Good range – UCOM 8-KM/5-Mile Walkie Talkie (2-Pack) Reviews

posted by isotco on 05/04/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
- Long range.
- Works with aa nimh rechargable batteries.
- Illuminated display.
- Has both jack for charging and external mic/speaker.
- Rubber buttons.
Cons:
- PTT Button is a bit flimsy.
- Has no real "low" volume.
- Fixed antenna, it doesn't unscrew.
Other:
Has 8 Channels, has listen mode (no autosquelch) and call button.
Fair range, about 2x the range of another pair I have that's rated 3 KM.
Could have been made a little smaller, they're not really bulky. But they could have been a little smaller.
Bottomline:
Good walkie talkie. The PTT button could have a better feel, but thats not really a big issue.
