Well this is starting to get interesting,
Some of us model submariners have now gone over to open LRS 433Mhz👍 as the old 40Mhz has more or less gone for good☹️, some also fill that you could use 2,4 in a Sub if you keep the ariel above the water line meaning you can only submerge to periscope depth, we have a member in our club that only runs his sub on the surface and that has 2,4.
In one of my sub's I have a WTC made out of a rainwater down pipe, with very tight push in end cap's and I have taken her down to 8ft with no problems, before WTC a lot of the Sub's used the old Darnell system and we also used to take them down to 8ft,
As for the pressure I would think Boyles law will come into play?
As we all live in one bar (14,5psi) and the water pressure doe's not increase to much until we get down to 33ft then it doubles ie 29psi😴😴
Time to get my coat
