I am the Corresponding Secretary of the Glynn County (Georgia) Local Emergency Planning Committee (LEPC). I purchased these radios for evaluation as a communications multiplier to be used by citizen volunteers and agencies. The concept is that a sworn first responder with an agency radio would be able to communicate with unsworn local emergency volunteers equipped with these units in and around a hazard site thus multiplying the effectiveness of agency communications without having to buy more expensive units.
Bought a pair of these because my wife complained about the size of out other radios ... she was much happier with one of these in her pocket, and for our main use (skiing) the worked very well. Battery life was fine, and we had no problems communicating through trees and other mountain features (although we didn't attempt to cover any major distances). Found that we had to turn the volume all the way up and of course take our gloves off to use them, but that seems normal. Bumped into other skiers with exactly the same radios, so they must be popular!
Used on a cruise ship. Only tried it from top deck to 2 floors down. Didn't test at farther distance.
I got this units to use in my 12 day camp trip into the jungle. It manage to comunicate very well and clear about 2 miles far considering I was in a site higher then the camp base. Altrough there was a lot of wood betwen. I would recomended. Next test It will be in a soccer stadium here in brazil
Very happy with the product and speedy shipping my husband loves them
