The Motorola MR355R Talkabout Two-Way Radios enable long-distance communication in rough outdoor environments. Each radio has a compact and lightweight design with a wireless range of up to 35 miles.

A Quiet Talk filter minimize excess noise for clear communication. There are 8 repeater channels, which allow the radios to work with a local repeater station to improve your signal range. Eleven (7 NOAA) weather channels are available so you can stay aware of the weather during your outdoor adventures. Weather alerts provide warnings of incoming storms or dangerous conditions.

The included belt clips also facilitate hands-free use. Each radio has a rechargeable NiMH battery that offers up to 8 hours of operation.

      Used by a hunting group in very hilly iron country, reliable reception is a prime consideration. These Motorola units have performed admirably, even at the fringe of the range we use them at. Never more than 5 miles apart, we've been disappointed by competitors 18-20 mile units.

      While still relatively new, Motorola was chosen on the history of their quality and range of accessories. Our use has shown that heavy use is better powered by alkaline or lithium batteries rather than the rechargeable pack that come with the units.

      This product seems adequate but not ideal for our organization's needs. We use it to communicate throughout the large building our company occupies. It's a very nice looking product and fairly easy to learn to use. It's also fairly easy to use once you figure this out, and nicely constructed.

      For now, there are very nice and cool to use.
      I haven't tried them for a long distance, but the features are very interestings, and well explained in the manual.

      You can also change the front image for cry orange to be better seing outside in the snow.

      I recommend it

                  I have not owned walkie talkies since I was a kid. They have evolved into a very high tech device with lots of features. I bought these for my son after he got some toy ones for his birthday that are useless. We have not fully learned all of the features but I tested driving from home to work. I was able to clearly communicate to inside of the house at about 5 miles if I was at a high enough elevation. I would lose communication when I went below hills. Weather radio and built in light are cool. Have not used enough yet to give 5 stars.

                        Used by a hunting group in very hilly iron country, reliable reception is a prime consideration. These Motorola units have performed admirably, even at the fringe of the range we use them at. Never more than 5 miles apart, we've been disappointed by competitors 18-20 mile units.

                        While still relatively new, Motorola was chosen on the history of their quality and range of accessories. Our use has shown that heavy use is better powered by alkaline or lithium batteries rather than the rechargeable pack that come with the units.

                        Comments about Motorola MR355R Talkabout Two-Way Radio (Pair):

                        This product seems adequate but not ideal for our organization's needs. We use it to communicate throughout the large building our company occupies. It's a very nice looking product and fairly easy to learn to use. It's also fairly easy to use once you figure this out, and nicely constructed.
