, swiveling belt clip. Cobra Marine's MR HH330 FLT retails for $129.95, and the Bluetooth model is $179.95. Contact: Cobra Electronics, (773) 889-8870.
