Affordable entry level walkie talkie ideal for travelling out of cell range, backing up vehicles or handing to the new kid without losing sleep if it isn't returned.

Ordered on website, was at my door next day. They pick up the phone and answer questions. It is great to have good people a phone call away! You won't get that on Amazon!
i like the radio that i thank iam going to buy another one for the shop i thank it will be nice when we are using the crane and picking heavy objects when theres only two of us its kinda hard to see around hood or cab or machinery and we dont have to yell. thanks
I finally was able to test out these radios to see if they met my need and expectation. Short answer, yes. I was able to use the radio both as a scanner and also "in pit" (meaning desert) communications between car and crew member. Range was not fantastic but certainly as expected, the scanner function was a bit clumsy but overall worked as I hoped. "Mac Daddy" Kenwood in the chase truck will stay there, but when moving around pits, talking to car during testing, they worked better than I would have expected.
The price was so good I had to buy a pair, and so far I am surprised with the quality. I wanted small handheld radios for use around the pit area in the desert, and also as a "scanner" to allow the main Kenwood in the chase vehicle to stay on the race channel while the handheld monitored Weatherman and potentially other relevant channels. So far I can't say if this will work, but as a small handheld radio is seems like a fantastic value and works well.
Thanks also to PCI for their usual great service.
Great radio. Easy to use.
