The Talkabout MR350R VP Portable 2-Way Communication Radio (Pair) from Motorola lets you enjoy clear audio communication over long distances, and also provides emergency features if you're caught in unexpected situations. Useful for family outings, camping trips, sporting events, and more, these compact and lightweight radios are easy-to-use and have extra-large buttons that can even be operated when wearing gloves. Keypad tones let you know when you've pressed a button. The radios have a 35 mile wireless range with 22 selectable channels and 121 privacy codes to reduce interference and ensure that your conversations aren't heard by others.

The radios have 11 weather channels with 7 NOAA channels so you can stay ahead of the weather. A weather alert function keeps you aware of changing weather conditions, as well as incoming storms and dangerous conditions. The radios also have an emergency alert and a built-in LED flashlight to signal others and retain peace-of-mind during power outages. The backlit display can also be read in the dark. A Push-to-Talk Power Boost feature lets you extend transmission range by boosting the transmitter power output. This allows you to save battery life when a power boost isn't necessary.

The built-in iVOX functionality provides speakerphone-style operation for hands-free use, ideal while hiking and climbing. The radio has 20 regular call tones and alerts for low battery, busy channel, and roger beep. You can use the VibraCall silent vibrating alert feature in areas where audible alerts would be intrusive, or in loud environments where you wouldn't be able to hear them.

The radios can operate on the included rechargeable battery packs, or via 3 standard AA batteries, providing up to 9 hours of operation via the battery packs or 27 hours of operation via AA batteries. The system comes with a dual-bay drop-in desktop charger and AC adapter, as well as a mini USB car charger.

    Ok for short distances

    Comments about Motorola Talkabout MR350R VP Portable 2-Way Communication Radio (Pair):

    I bought these for a trip to Costa Rica. We had 4 cars and these came in very handy when trying to keep in touch with our 'pack' on the road. The useful distance that the packaging says should be taken with a grain of salt. I was trying to use the walkies to talk from the beach to the rest of our party at the house approx 1000m away. They did not work for that. They were helpful when we got down to the beach to try to locate each other quickly in a crowd. Good for use within a pretty close distance.

        Comments about Motorola Talkabout MR350R VP Portable 2-Way Communication Radio (Pair):

        I charged both sets of batteries, tested both sending/receiving in the house and then outside and around my garage and sound quality even on the lowest setting was clear and distinct. I then decided to take one in the car and drive down the street and still the sound quality was amazing. While I'm not expecting the full 30+ mile distance, it meets my immediate purpose of disaster planning. These will go into a faraday cage and saved for when (not if) all the power goes out due to Solar Flares or other man made causes. Communication will be key in this event and this is why I chose this model over any others because it delivers when you need it!!

        We will use these for our track and cross country teams at meets. It makes communication just a click of the button. And, communication is vital for a successful meet to be run. With ease of communication and everybody on the same page, we can make long, tedious meets a much smoother ran operation and keep things safe for the student athletes. And, the price was in our budget. Thanks to B&H, we will make next season a successful one.

        Comments about Motorola Talkabout MR350R VP Portable 2-Way Communication Radio (Pair):

        I was from Taiwan to purchase this walkie talkie for car road trip communication. Actually I bought two paris, one is Value Pack(VP) other is simple package only contain 2 handsets with standard accessories inside.
        I'd tested it in my living city where close to Taipei/Neihu edge area, it has many office building here. I am standing on the ground, my younger bro drive his car and we keep in talk by switching High/Low PTT. In the normally situation, High power can reach around 2~3km depands on what area the receiver locate, if receiver was in open area. It can very easy to touch and clear sound even distance approcing to 3Km or more. Low power distance will degrade to 1~1.5km. I already understood that advertise words said 35miles up is a junk. However, this device can touch 2~3km range already satisfied my intent. B&H also deliver package very fast to me. From USA to Taiwan only takes 4 business days. Very good for oversea's customer. I also recommanded my firends to buy this from B&H next to me. Nice product!

          Purchased these for safety reasons to carry when I am out photographing landscapes in remote places. I haven't tested the distance yet but 35 miles is claimed. Great if you are alone and want to ensure someone can find you. I keep one attached to my vehicle with a note if I don't return. Plus great to have if you happen to bump into the wrong people. Light weight as well.

            Comments about Motorola Talkabout MR350R VP Portable 2-Way Communication Radio (Pair):

            We bought these to add to the Motorola T6550 pair that we had. They have a better range and clarity than the 6550. They also come with a pair of PTT earbuds, a very nice addition.
            We use this product for skiing. It has only been used in the small mountains, but should outperform the 6550 in the bigger mountains as well.
            They are slightly bigger than the 6550, so we had to change which pockets they fit in.
