one four, one four for a copy.....
In my experience (2 different binatone PMR sets) reliability is an issue (as with Binatone telephones too).

I would look elsewhere for PMRs for skiing usage. Motorola (which is what everyone uses) dont seem as good as some of other cheaper brands I have tried/owned, so each set needs to be judged on its own merit.

YMMV, but IMO the signal strenght/ audio/ build quality does vary greatly.
I bought two sets of two a few months ago for use in the disney theme parks.
Batteries last about 1 day, range is OK, but not fabulous - I'd say between 1/2 and 1 mile in a built up area.
Good enough for keeping in contact on days out, but I wouldnt recommend them for any serious walkers expecting the full range out of them.

Build quality is very good.
