The Waterproof Radio that Fits in Any Environment
Motorola's Talkabout® MS355 is by no means a fair weather radio. On the contrary, it is a high performance, ultra durable waterproof radio that's right for the extreme outdoors. With a range of up to 35 miles* and packed with every possible radio feature, it's hard to believe such value at such competitive pricing.
Water Proof - Survives Water Dunks & Heavy Down Pours
Fishing, kayaking, swimming or simply heading for a great day of fun with family or friends near the water? How about skiing down your favorite ski slope or hunting during that unexpected heavy down pour? The Motorola MS355 2-Way waterproof radio is a must have to ensure you have a reliable means of communication under harsh weather conditions. Don't worry about transmission failure when it makes contact with water. Its IP-67** standard withstands constant submersion of up to 1m for 30 minutes and repels the heaviest of rain droplets.
It Floats ** – Makes for Easy Recovery
If your MS355 radio happens to fall into the water, don't despair. Through meticulous engineering, the radio floats and is visible on the water surface. Once recovered, use your MS355 radio to keep talking and listening.
Headset Connector** – Use with Your Favorite Audio Accessories
Hands-free devices provide you with many advantages, the main ones being discreet communication, sound enhancement in noisy environments, and the ability to multitask. The MS355 waterproof radio is equipped with a headset jack connector ready for use with any of your favorite Motorola audio accessories.
Earbud with Push-to-Talk Microphone-Unrestricted Communication
Exploring the wild or simply enjoying your outdoor passion? Use your earbuds as a convenient clutter-free way to speak and listen to other two-way radio users. Designed to comfortably fit in your ear, just plug the earbud connector into your MS355 radio and snap it to your lapel or shirt. Experience an unrestricted and discreet way to communicate when the pleasure of nature captivates you.
Repeater Function - Improves Your Coverage Beyond the Horizon
Maximize your camping, sporting or hunting experience by improving your radio transmission coverage when talking to family or group members who sometimes wander far beyond the line of sight. Thanks to the built-in repeater channels, the MS355 works well with a local repeater station to carry your signal further. Take advantage of this value-added feature by switching to GMRS*** channels 15R-22R, but don't forget you'll need a GMRS license and an accessible repeater station to take advantage of this unique feature.
NOAA **** Weather Channel
Want to keep in touch with changing weather conditions during your family camping adventure? N o need to stop the fun - weather alerts will provide your group with warnings of incoming storms or dangerous conditions. And, by tuning in to one of 7 NOAA channels (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) on your MS355, you will always know what to pack with continuous local and regional weather broadcasting.
