The performance and quality of these radios are very comparable to much more expensive Motorola radios.
- Sound Quality: very good (digital)!
- Range: in my tests, as good as UHF 4W radios!
- Battery life: lasts much longer than UHF 4W radios in tests I did (with HT1250 radios).
- Features: Digital technology provides many more options such as privacy groups, and private conversations between single radios.
- FHSS technology makes them a bit more secure since the communication between the radios "HOP" very fast across many channels while transmitting/receiving.
- License FREE!! - save the $46/year Industry Canada fee.
- Customer programmable via Motorola CPS Software
a) Fairly easy to do.
b) CPS Software is free from Motorola (needs programming cable though).
c) Most other Motorola radios need expensive CPS programming software.
You can't beat these for the price!
