***** SEE MY FEEDBACK LEFT BY PURCHASERS OF THESE RADIOS *******
**** YES I can personally vouch for the 1 mile PLUS range in built up areas, GUARANTEED ! ****
Both radios are brand new, boxed, and come with a powerful rechargable battery, 2 intelligent slot in/stand in chargers with UK plugs, 2 x small rubber ariels, 2 x wrist straps, 2 x good quality earpieces with a inline microphone for use when driving, or riding a bike or security type work, the supplied earpiece/mics are approx 37" long and the mic with a PTT button is around 10" below the earpiece, they are very good quality, the walkie talkies also come with a detachable belt clip, and they come with a easy to understand instruction manual, you are also welcome to telephone me.
These Walkie Talkies give a powerful 5w output transmit power, this is 10 times more than cheap PMR walkie talkies, these Walkie Talkies WILL provide CRYSTAL CLEAR communication.
I have personally used these Walkie Talkies in built up areas and in Manchester City Centre, I can state that they have a GENUINE and TRUE range of 1 mile plus in these areas.
These walkie talkies are ideal for security work, restaurants, bars, social events, holidays, cruise ships, holiday parks, family house to house or keep in touch with elderly or poorly relatives, shop to house, building sites, farms, car to car, escorting work, courier work, boat to boat, hotels, bed and breakfast, kitchen to bar, car parks, motorbike training, shopping malls, caravan parks, camping sites, hitchhiking, restaurants, warehouses, outdoor pursuits, camping, ski-ing, hunting, fishing, horse riding, fun fairs, beach to hotels, beech to villa, road works, cable laying, crane to yard, lake to house, theme parks and generally keeping in touch or where mobile phones are to slow, have no signal or are too expensive to use, for example when you are abroad on holiday.
These Walkie Talkies are small in size, rugged and very well made, they stand approx 4" tall, are very easy to use, with 15cm rubber ariels.
The Walkie Talkies come with a new & Powerful 7.4v 1500Mah Llion rechargable battery that lasts for days, depending on the use, and each has a intelligant slot in battery charger.
The Walkie Talkies are on the UHF FM band. Channel 4 & Channel 6 are LOW power transmit output channels, using these channels will reduce the range of your walkie talkies a little but it will save & extend the battery life, so you dont have to charge them up as often, You can scan and monitor all 16 channels if you are on channel 16, and if you are on channel 16 and receive a call from someone on channel 8, your radio will automatically transmit back on channel 8. (Thanks to Ebayer Keith for this information).
So, on purchase, You will get a pair of Walkie Talkies, complete as in the above photographs numbers 1 & 2 ready for immediate use, I will personally charge and test them.
The chargers are a standard 240v 3 PIN UK plug, if you need 2 pin European chargers or 110v Canada/USA chargers let me know.
If you want any 2 of the OPTIONAL accessories: Lapel Speaker/Mic OR a Extra Battery, CHOOSE option 2 postage ONLY if you are within the UK (£25).
The walkie talkies can also be re-programmed via a computer, a CD Rom & Data lead is available from me for £6, I personally have not done this so I am just learning this side and can advise you, but see the below and please read on.
Hi I had a couple walkie talkies off you last week, I have now had time to play they are great I cant tell you how pleased I am with them, I have found them very easy to programme, I got to laugh most of the prog detail is in chinese but its easy to work out via the pictures, I have even got it to accept the pmr channels and everything else I need, ok they dont work like icoms but look at price differance a single icom will cost new around 160 quid each, and then you cant programme them yourself, if you can find a shop that can do it then thats another 75 quid plus the cost of the actual programming.

How far will a 5-watt UHF radio communicate?
An excellent question, but very difficult to answer. It depends on the following (in order of importance):
1. The height of the antennas above the average terrain.
2. The terrain itself - vegetation and buildings.
There are only two good methods to determine range. Either create an accurate computer model of the system and the terrain, or drive the area and test the coverage. Since these can be impractical at times, here are some "rules of thumb".
In flat wide-open areas, such as deserts, grasslands, and farms, vehicle-to-vehicle communications will be 2 miles on the low end and often as much as 10 miles on the high end. A base-station, either with a 15-meter tower or placed on a local hill, will reliably communicate out to 10 miles, and often out to 20-30 miles.
In a rolling hills area, such as much of Nevada, Wisconsin, or Baja Mexico, vehicle-to-vehicle range will be 1-2 miles as long as both vehicles are not in a valley. The range will often go up to 15+ miles as both vehicles crest hills. A base-station, either with a 15-meter tower or placed on a local hill, will reliably communicate out to 7 miles, and often out to 20-40 miles.
In mountainous areas or wooded hills, such as much of Colorado, Tennessee, and northern California, vehicle-to-vehicle range will be ½ - 5 miles and will also be very sporadic depending on the terrain between the vehicles. The M7 GX takes advantage of this by frequently reporting its position, so that as vehicles crest peaks, they can receive location transmissions from a long way away. Often the vehicle-to-vehicle range will be as far as 15+ miles as the vehicles both crest hills. A base-station placed on a mountain top can extend reliable communicate out to 10+ miles, and often out to as much as 50 miles.
In urban areas and cities, structures will create multi-path and interference, reducing the usable range. Communications will be very similar to operation in rolling hills. Vehicle-to-vehicle range will be 1-3 miles. A base-station either with a 15-meter tower or placed on a local hill, will reliably communicate out to 5-7 miles, and often out to 10 miles.
