Waterproof walkie talkie for boating and fishing
Boating is the leisurely activity of traveling by boat or the recreational use of a boat whether powerboats, sailboats, or man-powered vessels.
(such as rowing and paddle boats), focused on the travel itself, as well as sports activities, such as fishing or waterskiing.
It is a popular activity, and there are millions of boaters worldwide.
A Waterproof walkie talkie is a necessary tool for Boating enthusiasts and folks who like to fish.
When they out in a different boat, you can imagine if they want to talk to each other,
such as they will say”hey, watch, Here is a fish!” or “Do you have any bait there?”Or other somethings need to communication,
How do they hear each other over the loud sound of running water? Shouting across the water? Maybe it does not work.
At this point, the Walkie-talkies are perfect for this scenario.
You can use the walkie talkie to transmit the information with louder and clearer sounds.
So which one kind of walkie talkie is right for you?
I think the waterproof function is more important.
Because waterproof two-way radio could not only withstand splashes water or falling droplets of radio but also could also be submerged in water for a certain time without losing their functionality.
Retevis offers more kinds of two-way radios for boating enthusiasts, all of them is IP67 waterproof walkie talkie.
Today We only recommend two representative ones, RT50 and RT29.
RT29 is an analog radio, it is easy to use, and it has two versions- VHF&UHF.
If you just use it on a boat, you can choose the VHF, it supports long-range communication.
It also has Rechargeable 3200mAh battery and Low battery alert, will remind you to replace the battery.
You won’t have to worry about running out of battery power for a short time.
The emergency alarms provide you with another layer of protection.
The VOX function can make you hands-free, it allows you to operate by voice activation when you are busy without pressing the PPT, such as you are fishing.
RT50 also is a waterproof two-way radio, but it has two differences with RT29.
1. RT50 is a DMR(Digital Dual Time UHF Radio).
RT50 is featured with 198 channels and groups calls of private call; Group call and all call.
It can allow you to chat with the different group at the same time.
It also has a 2-time slot, which allows a user to call partners without interference even if you and other irrelevant people are in the same public channel.
2. RT50 have a LED Invisible display, If your radio is off, It looks like a walkie talkie without a screen.
When you turn on your radio, you will see there is a channel number on the screen.
It is very convenient for you to know what your current channel is.
Besides, as a DMR radio, RT50 uses Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) Tier 2 Standard protocol.
It is not only can compatible with any existing analog two-way radio operating on the supported UHF frequencies for easy migration to digital technology,
but also can compatible with the popular MOTO TRBO series radios using standard encryption, as well as other makes and models of DMR supported radios.
In conclusion, if you want to buy an IP67 walkie talkie just only for boating and personal use, no need very complex functionality, the RT29 is enough.
If you want to get a DMR radio, and have more functions, you can choose RT50, It would be a great choice.
