The ideal emergency preparedness communication tool for outdoor enthusiasts and active families.

Perfect for the home, the trails, the slopes, and more.

Total Emergency Preparedness
The EM1000R includes an emergency alert feature, allowing you to enjoy your escape to the great outdoors with confidence that others can be informed of any dangers that may come your way. When the alert button is activated, the radio transmits an alert siren followed by transmission of spoken or incidental sounds. This allows you to send the signal to other radios and warn of impending danger. The EM1000R also features a built-in LED flashlight for peace-of-mind during evening adventures or unexpected emergencies and power outages.

NOAA Weather Channel
Want to keep in touch with changing weather conditions during your family camping adventure? No need to stop the fun � weather alerts will provide your group with warnings of incoming storms or dangerous conditions. And, by tuning in to one of 7 NOAA channels (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) on your EM1000R, you will always know what to pack with continuous local and regional weather broadcasting.

Full-Featured Privacy
The Talkabout EM1000R has full 22-frequency capacity with 121 privacy codes to reduce interruptions. The Motorola QT (Quiet talk) functionality allows the radios to be set so they can communicate with other compatible Motorola products, adding yet another level of distinction from the other manufacturers.

Hands-Free Communication
When you are hiking up a steep mountain trail, you really need to keep your hands free to brace the rocky terrain. With iVOX acting like a speakerphone and allowing hands-free communication, you can keep on moving without stopping to answer a call.

Four Ways to Charge
Designed to fit every lifestyle, the EM1000R allows you the convenience of charging four distinct ways. Use the provided desktop charger at home or a mini-USB car cable on your way to soccer practice. Pack a mini-USB wall cable for recharge in the hotel during your family vacation or simply charge from your PC when no power outlet is available using a mini-USB PC cable. (Mini-USB car, wall and PC cables are sold separately.)

NO batteries, NO charger.

They get very clear reception and are perfect for road trips, hunting/fishing trips, or a way to communicate in a large work environment.

The radios worked well on the treacherous mountain roads (even between distances of more than 1 mile!).

This radio works very well in hilly terrain and is easy to use. Reception is clear. One suggestion: the online product information should indicate that the "R" in EM1000R refers to the fact that the pair of radios comes with a recharging bay (with a slot for each radio). This will make comparison among products clearer.

The EM1000R radios are very good. They are good for short range 2-way radio general usage. You must remember that there is NO scramble mode on these radios, so absolutely no possibility of any privacy at all (000%). Motorola refers to the CTCSS & DCS codes correctly as Eliminator Codes. Too many manufacturers refer to them as Privacy Codes (which is INCORRECT). CTCSS/DCS do not offer any privacy at all. They help keep out unwanted conversations from being received by the radio. But do not block or prevent anyone else on any other FRS/GMRS or SCANNER radio from hearing you. The EM1000R has all 38 standard CTCSS tones. And has 83 DCS codes available.

Here are a couple of things I really like about the EM1000R radios:

- Very good pickup on the built-in MIC
- Very good audio on the built-in speaker (perhaps the best)
- the QT mode is very cool. When ENABLED, it prevents other
radio users using the same CHANNEL and QUIET CODE from being
heard by blocking reception of those radios. Very very cool
feature. It blocks the other non-motorola radios even if they
are using the same CTCSS/DCS code. Again, very cool feature.
- the ALERT button is cool. Its very similar to EMERGENCY
buttons used on Motorola Trunk and Conventional Radio Systems.
It activates the PTT with an ALERT for 8 seconds, then turns ON the MIC
automatically on the affected radio for 22 seconds. And turns
the VOLUME UP all the way on any and all other Motorola EM1000R
radios that are receiving the signal. Then cranks the VOLUME
back down to the regular level after the 22 seconds. Very cool
function/feature. Very well thought out Motorola. Congrats!

These are very nice radios. I am very happy with the purchase.

Pros:
- These radios came with a free car charger in the box! The sticker on it said it was for a limited time..
- They look nice. They have a high quality feel to them.
- The rechargable batteries included are the 3 AA cell batteries. That's a plus because I can easily use AA alkaline Batteries from the shop if I run out of juice.
- It comes with built-in LED flash light.

Cons:
- The batteries are only 650 mAh Ni-Cd, which are a bit low compared to current NiMH. Maybe I'll throw in a trio of eneloops in if I start running out of battery.
- The stand alone charger is a dumb charger which I think keeps on charging once full (potentially dangerous). The manual is a bit confusing regarding this fact.

I was a bit hesitant that this was overkill and too serious for my kids but was pleasantly surprised:

pros:
-size works well for even a 4 year old
-the beep after send makes it easy for them
-menu lock makes it very simple for them to just press PPT and not worry about anything else
-rechargeable cradle is easy to use
-manual says must be 5 feet away but seems to work fine even if the kids are right next to each other

cons:
-auto charger was not a standard Motorola-quality - seemed like a cheap knockoff

Overall, very highly recommended.

I've been using these radios constantly for a couple months now and I'm very pleased with them. They get very clear reception and are perfect for road trips, hunting/fishing trips, or a way to communicate in a large work environment. The batteries hold a good charge, and can be used constantly for about 8 hours before they're drained. As the batteries lose juice the radios do lose some signal distance however. These are a much better deal than radios that require AA batteries. A little most costly at first, but they make up for it if you use them a lot. These are great little radios. If you need a set, these are a good option.

I have purchased a total of 5 sets (10 individuals). My daughter and I take my grandkids camping each year and these are so handy. Each person gets their own and they (the walkie talkies) all communicate with each other, as long as their are all on the same channel. My grandkids, ages 16 months, 9, 11 and 13 yrs can all use them. Yes, even the 16 month old can push the button, we just don't know what he's saying, although this is not the fault of the walkie talkie. They allowed the kids more freedom since the cell phones didn't work but the walkie talkie's did, the kids could go exploring and still check-in without having to run all the way back to camp.
They were turned on for approximately 6 hours a day for 3-1/2 days. The little flash light is great, we dont have to pack as many individual flash lights for each kid. At no time during our trip did they not work for us. So far I have found the distance limits to be correct as listed on the packaging. In the city has been about 2-1/2 to 3 miles.
As far as the seller, I flet the price was reasonable, I received my order on time with no problems. I would order from this seller again.
