Uniden 2872-2CK and GMR 2875-2CK Waterproof, Floating Two-Way Radios
28-Mile Submersible GMRS/FRS Two-Way Radios Can Be in 3 Feet of Water for 30 Minutes With No Damage
Uniden today is introducing two new waterproof GMRS/FRS two-way radios. Built to the JIS-7 standard, these rugged radios can be submersed in three feet of water for up to 30 minutes. The radios are also designed to float, making them ideal for use in a variety of weather conditions, outdoor activities and environments.
With a maximum range of 28 miles, these models are packed with all the features consumers have come to expect from Uniden’s two-way radios. The radios allow for 6,270 channel combinations to ensure secure communications that are free from interference. Features such as Channel Scan, Channel Monitor, large buttons and an over-sized backlit display ensure ease of use in any situation. Uniden’s Direct Call feature allows users to call one person in a group without calling everyone, while the innovative Auto Channel Change feature funnels everyone in a user group to a new channel to avoid interference when radio traffic is heavy.
