Re: Marine handheld small enough to fit in life jacket?

I'm not a fan of the built in GPS/DSC functions for a hand held... I've outlined why elsewhere in the forum.

regarding a small handheld that would be appropriate for a belt, iCom makes a model that should fit the bill; IC-M88 VHF Marine Transceiver - Features - Icom America
Dimensions (WHD)
(Projections not included) 62 97 39 mm;
2 7/16 3 13/16 (H) 1 17/32 in
Weight (approx.; with BP-227) 280g; 9.9oz
