  1. Great product review by Charlie on 11/1/2012

    For hunting

  2. Specifications missing review by James on 7/5/2012

    The following comments are applicable to all hand held UHF (Ultra High Frequency) transceivers. Used as a wireless intercom within the building or in neighboring buildings it works fine, but the range is limited to line of sight and the theoretical maximum range is line of sight in a vacuum, like in space. It does penetrate most walls, but at a sacrifice of range. Expect about ten percent of the advertised range when you can see each other. If you are hiking in the hills, you will loose contact when you start down the other side of the hill even if you are within shouting distance. Missing specification: ERP (Effective Radiated Power) at the various power levels of the radio. or RF (Radio Frequency) power and antenna gain at the various power levels of the radio. In my humble opinion, I would get the license and try to find a GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service) radio without the FRS (Family Radio Service) option that requires a fixed antenna. Then a higher gain antenna could be attached to the radio to improve the ERP which will extend the effective range. Features I would like to see: field adjustable squelch GMRS only radio (must be licensed to use) able to access to GMRS repeaters all transmitter and receiver specifications GMRS repeaters are becoming more numerous and having a repeater capable radio is certainly a major bonus. Unfortunately, most GMRS radios are unable to use repeaters. I will not purchase a GMRS radio that is unable to access a repeater. If you often trek in wilderness areas, consider setting up a GMRS repeater for your group.

  3. 35 Mile range? Good Luck! review by Steve, The Drummer on 7/8/2011

    Heres another radio claiming to have a 35 mile capibility. There is no RF power output listed in the specs, but what can it, be running on 3 AA batteries. My guess is 500mw or 1/2 a watt. Yes, it is possible but do'nt count on it. I've talked half way across the world on 5 watts, but that was HF and multiple "HOPS". UHF is strictly Ground Wave and My guess is that you'll see no more than a quarter mile reliably. This radio is supposed to be Reapeater Capible, and if so, you should see a lot farther communications than 35 miles. Providing your in range of a repeater.

  4. Disappointed review by Dan on 1/28/2011

    Units are constructed well with quality controls. However, the range was terrible. In a small (flat) town we lost contact in a 1/2 mile. These are simply not usable or returnable after the package has been opened. Even though they label these, 35 mile range under "optimum" conditions, I still believe that is misleading to consumers. One would expect atleast 5 miles in town...

  5. button sticks on sometimes cannot receiv review by snowman on 12/27/2010

    the 10x sport.was the best radio you ever made!!the push to talk button sticks on!my 4 sons and i have 6 of the mr356r and they all stick on!!!!! the 6000 blue radio was better.you should of left the volume on off as a pushbutton instead of a knobe.
