Looking for a bargain floating, submersible handheld VHF?

I came across this today from Defender.* It's a Standard Horizon Floating HH model with selectable 5W/1W output.*

Its minimum advertised price is $129, but when you place it in your cart, it's $108.89.* Then there's a $20 mail-in rebate which makes it just less than $90.

That's a good deal for a name brand full powered floating VHF radio.*

Well, then I'm sure it's a MUCH nicer one than these cheapo versions.* *

I paid about the same as these for a cheap 2W non-floating model.* I'm feeling about the same as you, Mark!*
