Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very light weight, excellent for the price. My brother is a light weight backpacking fanatic, and refused to carry walkie-talkies. But when he saw how small and light these were, he agreed to take one with him. Turned out very useful when we split up looking for water sources on the Mogollon Rim in Arizona. I can't say what the real effective range is, but the sound is clear and loud, and they worked perfectly well up to the quarter mile or so we separated in hilly, forested terrain. They are not professional instruments, but they are not children's toys either (though they could be used that way).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Range depends on channel I already reviewed this product last year, but couldn't find how to edit a review. I just want to point out to those complaining about the poor range that these operate in two modes, FRS and GMRS, depending on which channel you select. In FRS transmission is limited to 1/2 watt and range will be quite limited. GMRS transmission is up to 2 watts. In particular, (according to Wikipedia) channels 8 - 14 are mandated by the FCC to be FRS only, and therefore low power. Channels 1-7 can be used by either FRS or GMRS, but I don't know specifically how this model uses those channels. And Channels 15 - 22 are GMRS only. So before complaining about poor range, make sure you have tried them on one of the GMRS channels.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage I purchased these today in hopes that my child could take this with her when going to her friends house down the street or the neighborhood park which is less than half a mile away so I may communicate with her. Upon testing it out, they worked for the first 300 yards and anything after that there was no communication not even static. Needless to say these will be going back to REI tomorrow

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the money These did not work more than 1-2 miles. They are not worth the money. I returned them and bought more expensive model and it works 1000x better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from good price, light weight Decent quality, plenty of features. Note - doesn't seem to be a VOX feature (it was not defined in the brief manual, but I assume it to be Voice Operated)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fun for kids to use and keep track of the,m I bought these for my kids to use while exploring the outdoors. Walkie talkies make everything more fun. The are easy to use. The kids can manage them easily. Switching channels is easy. They are light weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not toys Small lightweight but good radios with clear sound and additional features. Love them and I have four of them. Very useful for walks with kids.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from These are worse than the toy versions I bought these expecting to get a mile or so of reception, however, in a woodland setting they send/receive at less than 500yds. They are therefore completely useless for camping/hiking with the kids. Also, on our first use, one of the units turned itself off (no battery issue as they were newly inserted) and would not turn back on. They work less well than the toy ones we bought for the kids when they were very little.

Hi, could I get 6 of these and have them all talk to each other?

Asked by: Var
Yes, they are FRS radios, so they'll work with any other FRS radio, as long as you're on the same channel and sub-frequency. We use a variety of these when out hiking.
