Top Customer Reviews
After we used the 1st pair for a few days, we realized just how much more efficient we were working, so I ordered a second pair to give to operators so that we can be in constant contact with each other. Now, if there is a problem with one of the machines, I can ask them what the problem is, and avoid wasted time walking the 50 to 75 yards to survey the problem, and then walk back to get the necessary tools to fix the problem.
The in-ear headset also doubles as a sound-reducing ear plug, but still allows me to communicate with the crew. However, the clear plastic behind-the-ear spiral looks rather CIA/Secret Service, and I have had to put up with some ribbing from some of the other workers in the plant. If they only knew just how comfortable, and, convenient this headset is, they wouldn't rib for long.
Midland Radios has long been a leader in radio manufacturing, and that was one big selling point for my purchase. These are NOT cheap little toys, but, well-constructed, solid radios.
I would suggest to follow the instructions to give the units a 24 hour initial charge, and then to charge them only as needed, every 2 days or so.
All in all, I am very pleased with the quality, the performance, and the range that these radios provide. We may even decide to purchase a third set.
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.
We charged for 24 hours before first use, used them all day/12 hours, and batteries are still at full power. We were advised by a Midland rep NOT to leave the radios on the charger as a matter of course, but only to charge the radios when they actually needed it. It is on our checklist now to check radio battery life two days before event.
When you buy: They need a 24-hr charge before first use; and if you are running a large event, buy enough to give one of your radios to the venue rep for the duration of your event. It will save you a lot of running around looking for that person when you need them to act.
Love these radios.
