Top Customer Reviews
Even more annoying to me is that the scanning mode is slow to lock on to your priority channel. Say you have your unit set to channel 20 to transmit and receive, then turn on the scanning mode to monitor for activity. It's supposed to give priority to the channel you are set to (channel 20 in this example), so that no matter where it is in the channel scan polling, if someone calls on channel 20, then it should jump to channel 20 and lock on right away so you won't miss your priority channel calls. But it does not! It is slow to detect activity on the priority channel and can take up to 2 seconds to switch to it! Therefore you can miss short transmissions of someone trying to contact you. My older version Motorola MS350R waterproof radio jumps Immediately to your priority channel as soon as activity is detected. So big minus on this T465 processing algorithm.
Another annoying minus of the T465 is that it emits a loud crashing blast of static noise every time activity is detected during channel scanning and when the radio squelches after a transmission is detected. It's as if the squelch is too slow to close the noise gate and you catch the tail end of the channel noise static which BLASTS in CRASHING LOUD. This is unacceptable for a "Hunting" radio where you might not want to disturb or scare away animals or reveal your where abouts! The older Motorola units do not blast a squelch noise like the T465 does during scanning.
When I compared the receive audio quality of the speaker output of the T465 with the Motorola MS350R radio, the T465 audio was not as good as the MS350R audio output. T465 sounded weaker and tinnier, high pitched compared to the MS350R more robust better tonal quality.
Wait, I'm not done, the LCD display and back lighting is smaller and dimmer and harder to read compared to the larger and brighter better lit orange back lit MS350R LCD display. Terrible considering that the T465 costs twice as much.
Okay, the good points are:
I liked the shape and size of the radios and that they use USB charging via a USB port so that it is more flexible in charging it when you are traveling and don't have to carry around a clumsy base charger.
I am not 100% sure of it but I think the T465 receiver may be a bit more sensitive than the MS350R receiver as there was a time where it was receiving a weak signal on channel 15 breaking squelch while the MS350R receiver sitting pretty much right next to the T465 remained silent on that channel and did not pick up the activity. But then again that just might be the placement of the radios that caused the receive anomaly.
I did not test the transmit range because from much past experience, I know that they would probably be about the same in that area.
Bottom line is that I was not impressed with the performance quirks of this top of the line new offering from Motorola.
I returned the units to amazon for refund because they are not worth it. I should mention that I am a real customer that bought this on my own and not enticed by any seller with a free radio offer. This is my review of actual purchased radio units from amazon. I was really hoping that they would be the radios that ended my search but they sadly are not. I do not recommend them due to the nagging flaws in design and especially not for the higher price they are going for at this time.
They feel solid. We used to use similar Motorola radios in helicopters for years. These also have the capabilities to use repeaters, which takes an FCC license. Handy if you are out in the boonies out of cell range and don't have a Sat-phone. As for range, 35 miles... Lol, maybe on paper, under perfect conditions using line of sight. Figure a couple of miles depending on topography. Hard to beat for the Bucks.
The red one is the only model in the lineup that's intended to be left on the charger and turned on. However with all of them, if you let the battery go completely dead, they freeze up and won't turn back on until you charge them for several hours (while they won't turn on) then you have to unplug them and remove the battery for a few seconds - then you can replace the battery and plug them back in. This is extremely annoying and every time you have to pay close attention to make sure you're putting the seal back in correctly or you'll defeat the water resistance.
Also - it seems like when it picks up the emergency weather radio tests it doesn't switch back automatically so it gets stuck on a loud broadcast test.
In the end I read a lot more reviews before just going with the Cobra top model - it's fully waterproof, can charge in a dock or with a cord and seems like the battery lasts several days vs about 6 hours with the Motorolas
Purchased these again and you cant even hear out of one of the units unless youre in complete silence and the volume is all the way up and the other person is basically yelling into the other unit. So twice I have purchased these and both times alone one has worked. Get your crap together Motorola and Amazon!
