A friend confirmed an output of 3 watts and excellent reception sensitivity. The range is all about the length of the antennae. I got about a 1 mile range with the magnetic hood top antenna. Therefore it is great in a convoy of Jeeps in the woods under 1 mile. But extremely convenient, can take off the short antenna, put both in the glovebox. Don't have to figure out where to mount a box or route any wiring.
I use it in a 745 excavator to talk to the drivers so i can line them out to load.
I use this radio for work in/out of the vehicle, traffic control & as a back up radio if ness.
Very clear. When traffic is backed up it's great to listen to the truckers as they discuss the details of what's going on. Local weather is a great plus as you tranve cross-country.
I have a couple of these radios and love them. I also have a couple of other brands but they are much heaver and do the same job. I use them in my work and have bought others for gifts.. Enjoy them, I do..easy to operate, light weight, good range..
This radio has a very short range, app 1/2 to 3/4 mile. tried it on a motorcyle with the 1500 tall antenna and could only communicate for app 1/4 mile. If a vehicle got between you and the vehicle ahead you lost all transmission. On the road you have a lot of squelch problems. WOuld not recomend. Would buy either a Midlands or Motorla hand held.
