Motorola Talkabout MJ270R 2-Way Radio Review

Motorola Talkabout

Hubby is not ?a fisherman or hunter out in the wild with the boys. ?Instead he is one of the huge crowd of NASCAR fans. ?Loudon, the Poconos, Watkins Glen, Dover, Darlington, Dayona, and?Fontana are great race tracks BUT cell signal is?sporadic and unpredictable. ?Just can’t rely on reception from?portable towers set up for the race.

Smoke signals work better than today’s cell phones. ?Expect lotso,?lotso dropped and missed calls. ?There is no simple way to contact?anyone with “I forgot something so can you get me…?” ?Too many times?we have had to go off the mountain, drive into town, place some?hurried calls, then schedule more chats then go up the mountain again.

I just was asked to review what might be the best must-have summer travel gear?ever. ?It solves many of the problems of being on the?trail?incommunicado.

The Motorola Talkabout MJ270R is a two-way radio that ?Inspector Gadget would envy. ?Its dual power alkaline and NiMH rechargeable battery option, 27 mile?range, hands-free operation, flashlight, NOAA weather alerts, and Emergency alert button, make it ideal for places like theme parks,?cruise ships, and destinations without cell service.

Motorola Talkabout 2-Way Radios are available on line at Motorola.com?and Amazon.com as well as ?retailers like Radio Shack, Best Buys, and?Target. ?$69.99 guarantees ?22 channels, 121 privacy codes, 2662?combinations. ?With it,?no one can ever claim,?”You’re out of touch. ?I’m out of time. ?But I’m out of my head when?you’re not around.”

With Motorola, “Oh, oh-oh, oh, there is no reason for you not to stay?in touch.” ?Got it. ?Get it.

  1. You just gave me idea! I never thought of 2 way radio’s for our scouts, all the adults carry cell phones while we are driving in a convey to campouts, I am going to suggest them at the next meeting to see about investing in a few of these… makes it a little easier to contact someone, instead of searching for the cell phone or handing my phone to one of the guys to call someone else in the car in front of us. These have quite a few extra little perks with them.
    Thanks for the review!

  2. I think I am going to get these for the family at Christmas this year. I love seeing that there is privacy channels. We ditched our last set because someone in the valley wanted to start talking with my kids. He sounded very very creepy.
