Years ago my kids begged for walkie talkies. After deciding they could be a lot of fun, especially since we have a fairly large yard we got some. And then we realized living close to a highway means trucker talk on the walkie talkie with the kids, oops. Needless to say that did not go the way I expected. Instead of hours of fun, I had to monitor closely and it just wasn’t worth it. What I did not realize is that what I really needed was 2-way radios! Last year I discovered that my iPhone hates the cold, as in it shuts off no matter the battery level. As a mom who relies on her phone to communicate with her family this presents a huge problem. We have 5 kids and that means my husband and I often have to divide and conquer. When we are apart I need to be able to get in touch with him, specially if an emergency occurs. This year my kids are becoming more proficient at skiing and they can do some runs by themselves while we split up to help the younger kids. I need to be able to communicate with my daughter and the Motorola Talkabout T600 H20 from Motorola Solutions is perfect for that. Not only is it practical with a range of 35 miles but it has tons of other great faetures! That means no matter where she is on the hill I can communicate with her.
These 2 way radios have proven to be so much fun to use. The kids love talking to each other on them, they even took them outside sledding. Hide and seek with a 2-way radio is so much fun! The Motorola Talkabout T600 H20 has so many features that make it ideal for outdoor enthusiasts. In the summer we go camping in an area with spotty cell service and I can’t wait to take these with us. That way when someone goes on a hike they can still communicate. I also plan on using these on the boat this summer so those on the lake can talk to those back at the house and it is waterproof, perfect! Among the many cool features of these 2-way radios are: ability to float, a water-activated flashlight, whistle belt clip, flashlight, vibrate option and an emergency alert system. When the alert button is activated, the radio transmits an alert siren followed by transmission of spoken or incidental sounds to the other radio (and it is loud). You can also check the weather by tuning in to one of 11 weather stations. It’s the Swiss Army knife of radios! The radios are rechargeable and have a long battery life so you can enjoy your outdoor adventure.
