Up here in Canada, in November, you can have rain one minute, snow the next, or both!

I like to take my HomePatrol outside and I'm not crazy about it getting wet.

While I was out BBQ-ing there was a light drizzle, so what I did was put the HomePatrol into a clear, thin gauge plastic bag (like the type you get in the produce section of a supermarket) this kept the radio dry, display visible and allowed me still to tap the screen for the inevitable Next transmissions.

Just wondering what others do, or do you keep yours warm and dry inside?

At $500 a pop, no way I'm going to allow my HP
to come in contact with rain! Wow! Like the
plastic bag idea, if you had cause to have to
do that. My HP sits next to me in the living
room, on its table mount, and when I travel with
it, I load it into a padded camera bag that just
fits the HP that i found for a quarter at a local
thrift store. I use it for transfer out to the
car, where I have a RAM mount holding the mobile
bracket from Uniden. I use the GPS puck with it,
and the system really works well. I do not leave
the unit in the car exposed, day or night. When
I stop, if I'm not home, I load it into the padded
bag for safety and security reasons. I just do
not feel like risking losing this unit!
