There have been a few times when I’d have given a lot to be able to replay a VHF call. This submersible handheld constantly records the last 60 seconds of transmissions that have broken squelch on whatever channel(s) you are tuned to or scanning, which you can recall at the press of a key. It also has excellent audio, with a beefy internal speaker and a bass-boost function that amplifies low-pitched sound. Maximum output is 6W, and the lithium-ion battery is good for 16 hours of use. Built-in active noise cancelling is said to reduce background noise by up to 90 percent.
