We use 2 SOT kayaks for fishing mostly in bays on lakes, occasionally in coastal areas.
Can someone recommended what sort of comms we should be using to stay in touch as we often split up and go into different bays on the lake?
Initially we thought about waterproof walkie talkies, however I don't know if they work on line of sight? Will they work if one of us is around the corner in a bay and seperated by a strip of land and a hill in between? Then I thought of VHS radios but won't we need to do special courses to be able to use these? Basically want a way to keep in touch between the 2 kayaks but would be great if we could use them to call for help if needed.
Mobile phones not known to work well with water and the reception is unreliable.
Anyone have any suggestions or links to more information?
