[NYCkayaker] NYCKayaker Digest, Vol 94, Issue 30

I used the standard HX851.

A couple of points once you spend a few dollars or a few hundred remember to:

1) Rinse you radio with fresh water.  The first thing to go wrong with these radios even though they are water proof is the Speaker.

2) Spend the $30.00 dollars and get a plastic radio case for it. Much cheaper to replace than buying a new radio because the speaker starts to go bad.

All the best,

Taino
