Waterproof specifications The Atlantis 270 is a submersible radio, complying with floating JIS7/IPX7 water-resistant standards. The radio can be submerged in 1 meter of water for 30 minutes without damage. This radio is great when camping, hiking, or rafting. After the radio is submerged in water, the sound may appear distorted from water still remaining in and around the speaker and microphone. Just shake the radio to clear excess water, and the sound should return to normal. If your radio is exposed to salt water, clean it thoroughly with fresh water and dry it before turning it on. The charger is not waterproof. All NOAA Weather Channels with Weather Alert This radio comes pre-programmed with NOAA weather channels. The Emergency/Weather Alert allows it to function as a severe weather warning radio and will also alert you to any local or national emergencies. If the NOAA issues warning while this feature is turned On, the radio sounds an alert tone. You will then hear the emergency/weather broadcast.

Going back immediately! While this may be a fine radio, it is not as described on the Amazon page. Amazon claims this radio has GPS capability as well as a AAA size battery backup capability, which is exactly why I bought this radio. Once it arrived and I looked at it, none of these features are offered for this particular model. Extremely unhappy as I planned on using this radio over the upcoming holiday weekend. ..
I coach novice rowers, and I have to be able to communicate with the other coaches while we are out in safety launches. This unit is far superior to the more expensive radios our club had purchased for this purpose; it gives me greater range and much better sound quality. My peers covet my radio, and I have been sending them to Amazon to purchase this radio for themselves.
