    I want to mount a rig on my motorbike. I know there was a purpose built rig FTM-10SR few years ago, but I was living out of the country and now that I m back it is no longer available. Any recommendations?

    I ran into this looking for a snowmobile radio for winter public service events.
    The FTM-10SR are selling for big $, IF you find one.

    I can buy a marine VHF that's waterproof for <$150. Yeah we know they make millions of them because the market is larger, but can't someone make and sell a 2meter waterproof for $300??

    My solution is I'm going to put a radio in an ammo can and bungy it on the back rack. If you go that route on your bike....... please post pictures!! ;)

    Several of the Yaesu HT's are submersible. And, for more power, you could add a brick in a water proof compartment.

    Agree. If it was me I would go with a Yaesu HT.
