....tired of the tranquility of complete silence?
....afraid you'll miss a current event while you piss away your precious time amid the mundane aquatic life?
....Spearos, looking for something to moisten the arid intermissions between shots?

Well it's finally here!!!

The manufacturers were listening, and they have answered our pleas.

yeah no good for diving only 33ft. But good for apnea in pool.

The forgot to mention that the ocean absorbs radio waves. You'd lose all reception at around 1 or 2m.

However, I have heard of an mp3 player for scuba divers which you can take deep.

Hey guys,

It sounds like a great invention but when under 30+ feet, the radio seems like a waste of money and time.

The underwater world provides an array of spectacle for anyone to enjoy. For those that are freediving you'll need 100% complete concentration on your skills and apnea endurance (very demanding).
Spearfishermen (women too!) need complete silence and no distraction in order for 'a' fish to approach and attain a 'winning shot.'

That's my thought on this "toy".
radio is crazy

Why don't we take it one step further and incorporate a dvd player like I've seen in some vehicles. If the ocean isn't stimulating enough then find a new place to dive. The fish would probably complain at the sound of some of the gibberish they play on the radio nowadays.
Sorry international folks. I must backtrack here for a second and start by explaining that here in the States we fancy a good mocking. Perhaps my sarcasm wasn't applied thick enough to permeate our cultural or linguistic barriers :D :hmm. I fear that Bindlestich was the only one to pick up on it (must be a midwest thing).

Rest assured....I was being sardonic. The only waves I appreciate are the ones in the water. :D


We British Invented Sarcasm

Don't worry - there were more that spotted it! We just didn't reply because it wasn't necessary to discuss it, since it is such a joke!


This looks like it was invented by people who still believe in snorkelling - i.e. never leaving the surface

I think this subject has been overdone now!

We all gave our opinion's on the matter and some have given some reasonable answers.
Guys, let's move on to another topic.
Sharks would Love these Things

Great White Sharks have something called the Ampullae of Lorenzini, extra sensors on their big snouts that biologists believe are highly tuned into electrical wavelengths. Sharks can sense the electricity generated by a fish or seal's muscles from great distances.

I freedive and surf in the Red Triangle and would not wear one of these things in the water if you paid me. They key is to keep a low profile around here, not to advertise your presence with a bunch of erratic electrical pulses. The thing probably sounds just like an injured tuna or something.
True!! You need to be totally 'silent', hence the term-"silent hunter."
Any electrical sound waves will only cause and promote attention to yourself. You don't need any type of shark travelling from a far distance to come up and inspect a 'disturbance' in his realm of the abyss.

"We like to play in the ocean, but not to make waves.";)
