    I have used this radio in Open field and heavily obstructed situations, and it was only restricted by obstructions, but not completely. While driving in the neighborhood I could call home from 2 miles away in heavy obstruction and traffic in a closed truck.

    Not so great

    Radios went off frequency, unable to connect to each other after almost no use and one-and-a-half years after purchase.

    Buy Motorola radios and live a good life.

      Easy to use and wear .like the ear buds. I like the fact that some one else can trigger the animal calls when we are in a spot where I can't do it myself.

              I used these radios to help find my cousin that gets lost everytime we enter the woods. I could talk to him and figur out were he was by describing the area he was in to me.
              I love the fact that these radios come already to go. All I did was put the batterys in place on the charger for a few hours and then off I went to the woods. And they worked great!!!
