A 10km line-of-sight range will allow you to keep in contact over large distances and IP67 rating means it can be submersed in up to 1m of water. Battery power can be conserved by switching to the low setting (500mW) for local communications around base camp. Includes a rechargeable Li-ion battery with a charging cradle and power supply. There are 75 voice channels and the CTCSS system reduces interference from users on other channels. Great for camping, off-road race crews, roadies, people who work at large sporting venues, and more.
