Range of up to 4km - would be good if it was anywhere near this

REALLY
Why do you need this when you've got a phone? And theres even an app for android that supports radio comms. However interference will still be an issue
Just noticed they are a pack of 3 not the pack of 2 I was looking at, am tempted to buy them now.

Same extra hand set
Can you play Angry Birds in this?
No idea about this model and modern Walkie Talkies but I did think a while back these might make great presents for children. Imagine my 8 year boy might love one to chat away with his pal up the road or maybe even his sister in the same house! But when they have all this fancy pants tech like tablets and games consoles maybe this will be kind of old hat. Perhaps its more just me, thinking how much I would have been in toy heaven to get something like this back in the late 70s. Does anyone have kids using these things? Are they any good?

Zombie apocalypse. All mobile masts and phone /data lines are down.

It's happening people.
People still use walkie talkies in the mountains, damned useful, I never travel without a set.

All radio signal is conditions dependent, mountains, weather, buildings, etc, always has been, folk that don't understand the basics don't understand their own phones are only operating because of intermediary aerials to relay signal, ..dumb people.

For instance "rabbit" phones, ...only could be used near a sign for rabbit as it was in range of their transmitters, that was early 90's

Would 2km be closer to the mark?
These were good for theme parks abroad before the advent of WiFi and international roaming
If you're only after a pair, I have personal experience of these and they are quite good: FLOUREON Rechargeable Walkie Talkies Two-Way Radio PMR 446MHZ 16 Channel Long Range Handheld Transceiver for Field Survival,Biking,Hiking(2PCS,Red) amazon.co.uk/dp/B07GN6JZB7/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_7YukEb39BYY5F

I agree totally with you.

I wouldn't go as far as inferring dumb people though?.

But each to their own I guess ... lol.

Excellent, she may be interested in radio, even become a Radio Ham... Meanwhile UHF handsets with 0.5 watts are good for 3km dependent on height, terrain and antenna these antennas are fixed so you can’t SMA or BNC an alternative on if you need a bit more welly then Boafengs Uv3 same frequency’s 2.5 watts output a decent aerial in it and you get some real range.

Ham Radio-ing is an outdated hubby!
In the age of digital electronics and high speed comms you are still talking UHF??? Lol
In 2020??? This is like buying a vcr player in 2020
Can we all just agree to agree

LOL IYO, tune into the bands and have a listen, there’s more Radio Amateurs operating now than there’s ever been. Digital modes Analogue modes SSB - FM, hooping signals of Satellites etc etc. I’m President of a Radio Society that has healthy mix of age range from 10 to 100, training courses are always booked out. CB may have died but as a training hobby the uptake in Amateur Radio is consistent.
