Motorola talkabout radios are the best of the best as far as many parents are concerned. These two way radios allow families to stay connected without having to use a beeper service or a cellular phone, which can end up costing more money than you anticipated on fees and roaming charges. You may have to pay more up front for each radio, but then you are done, as there are no monthly fees or service plans to adhere to.

Users of Motorola Talkabout two way radios have access to 14 channels on the Family Radio Service (FRS) and 38 interference eliminators--which gives you a grand total of 532 different user combinations! FRS is a re-classified band of radio frequencies which the Federal Communications Commission has specified for family and outdoor recreational use. Keep in mind that to speak to speak to other people in your group, you must all be set to the same channel and code.

Clear Communication with Motorola Talkabout

Probably one of the greatest features about Motorola Talkabout radios is that they are virtually static-free, for up to five miles, depending on the model you get and the terrain that you are in. They are also shock, vibration, and water-resistant, which is perfect for the times that you are outside in the elements for extended periods. You can take them camping in the mountain, at the beach, or anywhere else in the great outdoors and they will not fail you, even during inclement weather conditions.

These wonderful two way radios come with belt clips for easier handling, as well as a low battery indicator that chirps when you need to recharge the batteries. Most models run on 3 AA batteries which will provide you with approximately 30 hours of usage before they need to be recharged. Best of all, they are simple to use. . .you just hit the "push to talk" button, and you are connected. You have no pager service plans, cellular plans, or any other monthly plan to worry about when you use these radios. Your only fee is the cost of the radios, then you can talk away to your heart's content.
