Motorola should provide license information and a link to the FCC's site, but inexplicably have neglected to do so. Using the GMRS frequencies without a valid FCC license is illegal and this should be made clear in the instructions, but it is ignored. The instruction sheet that comes with the radios is also perplexing as the typeface is very small --- break out your magnifying glass --- and the first page is in English while the second page continuation is in French. WTF? I had to go to the Motorola web site to download a PDF of an all-English instruction sheet. This was simple stupidity on someone's part.
The units seem well made and have some nice features: water resistant, built-in flashlight, NOAA weather service reports and easy USB charging, but the only way you might get 35-miles of range is in outer space. Even the specced "up to two miles" range in neighborhoods is hopelessly optimistic. On Planet Earth, 1/4 mile seems to be the reliable limit, so don't believe one word of the touted 35 mile range. If you are that gullible, I have some swampland I'll be happy to sell you.
The package just arrived today for the T600 Talkabout Radios so this is my preliminary review based on what I see out of the box. A lot of reviews mention bad battery charging, but I haven't tried charging the included batteries yet. We put in 3 AA batteries into each hand held unit and were up and running. In a matter of minutes we were testing the units out around our house and tuning into the local NOAA weather station.
Right off the bat one major improvement that is needed for these to be truly emergency prep based is if the belt clip/whistle had a flat head screw driver on the bottom tip. The flat head is necessary in the event of an emergency in order to be able to open the back battery panel and immediately put in the 3 AA batteries. Without this improvement you will need to carry an extra flat head screw driver which is cumbersome when hiking.
With these hand sets there is an O-ring seal within the battery panel so care must be taken to properly clean and lubricate the O-rings to prevent any water damage. I look forward to testing these in water and cold temperatures.
Now the not so good comments - I did notice that reception between the radios was clear but only up to about a mile over water. I could see the other kayak, however the communications started to break up a little. I have heard that some other radios have the same issue over water. I was really hoping they would transmit 2 to 3 miles over water, but no such luck. I do not know much about the difference between land and water communications, I plan to read more about this issue, there might be a better channel or trick to it. Last note here, when the base of the radio got wet because to put it in a damp cup holder, the light did turn on. I didn't realize it had gotten wet, the light was on for about 45 minutes I think before I noticed, however the battery stayed strong and lasted over 9 hours.
Overall, I do think the housing and radio is made well, it didn't feel cheep to me, and again being waterproof and floating was very very important to me and it really paid off when it did go overboard.
I think I will try disposable lithium batteries and see if that helps.
