Untitled Review
The radio and its features worked fine, but I found the range to be limited and the transmitter underpowered. All of the Motorola two-way radios are of good quality and this one is no exception. However, for the money, I think you're better off paying a little more for a T7200 just to get that extra mile or so of coverage.
