Ok ,,My SOTA is Sea Level On The Air(SOTA). Joke !!!!
Anyway I am checking my 70cm FT-277 that is “Waterproof OK or NOT?”
Today saling condition is SW 15tknt ~19knt. fine day.
This wind speed is hard to old man..Lol I would always sinking or dive into the sea.
1m was sunk when I dive into the sea.
FT-277 has attached to the waist harness.
So It is good for Waterproof test.
*I fell three times. dive into the sea(In the gusts).
*Submersion time: 2 ~ 10 minutes.
No problem sending and receiving.
There is no water in the battery box.
No wet EX DC .
When wet with sea water, and wash with fresh water always.
Frequency dial and volume that you do not use frequently on the beach of the strong wind.
Small sand will get into. PTT is OK.
FT-277 Spec: Same as FT-270 2m FM.
Waterproof performance of (born in submergence of about 30 minutes at depths 1m) IPX7 equivalent
|wash with fresh water|
