We chose these specific radios after a lot of discussion with the staff at buytwowayradio.com. We wanted something durable and something we could trust when all else fails.
Half of a radio setup is the antenna. We chose to go with four types of antennas based on our needs. One is a base station fiber glass antenn, second is a magnetic with short antenna for one vehicle that we wanted low profile, third was a hood mount with a taller antenna, and forth is a magnetic base with a three foot antenna.
The quality is very apparent. We tried several less expensive radios and decided to pay for a higher quality. The microphone feels solid in our hands as does the cable connecting to the radio. The radio selection buttons and screen are very clear and buttons are firm to the touch.
