PROS

CONS

  • Mic wire not long enough
  • Poor return policy
  • Not hands free
  • Poor Reception

BEST USES

  • Absolutely worthless

Comments:

Wanted to use when on motorcycle--mic wire not long enough- wont come close enough to mouth to talk so other person can hear anything. Not hands free-have to hold mic wire against face otherwise it picks up only bits/pieces. Return policy is 20% restock & no refund on shipping either way, plus you must have ALL packing. Totally worthless product and a complete waste of money.

Comments:

I use these radios for work (Harbor Department). The 36 mile range in "optimal conditions" is a scam obviously, but the 2 mile range in urban environments is possible. I receive signal at 1.5 miles rooftop to rooftop without a hitch. We have an assortment of Motorolas in our shop and these work better (clearer sound and better features). For the under $150/set range of radios, this is the one we recommend and use.

Three day back packing adventure along the Arizona Trail and Rincon Mountains. Used 2-Way radio in extremely rugged terrain to maintain team communication, monitor team health, water supplies, and rate of movement between checkpoints. Range out to 3/4 mile was excellent!

Comments:

I use the radios on my job when working with a second technician and we need to communicate over short distances. I have had no problems with the radios. The sound quality is excellent and with the head set we can still talk in noisy areas. For the money, a very nice set of radios.

Comments:

My wife takes this radio with her on walks with our dog . It gives her instant communication with me at home, as opposed to trying to fumble with her wireless phone. The radios have no problem transmitting in our urban area 1-2 miles with small hills between us. These radios have made her feel more secure and is impressed with their ease of use,clarity,size and excellent price.Perfect!

Comments:

Over all,I am very satisfied with the units and the people that sold me the equipment were just great and so helpful. I have short range but I guess it is because of the peaks and valleys or the area. It's easy to use,well made and people asks me about it.I am in the northern part of South America,using it.Live in California.

We use these radios for work in my land survey firm. They are a great radio for the money. I was able to purchase this set for less money then and batteries for my "professional" radios and they work just as well, if not better.

Comments:

The stated 36 mile range might be possible in outer space. However, in my fairly dense residential neighbourhood with lots of tall trees and three story houses, one third of a mile is about the maximum range. This comes as no surprise as this is what I expected and is satisfactory for communicating with family members in the neighbourhood. Having had a lot of experience with ham equipment in the VHF/UHF bands I know that range can be limited, even with mobile radios having ten times the power and high gain antennas. That's why ham and commercial systems use repeaters with antennas mounted on buildings and towers as high as reasonably possible. Having said that, the radios work well, the controls were not hard to figure out. I especially like the weather radio function.
