driving in a pack is ok for range but obstructions reduce this to merely 2-3 miles on high power. For my use its good but any other with obstructons I would look elsewhere.

Comments:

Our company bought 2 sets of these radios for use by our land survey crews. The cost of set was slightly more than the cost of replacing one single battery on our "professional" radios. We have now used these radios on the job, in hilly and highly vegetated areas with total sucess. Their range is great, the capability to change channels to avoid other traffic is wonderful and we didn't have to apply for FCC licensing! We are very happy with the product and would purchase again when needed.

Comments:

I had originally bought the radios for airsofting(it a lot like paintball for those that don't know). When I finally got them I took them out and charged them. It did not take that much time to do this. I tested them in a few different environments. They work almost a mile through a suburban neighborhood, close to three miles on a hill looking down with direct line of sight, and it picked up the ranger station at the base of Mt. Lemon, when we were about halfway up in a canyon. The only bad thing is that some of the channels that the radio can go to are restricted depending on where you live. All in all these are great radios and I would buy them again.

We purchased four of these for our warehouse operations. They have worked trouble free for us and have eliminated the need to go looking for employees just to ask a question or pass along work requests! Great product and we would recommend to any small businesses needing to improve their communications!

Comments:

I purhased the radios primarily to keep in contact with other vehicles when travelling together. The radios work well as long as the distance is not too far apart. Once we are about 1/2-3/4 mile apart, depending on terrain, we loose signal. I was hoping for better distance than that. Reception in mountainous terrain is even less when around hills and such.

Comments:

We use four of these around our property which encompasses about 8 acres. Our property includes a couple of facilities and open flat grounds. These replaced some Uniden radios that were pretty old, as well as a replacement set that were just plain terrible for reception and battery life. These GXT's work pretty darn well. These was no way these will work at the distance advertised but have much better transmission and receiving capabilities than the other radios we have been using. They can transmit though the walls (from one side to the other) of a 40K sq ft facility without all the static we dealt with with the Unidens. They are bulkier as well which makes them harder to fit in a cell phone pocket. Battery life is good enough to last over a full day of normal use and the available channels is more than adequate. These are well worth the extra money spent.

Comments:

I was skeptical about the stated range of these radios, but truly impressed after buying them. No problem whatsoever getting a clear signal at over 20 kilometers in town... and even greater on the highway. I live in the Rocky mountains and have used the radios many times at ranges no other radio can match... these are the best radios available! Battery life is tremendous with standby time over 8 hours.

We use this with our motorcycle to talk with each other on trips. The weather band on here is the best. Where ever you go you can use this for up too date weather information. We use this with our boat on the lake as well.
