Great radios and have plenty of volume. When we used these among the field, bushes and trees a distance of 1/4 mile plus, they performed wonderfully! I recommend lithium batteries. My experience with Energizer Advanced or Ultimate Lithium ones shows that they will take a charge boost for extra usage. And they come in packs of four, which you need. Nice rubberized front buttons. Rugged. One dropped to the floor accidently and no harm was done. Easy to program. Read the manual first. Being a value club member helps. Ordering another pair I was so impressed with them.
