Comments:

We tested several brands of FRS/GMRS radios and the performance of the Midland units was well above the other brands in the same price category. We were testing in a mountainous community in western NC for use during wildfire emergencies and these did almost as well as the high-end units costs 10 times as much.

Comments:

ME AND BUDDY STARTED OUR OWN RADIO CLUB. WE FIRST USED THE MOTOROLA MJ270R RADIOS FOR MAX RANGE. RANGE IS ONLY WAS 3/4 MILE. WE NEEDED MORE POWER FROM 2 WATTS TO 5 WATTS AND BETTER RANGE. WE WENT WITH THE MIDLAND GXT 1000 RADIOS. WE TESTED 1.5 MILE RANGE THROUGH VALLEY TO ROLLING HILLS IN OUR AREA. I WISHED WE HAD 2+ MILES WITHOUT ANY HILLY TERRAIN IN OUR AREA. THE RADIO ITSELF IS RUGGED LOOKING. THE POWER SOURCE OF 4 AA BATTERIES DOES DRAIN IN THE HIGH POWER LEVEL, I WOULD RECOMMAND MEDIUM POWER LEVEL. I WOULD USE THESE RADIOS IN ANY KIND OF WEATHER OR POWER OUTAGES.

Commonality of use by others within range can cause static and be very annoying. Reducing volume helps mitigate the static; turning the unit off and on also helpful.

Comments:

We take a cruise every year. This year we needed to replace our 10 year old radios. After researching and seeing the review of these on the website, I took a chance and ordered four (two sets). These radios performed above our imagination. No matter where we were on the ship, we could hear each other. The vibrate was perfect. No bell or ringers going off to disturb anyone during a show. The whisper mode made it possible to whisper into the radio and the other person could hear plainly on the other radio. The radios we purchased had group mode, which was indispensable to us, as we did not need to hear everyone's conversation, only those we needed to talk with. We lost one during the trip, so I have now written addresses inside the battery door on the others. In total, I have now bought 4 sets of these radios. I feel they are the best made for the price and what they do. We didn't use the headsets as we didn't want to stand out walking around the ship with them on. I could see using the headsets while fishing or camping or walking trails.

The range was pretty good. The battery indicator is not accurate. One minute it said I had a full battery the next it said the battery was low. There should be a indicator light on the charging unit when the batteries are charged The head set oush to talk and the Vox feture did not work good on the motorcycle as falsely advertised in the add

Comments:

I wish you would allow businesses that have many radios the option of buying radios only without all the extras. We try to keep 12 radios at a time, and when they need replaced, I do not need more headphones, chargers, etc., I have boxes of those extra things. All I need is a radio and the battery pack. It would be great if Midland would consider this. It just seems like such a waste. Thank you.
