Review: Right "out of the box" this radio is ready and legal to use (after 12 hours to full charge) without a license on FRS only channels 8-14 and has 121 privacy codes (38 CTCSS, 83 DCS). All channels other than 8-14 of the 36 total require a GMRS license.
- Solid build: Extremely lightweight. Decent belt clip. Nonadjustable orangeish back-lit screen (Push To Talk, PTT does not activate back light). Good ergonomics, rubberized PTT and headset cover. PTT button does not extrude from housing much thus low risk of bumping PTT button.
-Usage life: comes with rechargeable battery and base. Also accepts 3 AAA. I had the radio on from 1400-2200 and on PTT FRS (low power only), medium radio traffic and they didn't die. I can't give an accurate rechargeable battery life usage, but backup AAAs are there, so not worried.
- Mic and Speaker: at optimal conditions this little radio can be crystal clear. Squelch works, no issues. VOX (just talk, no push button) feature is nice and adjustable. Didn't need for event, but handy when desired.
-Headset option: I did purchase the Midland APVH-3 headset, worked without issue. Decent cord length, solid PPT and VOX speaker box. Can charge from MIC port. CAUTION: speaker/mic pin set differ from other main brands, insure compatibility when purchasing.
-Range: Meets maximum standards, FRS .5 miles - 2 miles, conditions dependent. After enough research to get a doctorate on walkie talkies, these radios just work. FRS is limited to .5 watt (1/2 watt or 500 milliwatt) by the FCC, potentially the MAX range is approx 2 miles conditions dependent. More stuff in between the radios = less range. GMRS has further ranges operating at 5 watt but requires a license (good for 5 years and immediate family members).
Overall: Nothing about the radios are dissatisfying or disappointing, unfortunately they are 3x the price of the clones, but worry free. Working with .5 watt is limiting but they just simply work and do what I needed. I may upgrade to using GMRS one day and is nice to have that option. I wanted something LEGAL and just works. The main brand headset also unfortunately are pricier than generic brands and other radio brands. I like them, they work.
but battery life is ridiculous. and recharging it takes 24hours. so an hotel night with electricity won't be sufficient on multi days trips.
It would be useful to be able to charge them separately in the car (without the stand)
Please note that it is Ni-CD batteries. So frequent charging is not healthy for the life of the batteries. Great for those going on long trips and would like to swap out with AA batteries. But
I followed the instructions, charged for 24 hours before use and setup privacy codes.
They have a very long battery life which was great for me because I work 12 hour shifts.
The reception was perfect
I tested the distance and was able to communicate clearly at 1 mile even with no line of sight.
There were no trees in the way a hill was between us
At 1.25 miles I started to hear static and at 1.5 miles communication was impossible.
I had the power set to high and was not using any peripherals such as a headset.
Another crew said they were able to hear us even with the privacy code set, but we were not able to hear them.
I haven't researched how the privacy code works but apparently it only keeps others from butting into your conversation.
