My family and I love being outdoors, from camping to outdoors sports. With the new school year here, we are pretty busy with sports and other activities. To help us with communication, we were sent a pair of the Motorola Talkbabout Two Way Radios for review. These are perfect for taking to the park. I can leave one at home with my husband and he can keep in touch if needed. If a emergency comes up and say my husband is on the phone or I just cant get through, having a walkie talkie on me can come in handy!
Another great thing that I found about having these walkie talkies handy was when I had to take my daughter to her practice at the park, my son was able to update me on what he was doing with his dad at the house. These great two way radios have a 27 mile radius, which has been fun to test out. There is also a light on the bottom of these radios which can make for a great flash light in the night time. Having two way radios can be crucial when emergencies arise. They will also come in handy on our next camping trip!!! Another great feature is that for a limited time you can customize your two way radios with some great colorful faceplates! There are a total of 10 different colors to choose from. The designer faceplate promotion runs
through December 31st., 2011 and is valid

MR350RVP and MJ270R Talkabout 2-way

asked to fill out the promo code provided on
the pack to receive your choice of free designer
faceplates (includes two faceplates).
TOTAL EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS
The MJ270R includes an emergency alert feature, allowing you to enjoy your escape to the great outdoors with confidence that others can be informed of any dangers that may come your way. When the alert button is activated, the radio transmits an alert siren followed by transmission of spoken or incidental sounds. This allows you to send the signal to other radios and warn of impending danger. The MJ270R also features a built-in LED flashlight for peace-of-mind during evening adventures or unexpected emergencies and power outages.
**NOAA WEATHER CHANNEL
Want to keep in touch with changing weather conditions during your family camping adventure? No need to stop the fun — weather alerts will provide your group with warnings of incoming storms or dangerous conditions. And, by tuning in to one of 7 NOAA channels (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) on your MJ270, you will always know what to pack with continuous local and regional weather broadcasting.
The Talkabout® MJ270 has full 22-frequency capacity with 121 privacy codes to reduce interruptions. The Motorola QT (Quiet talk) functionality allows the radios to be set so they can communicate with other compatible Motorola products, adding yet another level of distinction from the other manufacturers.
When you are hiking up a steep mountain trail, you really need to keep your hands free to brace the rocky terrain. With iVOX acting like a speakerphone and allowing hands-free communication, you can keep on moving without stopping to answer a call.
EASY CHARGE – 4 WAYS TO CHARGE
Designed to fit every lifestyle, the MJ270R allows you the convenience of charging four distinct ways. Use the provided desktop charger at home or a mini-USB car cable on your way to soccer practice. Pack a mini-USB wall cable for recharge in the hotel during your family vacation or simply charge from your PC when no power outlet is available using a mini-USB PC cable. (Mini-USB car, wall and PC cables are sold separately.)
