    Bought these to replace old set I had been using for communicating on 4000 acre deer lease. Quality of sound is great at any location on the ranch so far and the number of channels lets me find a channel others are not using locally. Battery power holds up all day and extra weather scan is a bonus with these radios

    These are great radios. However, that is not what makes them rather unique. They are chargeable via USB! There are micro-USB ports on the sides, and it also comes with a cradle featuring a micro-USB jack, and can hold and charge both radios at the same time. The only other company doing this is Cobra, but they have apparently discontinued all of their GMRS products... Take that for what it is worth. These radios feature all of the usual stuff that you would expect in a higher-end model: decent amount of power, the full 21 channels, coded squelch, and NOAA weather receive. One thing to note is that this model ONLY has 21 channels, as that is all that you can have by LAW. Channels 22 and up are just a repeat of the other channels and up, but with preset coded squelch: in other words, a useless marketing gimmick. Also keep in mind that the FRS-only frequencies are limited to 1/2 watt by law, and the manual does not go out of its way to tell you this.
