Thread: Two way radios

  1. #1

    Default Two way radios

    What brand of two way radios do you like? Had a set of Motorolas that gave very good service but they are shot and need to be replaced. Also where is a good place to buy the radios?

    I would stick with the Motorolas.

    I have a set of the motorolas, bought at academy sports. Great radios. I also got a set of uniden radios at bass pro shop that are submersible and float for whoever is in or around the water. They seem to work well, but I've only had them since Christmas. Since my kids are my birdboys I feel good giving them the wterproof submersible radios when they are by the water. The radios all talk to each other so we have 4 radios. One for me and one for each gun in the field. I don't know how we did it before we had the radios. Also get the yellow ones. You can find them if someone drops one in the field.

    Yeah, don't buy camo radios! I have paint parts of mine blaze orange and added blaze orange duct tape which can be found at Ace Hardware. In fact I try to get everything in blaze orange.

    I've had lots of motorolas that were OK. I've been very happy with the new Garmin's that I got this fall. They are clearer and have better range. But every model is different no matter the manufacturer.

    This is what I use. Fantastic radios. Here they are at Wal Mart

    I also have two of these radios. Makes you feel good around the water and you can take them duck hunting. I was surprised how much we needed them hunting in the swamp this year. You wouldn't think you would split up as much but we used them.
