Comments about Midland GXT2000VP4 22-Channel 2-Way Radios:

I have wanted to purchase a set of GXT2000VP4 2- way radios for quite awhile. Since Midland upgraded their batteries from the prior model to the new Lithium Polymer.
First off, B&H had a fantastic price AND INCLUDED FREE SHIPPING!! Just got these last week.

The radios are solid and good sized. You can spend about 2/3rd the price on Cobra or Motorola "family radios" but you get far less of a product. I've had both those brands before.

These are not toys - but real radios.
I live in hilly terrain, and though the distance is limited due to lack of line-of-sight, the quality of the audio really impressed me.

Having WX alerts is really nice. Especially this week here in California we had a whopper of a storm this week.

Back to the radios. The important things: high quality voice/audio; so far the battery charge seems like they last a significant time before needing to recharge (I guess that depends on the amount of TX you are doing); and again, I am really impressed by the fact that the radio is compact but solid. Feels like a pro quality unit.
If I can come back and update after a few months of use, I'll do so.

If someone is looking for a quality radio set, I would, based on what I've experienced so far, recommend these. The only negative at this point is the included earpiece/boom mic. Doesn't fit my ear that well but I can find a custom earpiece with PTT that will fit.

    Comments about Midland GXT2000VP4 22-Channel 2-Way Radios:

    I did my research & I found:

    1) Forget the 36 miles:
    Technically they're not lying, supposedly these units reach 36 miles BUT in the best possible scenario, that is NO obstructions (building, mountains, hills, dense vegetation, etc) So 36 miles should be only when you're been transmitting from top of a mountain & your partner is on another top of mountain) or in open waters.

    2) For city use, expect 3/4 of a mile to a 1.5 miles depending environments.

    3) Some Midland batteries have issues (they disconnect and/or behave erratically (showing low bat) even been full charged.
    DO NOT SEND BACK YOUR UNITS, just the batteries, as units (go and run a check) THEY WORK FINE with AA batteries.

    4) READ YOUR MANUAL
    Identify with channels are Family Radio Service (FRS) and General Mobile Radio Service (GMRS). In plain English for maximum reach you'll need an FCC license for GMRS use. (just google for FCC 605 Main Form)

    The license is $85 for 5 years and 1 license covers all your family members for using these units. (In case of emergency anyone can operate, licensed or not)

    RESPECT THE USE OF FREQUENCIES, I don't know how FCC enforce the law, but keep in mind that the use of these frequencies CAN SAVE LIVES.

    Hope this humble review informs and helps you decide as many users comments helped me in the past.
