Comments:

we work in a school/adt program and these are great for communicating between staff. There are times that some other radios in the area will override and we will have to change channels, but for the money...it is a great buy...we have never had trouble with the radios...they don't last forever, we have had to replace some...but we will continue to buy

VERY GOOD RADIO FOR THE MONEY. THE ONLY PROBLEM I HAVE HAD IS THE BATTERY PACK IN ONE OF MY RADIOS WILL NOT KEEP A CHARGE. I HAVE ONLY USED THEM FOR A COUPLE OF WEEKS.

Comments:

We used it Mtn Biking in Vermont, gave us the opportunity to ride different trails and still be in contact. Had some spotty reception at times, but lots of hills and trees so to be expected. I'd guess max range in the bush was probably 2 miles... tough to say. Did have a long range transmission though, I was on the crest of one mountain and the wife was near the peak of another, separated by a valley, crystal clear reception.

Great radios, but not much range. In a small town setting, I'm getting only 1.5 to 3 miles usable range. Excellent sound quality and they are very easy to use.

I own a business that uses 2 way radios everyday 13 hrs a day. I had previously purchased elsewhere 4 other sets at seperate times that did not last anytime. These has been very reliable and have great battery hold. I also got the headsets which are great. I am ordering another set [...]. I am a very satisfied customer after spending 100s elsewhere on ones that didn't last.

I use the units between my Mother's bedroom, who is 93 years old and my bedroom which is across the house, or any other part of the house so that if she needs me during the day or night she can reach me quickly. They work wonderful Mother has no trouble using them at all.

Comments:

The best two way radio by far. This is my second set of Midland radios and am more than 100% satisfied with it. Get a clear reception in town of 5 Kilo's plus and in the rural areas 10 kilo's plus! Used mainly for hunting purposes. Basic communication is easy to use but if you intent using all the functions of the radio make sure you keep your manual with you. Something that can be added to the set or as an accessory is a cord or strap which attaches to the radio and then put around your neck to prevent the radio from falling out of your pocket. Another 2 sets is on order now!

Comments:

For communicating between the truck, the combine and the tractor these radios have worked fine. Hand them out in the morning and gather them up at night to charge. I wish the car charger would plug directly into the radio.
