Would be awesome if batteries lasted
I bought 2 Brand new units yes not 1 but 2 units. 1 of the batteries were faulty and since i had 2 to communicate i wasnt able to ever use them.i bought them on ebay new from a recommended reseller and i contacted them .they we not particurlarly interested in helping and time went by.i contacted GMe and they said to send both units to check them out .of course they said it was out of warranty. and that the batteries would cost about 160 each (basically cost of handheld unit) i told them that for that price and since the handhelds were brand new and never worked it woud be better to Bin them . the guy told me he would refer to his manager and i havent heard from them since.So i am the phone to gme now and they are looking into it..and i lost both radios and wasted 600 dollars..
Great durable handheld UHF
Bought this for hunting and to be able to have a handheld radio on a quad bike without worrying about it becoming unusable in rain or dusty conditions. It's been a great find. With 5w transmit power I get excellent coverage and good battery life - plenty for a couple of days use. The handheld speaker mike it excellent as well and means I can have the radio on my belt with the mike clipped on a jacket, much easier to be able to hear messages over the noise of wind on the bike.
Bought on Ebay on special for $189
I bought the twin pack almost three years ago to use on my 100 acres and they're perfect for the job. Their main purpose is for emergencies when I'm walking or riding around the block, but they're mostly used to let me know the kettle is on. I haven't missed a morning tea yet. They're powerful (not even close to loosing signal on my block) tough (dropped them on numerous occasions), water proof (apparently, haven't tested that yet) and easy to use. The calling tone is also a useful feature as are the extra plug in mics which came with the twin pack. The battery life is also excellent. I'm so happy with them I plan on getting a GME unit for the ute. Highly recommended.
Good radio for the price
A solid and reliable UHF radio with good performance at a fantastic price (purchased for $248 price matched). It's water proof, dust proof, and the lithium ion batteries last a long time.
Very happy with this purchase.
