      Comments about Midland XT511 Base Camp Two-Way Radio:

      Great base station that works with FRS/GMRS walkie-talkies. Hand crank power is good for emergency situations. The multiple power sources give you many options. Sound quality is excellent on all bands (AM/FM/WX/GRMS). Transmit/Receive range is acceptable on GRMS.

          This is a good product because it picks up signals very good and has the fm radio. Has a crank so you never need batteries. A nice all around product.
