Summary: I've used my set of "Micro-Talk" radios for close to ten years. They proved to be the most reliable and dependable hand-held radios I've used. Easy to understand and simple to use, this set has helped when I was moving to a new home, running airshows, and parking cars for large events.
Excerpt: I've always preferred Cobra FRS radios and these are no exception. Easy to set up, has NOAA weather radio built in and good mic pickup and speaker output. Wish they still came with the earphone/external mic, the jack is there but you have to buy it separately.
Excerpt: For communications on RV and camping/hiking trips as well as while shopping in the store. Subs for the cell phones when the phones have bad receptions, these things work well!! Shipping quick and packaging top notch with no customer service issues what so ever!
Excerpt: Had a set of Cobra 2-way radios for over 10 years; my wife and I use them to keep in touch while shopping at [@], [@] and any other large area, even use them to keep in touch when I"m working out on our acreage - they are GREAT!
Pros: Clear Signal, Easy To Use, Good Audio, Lightweight, Rechargeble Batteries, Rugged
Summary: I bought these for deer hunting. They work fine as long as you are within a 1/4 mile. We tried talking with a line of sight of 3 miles and had no contact. Go with something cheap and save your money.
