Summary: I bought these so my Scout Troop could do their Adventurer level hike and Leaders could be nearby without interfering. Mountainous area, great reception. I'm in Australia so can't comment on USA weather alert features.
Summary: We haven't use them much yet but when we have they did very well. We use them when we ride our ATV's so we can keep in touch. The only thing we didn't care for was the head set. It was hard to keep on and was very uncomfortable.
Summary: Me & a fellow pilot purchased this to communicate between us when we fly and so far it has been great. Clear and understandable. Have talked to each other about 18 miles apart at 900' so far. The various channels and sub channels aren't explained very well in the manual.
Summary: I have used other brand radios for communitcating with staff with limited success...this midland radio surpasses all others that I have tried. The voice clarity is excellent.
Of course, the 30 mile claim is far from accurate.
Summary: These radios have been on the market since mid July. They far surpass the older midland radios in power, features, and ease of user interface.
Pros: Good power and great clarity. These are not toys for the kids-they are real radios. They have adult application. They work well with older Midland models like the 808. A good buy overall and the best at the current time in my opinion.
Cons: Animal sounds are weak.(No Big Deal) The supplied headphone is not as good as the behind-the-neck model. Users of the high power channels are supposed to get a FCC License for about 80 bones. Hardly anyone complies. I use mine in Mexico. New Egg was late to get these. AAmazon has them for 10 bone...
Conclusion: RADIOS MIDLAND MOD GXT1000 LA VERDAD TIENEN UN MUY BUEN ALCANSE YO LOS HE ESTADO USANDO Y TIENEN UN EXELENTE ALCANCE EN CIUDAD HA DADO UN ALCANSE DE ASTA UNOS 4 KM CON TODO Y EDIFICIOS LOS RECOMIENDO BASTANTE A LOS QUE LO QUIERAN COMPRAR, ESO SI, SI QUIEREN QUE LES DE UN BUEN ALCANCE UNICAMENTE...
Pros: MUY BUEN DISEÑO ERGONÓMICO, CÓMODOS Y FÁCILES DE USAR, LA BATERIA QUE TRAE INCLUIDA DURA BASTANTE TIEMPO UNOS 2 DIAS Y 2 NOCHES CON USO REGULAR, EXECELNTE ALCANCE, EN CIUDAD ME HAN DADO HASTA 4 KM CON TODO Y EDIFICIOS, NO SON NADA PESADOS CASI PESAN LO MISMO QUE UN CELULAR, TIENEN DOS SISTEMA DE ...
Cons: EL MANUAL ESTA EN INGLES Y PARA LOS QUE QUIERAN USAR TODAS LAS FUNCIONES DEL RADIO SE LES COMPLICARA UN POCO SOLO ABRA QUE TRADUCIRLO, EL CARGADOR NO INDICA CUANDO ESTA LLENA LA BATERÍA
Conclusion: pesimo quisiera una recomendacion de un equipo potente
Pros: EL DISEÑO ES BONITO
Cons: el alcance compre uno de 52 milla y realemte alcanza como 500 metros realmente es un equipo que no sirve podriamos decir para nada de alcanze a mi punto de vista NO LO RECOMIENDO, ojala me pudieran recomendar un radio que realmente tenga buen alcance
