Looking for advise on a two way radio for ocean/bay in a kayak or shore dive.  Maybe uhf/vhf dual band and waterproof.

There are lots of threads about this on the forum. Use the search function on the upper right with "VHF" or "radio".

Once you get to 10 posts more of the site will be available for you to see.

Pretty sure I have a Standard Horizon HX300.

I've been using this one:

https://www.amazon.com/Standard-Horizon-HX300-Handheld-Marine/dp/B00AJVXA5W

Works great and I like that it doesn't have the twisty konbs that my previous ones had that always got gummed up and stuck after a lot of time on the salt...

We use marine band VHF radios.  There are several different bands available for purchase and use, make sure you get the marine band radio and not the FRS/GMRS, CB, or the like.
