Great product at a great price.
Despite other reviews this radio simply does not do the job. Could not even communicate with someone within 100yds. Range varies but transmissions are weak. Purchased this to replace old pair of motorola talkabout 250's which still are better than this model. Would pass on this particular radio.
The rechargeable NiMH battery pack doesn't fit into the battery compartment. The back cover will not completely latch and will fall off with the slightest jarring or bump. Individual AA batteries fit and the cover will close properly, but I've had issues in the past with battery acid leakage. The rechargeable NiMH battery pack was a key point in my decision to buy these radios since I needed to replace one that was ruined by leaking batteries. Since these radios were purchased for hunting and travel, I can't be focusing on whether the back cover is still there.
Use this for keeping intouch with others around me while hunting.
great radio for the family ..., easy to control .. love it so much
Great radio. I use it to talk through a local repeater with reception well over 50 miles and on simplex operations with the family at the mall. Also communicates well with my other Motorola radios. Great radio at a good price.
