You cant go far wrong with Icom stuff.
99.9% of Ribneters would agree.
If the 505 had been out, I would have got one instead of my mighty fine 421.

My point exactly. IP56 should be enough for a fixed radio.

On the other hand, I would like my hand held to survive a fortnight at 100m (IPXn, where n is a large nimber), 'cos its more likely to go over the side.

Jim and Dave seem to stalk me.
Where ever I go they are there!
Mind you could be me stalking them!

The added advantage of IPX8 is that it will put up with life on an open boat even better than an IPX7 radio.

Might even make it Rouge proof................ok maybe not
