When it says waterproof does it mean you can put a hose on the face of the radio to wash it down. I tend to spray from a long way to stop water being forced in but this doesn't wash the salt out of all the little crevices !
Well depends on the make.
I know you can with an Icom and I flush our kit off every evening so I know the Standard Horizon stuff can take it too.
Not sure about the rest.
If it says it is waterproof then it should take a flush off.
