For security reasons, I purchased these radios. Their price made me hesitant to buy them. Previously I bought some baofeng radios, but they didn’t meet my needs, so I bought these. They’ve been with me for two days and I’ve been testing them after getting them charged. To date, I’ve only been able to set them up to communicate with the other radios in the package, but let me tell you that these are well worth the money I spent. 

Leaving one with my brother and walking 800 yards down the highway, they still picked up just fine. Transmitter transmission that feels like it’s built like a tank, and easy to use. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a good radio for security patrols, keeping in touch with family after a cellphone goes down, or just to keep in touch with family on your property.
