Good submersible rating, though I can't say it has had a lot of wet time because it is the older, bigger one. Just a bit too much to be easy on a PFD mounting. But I think this unit is at least 8 years old now and it keeps going while we have had to replace the equivalent West Marine unit.
There was one time some years ago when NOAA put out a bad update and the ICOM unit we had was the only one in a household of four that could pick up the one station that had caught and corrected the error. It was only Ellesworth that had noticed the error and restored the old software until NOAA figured it out, all of the other stations like Gray Maine had the problem.
