  1. Perfect for Big Mountain Skiing!!! review by Geronimo on 3/3/2017

    Bought two BlackBox Plus VHF radios with Impact Platinum HD6 speaker mics, for a week long ski trip to Keystone, Colorado. They worked perfectly!!! Range and battery life were incredible. I stowed the radio in a small CamelBak with the water bladder removed, antenna sticking up out of the top zipper. Ran the mic line over the shoulder, with mic clipped to the shoulder strap. The radios came with the accessory clamps, but we didn't even use them. The mic connection was plenty sturdy, never had a problem. Turned the radios on at 8:30 am, had plenty of power until we quit skiing around 5:30. I would run black diamonds and my pops would run blues, I could hear him loud and clear the whole time from one part of the mountain to the other. From the bottom of one mountain I could hear him at the top of the next mountain. And we're talking big mountains. Default frequencies included 2 MURS freqs, we used one of them the whole time and never even heard anyone else. They charged back up easy in about an hour in the evening. Super easy to use, worked perfectly. Could not be happier. Thanks!!!!

  2. Great For Woodlands Use review by Billy on 8/23/2015

    We have been using Black Box radios for years in our forestry business. Works great here in Florida.

  3. Misrepresented review by Robert B. on 12/19/2012

    I ordered this radio with an external microphone but when I received the radio no accessory clamp. The microphone will not stay in place without the clamp. When you call no one knows why the clamp is not in the box. It appears to be false advertising sine in red letters they claim you will get one. this is a good radio if you do not buy the microphone with it since it falls out of the plug in port. If you do buy this radio do not expect to get the accessory clamp in the box and no need to call the Company no one knows why.

  4. Not what promised. review by Trooper John on 12/19/2012

    I bought this radio and ADVERTISED for an accessory clamp but I did not get. I called the Company and was told they were on back order and one would be shipped: Never received one. The sales rep " did not know anything about the clamp" and checked but none of the radio had any. If you order this radio it will NOT come with the clamp. Though advertised the accessory clamp is not in the box and none will be sent so they do not have the clamp to secure the mike to the radio.

  5. Not what it seems review by Andy on 9/6/2012

    I have bought three radios from this company and Have not many complants with the radio: excellent radio for any type of communication needs. This company has good customer service before and during the sell of the radio. My biggest concern though advertised you do not get the accessory clip for the radio : some type of manufacturer problem. This was one reason I bought another radio here was for the free clip since I bought a mike last year from this company. No accessory clip for any of the radios but other than this it is a really good radio. It does show it in the box but it does not come with the radio

  6. Service review by Andy on 8/26/2012

  9. Buy two way radios review by Captain Andy Mercer on 8/18/2012

    I bought a radio and have bought four radios from buy two way radios. The service is excellent and the sales people are the most helpful people I have found. I have my own frequency licensed by the FCC but I added my fire frequencies since I am a volunteer firefighter in my community. I farm and use my radio for farming operations keeping track of hands on tractors around 6 counties. From the start to the finish I am totally pleased with Buy two way radios. The service starts when you contact them and continues to the end and beyond. This is the only place to buy two way radios. I recommend buy two way radios for all you communication needs.

  10. Excellent review by Andy Mercer on 8/11/2012

    I have used this radio in heat at or above 1500d and in moisture NOTHING under water. The sound is very clear and it is so light weight it does not weigh me down while working. I am able to talk 3 miles on the farm and with my emergency services part time job. I would recommend this radio and I would recommend BUY TWO WAY RADIOS as the ONLY place to buy all your equipment. The service is great and I feel that each person looks at it if they was buying the radio how do they want to be treated and they TREAT you GREAT. If I am in need of another radio I will buy from this company and I do 100% recommend this company to anyone who needs a radio or service. BUY TWO WAY RADIOS go above what is expected of them to treat the CUSTOMER (YOU) with the up most respect and courtesy during and after the sale. I was 100%+ satisfied with the sales People and this company for ALL the help and assistance along with the speedy delivery that I received. This is the company to buy ALL your equipment from.
