This radio is helpful for the following circumstances: security guard, supermarket connection, construction area indication. It is also helpful for field survival, biking and hiking. It is very easy to use these. All you need is turn these two to the same channel (16channnel to be chosen), push a button, and you can hear from your mate.*Frequency:400-469.995MHz

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I'll start with the products construction. It feels cheap but nothing has broke the 1st week of use. For $20 a unit though who cares when the other are $100 and only last a year in this environment.
Clarity - I think it is actually better then the expensive one we use, may be that chatter is eliminated so I can hear my deck crew better though. The ear piece is a heck of a lot better than I expected after reading the reviews. I didn't have a problem at all understanding the other person, never did anyone else. Crew likes them better then the old ones.
Programing - To program what freq. to use was easy. Be advised though, as stated, it doesn't use windows 8. Lucky a guy on the boat had windows7 and programing was done in a matter of minutes once we decided which freqs we were going to use.
Freq usage - This has been a touchy subject so I did a lot of research due to my work area. We have Helo ports around us along with USCG and various other agencies. All these things have certain freqs they work on so I looked up and used the business freqs and there are more than plenty to cover the 16 channels you can program into the radio. I just used 7 freqs (7 set on low power and the same 7 set on high power.) Also this radio works great for me because it will do VHF also. I can program the working VHF freq we use into the radio right along with the UHF freqs eliminated the use for two radios. If I need to tell the deck crew something I can tell them to switch to channel 8 and the client can't hear what we are saying. The old way was to call them on the VHF and tell them to call me on the house phone. It just keeps ships business personal.
VOX function - This is a great tool if in security and such but was non functional for my use. The mic is very sensitive even set on the highest level. The boat makes a lot of noise when docking due to all the screws and thrusters working and the mike would pick it up and constantly stay keyed. It works great, just not for what I use the radio for.
CTCSS/DSC function - Again not for me. It works and works as intended. I tested this by programing two radios with it and one without. The two radios that had it did not pick up the transmission from the one without. The one without could hear the two with it, just as designed. THE BIG PROBLEM is if the one was transmitting the other two didn't know because they couldn't hear the transmission. If they tried to report something the radio would not transmit because someone was using the freq. at the same time. I immediately decided to do away with this function. Moving a 300' boat in close quarters I need to hear my deck guys.
Busy Channel Lockout - This may fix the above problem but I didn't look into it. Have not heard any traffic on the freqs we are using so no big deal with interference.
Scan function - Didn't use but I'm sure it works as intended. Everything else has.
Scramble function - Tried to use it but couldn't get it to work. Maybe I'm doing something wrong. Again no big deal for what I intend to use the radios for so didn't spend much time on it. If for security I may have spent more time on it.
Microphone on headset - This thing is very sensitive and works great and is very clear. Tested it out at least 1 foot from my mouth and was told it was crystal clear from the other person. Very impressed with the cheap looking earpiece/Mic combo. As a matter of fact I ordered 10 more, one for each crew member, so everyone doesn't have to share earpieces.
Range - Well that is not a factor for me once it only needs to go 300' BUT, I did test it out inside the steel hull of the boat. Good thing is I was able to talk to the Engine Room from the bridge. Pretty impressive once the signal is getting though 4 decks of steel. The radios didn't like the actual engine room where the engines were but worked fine in the Control room. My guess is the engines are putting off a freq that the radios didn't like.
Belt clip - Again will see in time but the clip felt strong.
Instuctions - Not very clear on the programing but can be figured out pretty quick. I just played with it and clicked all the buttons. That's when I found the VHF freqs.
Very impressed with this product on the price. Highly recommend and don't worry about all the Lic. talk needed. Point is the FCC has even talked to congress about doing away with the lic. requirement. Here is the exact wording from FCC.gov "In 2010, the FCC proposed to remove the individual licensing requirement for GMRS and instead license GMRS "by rule" (meaning that an individual license would not be required to operate a GMRS device). This proposal is still pending.
After 6 months of use these things are still great. I have only found one thing that could be better but of course the price would go up. The channel changer sometimes gets hit and changes channel when the guys are wearing them and moving around. If it was an LED screen with a channel lock feature on it this wouldn't happen but like I said, that would mean more money.
One of the 5 has stopped talking to me when you change the channel,other than that all is great. RADIO STILL WORKS, just doesn't announce what channel it is on. EXCELLENT buy for $20 a radio.
They're hard to program, especially if you don't speak Chinese. Using the supplied disc, my computer alerted to a
virus. A friend had more usable software and easily programmed the radios. They include the 440 MHz amateur radio band.
A Ham license is required to operate on selected frequencies. Don't expect long-range simplex reception.
For short-distance, line-of-site operations, these radios are acceptable. The Amazon price was reasonable, actually good.
What impressed me was that we usually leave one at base camp so if someone is gone too long or in distress, there is one we can take to find them. Typically, with past radios (that ranged in prices from $200-$600 each), we would have to take a radio to the area we knew they were hunting or hiking and then it would start to get reception so we could find them...not with these! We had a person who needed assistance and we were able to get signal all the way at our base camp, about 5 miles away. We were out in west Texas, so we were in mountains, valleys, and also some flat areas. I was VERY impressed that this radio worked so well!
The shipment came with individually packaged radios each with programming cable and disc. I had to screw in the belt clip and string the wrist hold through the very tiny opening, but all that took maybe 5 minutes per radio. I did not use the ear attachment, but they all had those as well.
I will most likely be ordering a few more of these to add to our set for our future trips.
