I don’t know how it works for you, dear reader, but for me it seems that the number of commercials a cell-service provider runs extolling the excellent reach and strength of their signal runs in direct–and inverse–proportion to how well that cell service actually works once I’m a few miles away from the nearest road. Losing the ability to communicate with members of one’s hunting party is not just maddening; it’s actually a safety hazard. Even young, fit people can suffer a medical emergency in the backwoods, and no matter how fancy one’s cell phone is, if there’s no signal there’s no signal. That’s why more and more hunters, hikers, and campers are turning back to the tried-and-true technology of the two-way radio to keep in touch…and that’s why I’m excited to hear about the new Motorola T265 Rechargeable Two-Way Radios Sportsman Edition in Realtree Xtra Camo.
These Realtree camo TALKABOUT walkie-talkies offers up to a 25-mile range, as well as emergency features and silent hands-free communication. They offer a push-to-talk button, as well as silent hands-free communication just in case you’ve got eyes on a nice (but spooky) trophy buck or bull. With a Realtree Xtra camo carry case, this two-way radio system will let you fully enjoy your wilderness adventure.
