it was the product I wanted that I could not find anywhere else
We bought these radios to use during a parade to help keep it flowing and to keep things under control. The advertised range I believe is 5 miles, and since the parade route is lass than 3 miles, we thought these would be perfect. WRONG! These radios wouldn't even make it 1/2 mile, and even less once someone went around a building. We would up returning them and getting a Midland set based on a recommendation and they worked MUCH better! These radios are VERY nice and easy to operate, however I wouldn't characterize them as anything more than "toys" and would never depend on them for use for anything more. This recommendation is based on use in the city though. They may work better in a campground or something similar - I don't know
This is a thirty-one employee dental practice, about to double in size. Each employee wears this handset, plus an ear bud, all day long, six days a week. I don't think the radio was designed for this type of heavy use, but they serve us well. The audio is clearer than most comparable models, and the smaller, streamlined size and shape fits well in a lab coat pocket. The price is right for us. I have to order eight more sets soon, and I will get them from "Buy Two-Way Radios." (We received eight free ear buds with our order, but we didn't like them. They are good ear buds, but their design didn't work well for us the way we carry and use them.)
We use the radios instead of paging on our overhead system constantly. There are places in the building where you cannot hear them calling you because of the loud noise volume, so the push-to-talk earphone can in really handy. We have not had any issues with reception.
I do a lot of hiking and biking. Using these walkie talkies doesn't make it necessary to use my cell phone. Much eisier and they work great depending on the tourain. They will work up to 10 miles, once again depending on the tourain.
[...] Great experience
The radios work great. The only thing we don't like is the weird sound it makes each time you receive a call. We'd like to get rid of that click or sound it makes, it kind of bugs. Does someone know how to avoid that sound? JOSE
