i bought these two walkie talkies early this season and have found them to be invaluable in many ways. i would recommend them to anyone for their respective pursuits. Communications can be vital and i was reminded of this only the other week. My mates dog had ran a roe we had accidentally spooked and his dog disappeared...My mate waited where we had last seen the dog whilst i went looking for him, i eventually found him nearly half a mile away around the other end of a sewage works. The dog had been unable; to return due to a very high fence....whats could have been a disaster had a happy ending....recommended! :yes: JD

i beleive they cost about £60 for my pair, but the price is coming down. Currently argos had a set of four for £60 and i know they are good. These BT ones have great range on them. Personally , i would never try to beat woods or go lamping without them....Its so invaluable to know whats going on... :angel:

:D not doubting it reload just the ones i come across i think are four kilometres.
was told if there were any above that range they would have to subject to some kind of licence.
i like the sound of your mates as four kilometres is no good to me and would like to know more about this licence buisness :yes:

Quite right Rob

The ones we use for filming are good to five miles but hard to nick, the production staff get a real bollocking if any go missing , so I reckon they cost a few quid.
