by C. Siano on August 1, 2012 Style Name: Pack of 1
They are high quality. The feeling, controls, and cabinets are substantial.
Whenever you turn the unit on, a voice states "Power On" and then speaks the funnel number. While you change channels, it speaks the funnel you simply selected.
Squelch is a touch aggressive, but there's a control button to produce it if needed and the program enables you to definitely tweak it, but Once set, you can't affect the level in the radio, so just a little aggressive is a great factor. More often than not it wasn't an issue. My home is a reasonably hilly and wooded area and got a genuine 1.25 miles of reliable communication over that terrain. At occasions it went further, but terrain is important. Ideal for places like camp grounds, Ski Areas, and other outside venues. Not likely to work to talk with another party on the other hand from the mountain.
Based on my meter, it's outputting approximately 3 watts, not the marketed 5, but having a better antenna you may make that happen. Nevertheless, it's more effective than the majority of the radios which are offered to function on GMRS frequencies, but not just like many Pork HTs. however, it is just $30. The number is extremely similar to the $300 Motorola GMRS Sport radios I purchased twenty years ago for ski journeys. Actually, I purchased these intending is the replacements to individuals radios and I believe they're exactly what I am searching for. I additionally don't need to bother about obtaining a $300 radio wet, lost, or fall from the chairlift. I do not expect two decades useful, but they appear rugged enough that I am not expecting these to last just one outside trip. Read more › 50 Comments Was this review useful for you?

We've used these radios in excess of two days. Our rentals are 66 acres and we are able to talk in one finish to another without any noticeable improvement in reception or transmission. The terrain is moderate with countless trees an structures. Because the crows flys, distance in one finish to another is roughly 1.2 miles.
I've read many reviews on these radios and discover that those who complain or provide a minimal rating are radio-heads and techies. For general use without a great deal of distance to pay for, these radios get the job done.Comment Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback...

By Mike Reingold on September 28, 2012 Style Name: Pack of 1
Twelve Months UPDATE++ Working fine, despite multiple drops. I own 12 Baofeng radios. I've outfitted my hospital maintenance and security officials using these. Nobody wants to hold the heavy Motorols radios anymore, and when they lose a Motorola or it will get broken, you're out $$$$. They are lightweight, very simple to program, you have to purchase the cable to program. They can have some kind of voice scramble feature. These Baofeng radios try everything the large boys do at a small fraction of the cost. All of us chuckled at Hyuandai years back. Well you get the drift. I personally use the UV5R for me personally, I love to possess a screen, and scan etc. However for indicate point, and for building maintenance, they are real workhorses.
Little Update- when looking for the program- do your research like a BF 480- this can get it done. Also for those who have trouble, look at your com port. You also must contain the monitor button when activating radio stations to enter program mode. I've had this radio for handful of several weeks and they're supporting fine.When you get the program version with question marks, you will find 6 tabs on the top, File Edit etc. Third the first is language, then bottom of this drop lower selects British.5 Comments Was this review useful for you?

By Ronnie Grubb on Feb 18, 2014 Style Name: Pack of 2
I purchased these radios to make use of throughout the house and on family outings and I had been quite surprised with what I'd purchased for that cost I compensated. The radios came very nicely packaged with all of components incorporated cradle charger, battery, belt clip, Ear Piece and an antenna. After I got the units put together I had been happy with how they felt. The situation doesn't feel, and certainly does not look cheap. Once they were powered up, a voiced announces that they're actually on and then identifies what funnel radio stations is on. I voice is a touch loud and obnoxious sounding, but this is often deactivated by using the directions in an exceedingly well worded users manual. Studying this manual outlines additional features that aren't promoted within the description of product. A funnel could be designated like a "scan" funnel, CTCSS per funnel, ect and an opportune-dandy Brought included in the very best you can use like a flash light inside a pinch.
Overall this can be a very seem little radio for that cost compensated. Operationally, they perform very well. To date I've not had an opportunity to use them beyond a 2mi type of sight range, but I believe they'll beat my expectations again.2 Comments Was this review useful for you?

By Ivan on November 23, 2014 Style Name: Pack of 2
I purchased these from alwaysonline which ships from California. If you won't want to watch for them I recommend with them. I received my radios within per week after my order. I have used them for any week approximately at the office and they work great. I tested all of them with in regards to a 2 mile type of sight, (hilltop by) and these were very obvious. A few days ago I switched them on Friday after i departed work and left them onto drain the batteries and so i could charge them for that second time. Sunday morning these were working without any low battery indicator. I did not transmit in that period apart from to state 'test test'. So that they will work on standby for any least each day and one half. I use them the charger Sunday morning.
I discovered that putting them in to the charger is a touch different. I've discovered when I insert them in in an position and then type of stand them up works well with me. After charging them, up before first use, they work great. Whenever you turn them on there's a lady audible voice that states 'power on'. Then she announces what funnel you are on '8'. Whenever you change funnel she also states that. That's really handy for me personally to ensure that I haven't got to use my glasses to determine what funnel I am on.
They are good Radios and a bargin. After trying two teams of 22 and 36 mile range p.o.s. Radios, most work.Comment Was this review useful for you? Yes No Delivering feedback...
