    REI Members get back an estimated $ 2.50 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    This pair of water-resistant Midland LXT118 2-way radios is compact, easy to use and perfect for communicating with family and friends during your outdoor adventures.

    • 22 channels offer crisp and clear communication; channel scan function automatically checks all channels for activity
    • Powerful radios communicate up to 18 miles, per the manufacturer (based on an unobstructed line of sight between you and another radio operator in good weather)
    • Auto squelch helps remove annoying background noise
    • eVOX voice activation allows easy hands-free operation
    • Keypad lock prevents accidental activation of functions and modes
    • Keystroke tones provide audible tones with each press of a key
    • Radios feature mic and headphone jacks
    • Battery life extender helps the radios use power efficiently
    • The Midland LXT118 2-way radios run on 3 AAA batteries (sold separately)

    Midland LXT118 radios operate on radio frequencies that are regulated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC); license and fees required. The communication range quoted is calculated based on an unobstructed line of sight test under optimum conditions. Actual range will vary depending on terrain and conditions, and is often less than the maximum possible. Your actual range will be limited by several factors including, but not limited to: terrain, weather conditions, electromagnetic interference, and obstructions.

    Midland LXT118 2-Way Radio - 2 Pack is rated 2.3333 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Well worth it's price It is lightweight and small enough to bring along on hiking and backpacking trips. It is cheap enough not to worry about it when in the wild. As long as you have reasonable range expectations from a device of this size/weight/cost, you won't be disappointed. When in the wild, and cell phones do not work (as they usually don't), this is a great way to communicate with your buddy leading/sweeping the hike or with your friends on the other side of the camping ground. Conveniently enough, the radio uses AAA batteries - most likely same batteries you have in your headlamp. With moderate usage, one set of batteries will last as long as inside of your headlamp...at least a few trips...

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for I took these radios to an event with LOTS of radios. One of my radios was getting constant interference on every channel and never left RX mode. It could still receive and send just fine but the constant static was unbearable. The other radio worked fine, though the speakers were too quiet to hear over all the other noise.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Missing Feature is a Deal Breaker I bought this product because it used AAA batteries. For a multi-day trip, using a home charger for radios is not an option. However, these radios are not interoperable with most FRS radios because they didn't include CTSS which is a feature that creates the feeling of sub-channels. Example, many ski areas now monitor 9-11. This radio can only transmit on channel 9 but it will not break squelch on "subchannel 11" so you will not be heard. Radios that adhere to standards should implement in such a way that it will interoperate with others in case of emergency. Thanks REI, I returned it with ease but it was a pain to find out how lame the product was
