Excerpt: Overall okay. Doesn't have that good over a battery life though.my friend and I don't even live a mile apart from each other and the radios aren't working. at some points, i can only hear static. but when we were in the same house, they worked perfectly.
Summary: Ya know, I never expected these to go 35 miles. Not even in a desert. I never expected 15 miles out of them. But I won't lie, with a 35 mile rating, I expected a good 2-5 miles. Try half a mile TOPS. Disappointed. Waste of money.
Pros: Long battery life. Clear sound. Extra channels for more privacy. Instant weather channel button.
Cons: My brother can literally drive .3 miles down the road to his house... and we can hardly hear each other on them.
Excerpt: The two problems we ran into were that the belt clips on the back tend to break off, and the knobs on the top (off/on nd volume) also tend to come off. That's a quality related issue. Other than that, we've been pleased.
Excerpt: I recommend the MR350R for open places, such as parks and fields. Not recommend for cities, since the interference affecting the scope of the radii, is reduced to a minimum of approximately 2 km.
Pros: I have tested this in urban living and its not very good but on the open road and parks its simply amazing. City use is heavily discouraged if you have tons of buildings. Its a wonderful product get it for open space use
Excerpt: I run an emergency response team for my community and we needed communication that would cover our development. I tried cheaper, less mile coverage sets and even with flat ground, the buildings blocked the signal.
Pros: Clear Signal, Easy To Use, Good Audio, Lightweight, Rugged
Excerpt: I used to talk to my wife inside the malls and Miamia Orlando and at some points we can not communicate, we had to leave the store. The range of 35 miles is far fetched. But imagine 20 miles or so. If you can, buy a more powerful one. However, in the battery served well, lasting the entire day.
