Raytheon 102 VHF

Anybody familiar with this model?

It's submersible, rechargeable NiCad with alkaline tray.

Cyber-marine.com has reconditioned models at $169 with a 1-year warranty. Called Raytheon, and their normal $70 flat rate applies for service after 1 year.

Should I get one?

Not a ton of use for a VHF this far inland, but the super-duper weather radio it makes would be great! I can justify purchasing a VHF for my infrequent travels to the coast, and the infrequent VHF talk it would get here....should I get this one?
