Okay, so in order to talk shit over the air with my fellow maggot bretheren on the 5-13 channel, what kind of radios do youse guys reccomend?"There is a hell of a huge difference between skiing as a sport- or even as a lifestyle- and skiing as an industry"

Kenwood Freetalk XL.
They cost, but there damn rugged and they have better range then any of those crappy little ones you get at walmart or bestbuy.

why bother shelling out for a kenwood when the other person won't have that "legendary kenwood audio"
just get a Motorola 1W or go for the real thing and buy a 2m/70cm HT and get your amateur ticket
most people will have a PoS 0.5W midland or whatever wallyworld sellsOriginally Posted by blurred

OK, so I'm thinking about getting a pair of these. For what I can see, between about $30 and $80 they all look to be .5 watt w/ 1 watt being more expensive. What are the other features I need? Why are their so many options. Can anyone suggest specific models that are availible cheaply?

I don't mind paying a little more for something that works well and is build right.

I just got a pair of cheapo Motorola Talkabouts from radioshack, would usually not guy Motorola since I know it's overpriced but it was on sale for a good value. Works well enough at the resort (have tested opposite sides/elevations at Louise/Sunshine) and it works except for no line of sight at long distance (frontside near top of Platter at Louise to base of Larch). Charge seems to last 3-4 days of skiing with moderate use. So much better than "I'll meet you at the top of this chair at XX hours" or "meet at this chair after this run" or "why are you standing there waiting for me I blew by you 2minutes ago"
