We are a construction equipment rental company. These are used in our yard, work well and can take abuse by my yardmen.
I bought these radios with grant money for our animal rescue. They are perfect for coordinating the search and rescue of a lost domestic animal in our wilderness. The price is right, the MURS freqs and coded feature make for a quiet radio, the radios are tough and easy to use, and I have had good success with battery life so far. As far as range is concerned, don't fool yourself. If you understand the simple concept of line-of-site then you won't be disappointed with this radio. If you are expecting it to talk through or over mountains then you're asking too much of a simplex radio system. Google "radio wave propagation and polarization concepts", study, learn and don't make snap decisions based on manufacturer's wild claims that can't possibly overcome end-user silliness. Learn how radio works before you buy one.
Let me be the first one to say that this is a great radio, I received this radio 10-21-2015. I purchased this radio because some times their are a lot of people on there FRS/GMRS bubble pack radios and their are a lot of people that overlap on each other, most of the time kids are playing with their radios, that all they do is hit the call tone button and walk on top of each other so I purchased this radio to get a way from all the noise, Not a lot of people know about MURS so not a lot of people will be on the MURS frequencies, I'm also thinking of using MURS as an back up radio.
