I saw one advertised in a fishing mag the other day that says it floats. I don't remember brand name. I will have a look at see if I can find it again.

the jaycar one i mentioned:

http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.as ... &SUBCATID=

I can get you one of these for around $150 delivered to your door. they obviously wont be of the same calibre as teh icom but its something to compare against.

if you want something to keep on your person for emergencies, i reckon its got to be waterproof. Icom is the way to go
