The MH230R Talkabout 2-Way Radio (3-Pack) from Motorola provides high-quality communication, ideal for keeping in touch while camping, shopping in groups, and more. Each compact and lightweight radio has a wireless range of up to 23 miles so you can stay in constant communication. There are 22 frequencies and 121 privacy codes to minimize interruptions. The Quiet Talk feature lets you set the radios to only communicate with other compatible Motorola products to further reduce crosstalk and enhance privacy.

The radios have 11 weather channels (7 NOAA), so you can stay up-to-date on local and regional weather forecasts. Weather alerts will provide warnings of sudden incoming weather and storms so you can act quickly. In addition to standard push-to-talk functionality, the radios have iVOX technology for hands-free use. iVOX works like a speakerphone, so you can chat without stopping what you're doing for maximum safety and convenience. The included belt clips let you attach the radios to clothing or gear for complete hands-free use.

Each radio has an internal NiMH rechargeable battery pack that provides up to 8 hours of operation. You can charge the radios at home using the included dual-charger and adapter. The standard mini USB connection also lets you use a mini USB cable for charging on the road from a car, wall outlet, or computer. You can also use standard AAA batteries in the radios, which provide up to 10 hours of operation. The bright yellow coloring on the radios makes them easy to spot, especially in outdoor environments.

Note! Range is calculated under optimum conditions and will vary depending on terrain, weather conditions, and obstructions. Car, wall, and PC USB cables sold separately.

      Although haven't really taken 100% out of them can tell that these 2-way radios are simply great. Clean and quiet talk and a fabulous range. The push-to-talk functionality makes it even better. Looking forward to take them to the high country next month (Trestle Bike Park @ Winter Park, CO) for some downhill mountain biking and keeping in touch with my fellow riders at the very same time.

        I teach video production in high school. These 2 way radios offer long range so that I am able to keep in contact with all of my students as they're shooting throughout the school grounds.

        Good and bad

        By Cinema4Events

        from LA

        Comments about Motorola MH230R Talkabout 2-Way Radio (3-Pack):

        My company had purchased these walkie talkies for our weddings and evens that we film. They are great in the way that the battery lasts long and they are compact. They are bad in the way that the headsets they come with are horrible. They sound very muffled and you can't understand what the other person is saying. We needed the headsets because other people at the wedding, especially during the ceremony should not hear us. Over all if you don't need to use the headsets then it's a great walkie

              I'm a PhotoJournalist that cover sports and local events and this little "yellow" units is just the right size and the color "yellow" is cool to spot if dropped in the dark or at camping on the beach at night. The attached ear piece is awesome for me and my assistant when their is loud yelling and loud music. Again for me it's a great unit, but other users who have bad hearing, may say other words?

                  I used these for a wedding videography job and they did the trick! I have used expensive radio systems that left our voices more audible and could be used by talking quieter, but for under 100 you can't beat the quality. The range, while not 36 miles in real circumstances is several miles and is clear if spoken at a medium tone of voice.

                      I use it in a photo studio where 2 shifts are run in 13hrs, the rechargeable batteries give up before the first shift ends and there is no time to charge. Apart from that, the gadget is performing properly. It is light and easy to carry while working. Since we started using it, staff have felt an ease in service.

                                    Our six-year-old has recently gotten a dog, and he wants to walk him by himself. He's too young for a cell phone, but these little radios work well.

                                    The good:
                                    * Durable
                                    * Comes with rechargeable battery pack
                                    * Will also run on regular or rechargeable AAA cells

                                    The so-so:
                                    * Setup can be a bit tricky if you're not going to use the default channel and code.
                                    * The listed range of 20+ miles is under ideal conditions (i.e. in outer space), but it's good enough for around the neighborhood.
                                    * Sold as a 3-pack, but the charger is a dual charger. In practice, with light to moderate use, this is a non-issue.

                                          I wish the walky talky came with another charger for the 3rd unit. They work well and have multiple channels and are simple to use.

                                            Although haven't really taken 100% out of them can tell that these 2-way radios are simply great. Clean and quiet talk and a fabulous range. The push-to-talk functionality makes it even better. Looking forward to take them to the high country next month (Trestle Bike Park @ Winter Park, CO) for some downhill mountain biking and keeping in touch with my fellow riders at the very same time.

                                              Using it for events coordination and for my photo team. Works very well. And with the hands free, using it during photo coverage frees up your hand
