I have a Cobra like Nick mentioned. Wouldn't necessarily recommend it. V. Low transmit power (2 W max) may be just when you need it that it is important. The waterproof bag that came with it split.
As a spare, or for local comms it is fine.
Which channels do you need for the lock? Cobra doesn't have 37/M M2
I suspect the midland will be similar - although higher power.
Both are just splashproof - don't drop it in the water, or go overboard with it in your pocket...
Finally my cobra circuit board developed a curve which caused it to lock the ptt on last summer. I stipped it down and refitted the board with a washer to straighten it out and its been fine since. But you get what you pay for!
