Any outdoor person knows the importance of being able to communicate no matter where you are. Whether you are hiking, fishing, hunting, skiing or camping, just being away from other people, you need some kind of contact in case of emergencies. You can not always count on cell service. So what do you do? Motorola has the answer with their Talkabout™ T460 walkie talkies.

This makes it easy to find an available channel that you won’t have to worry about interference or others on the frequency. Getting help in an emergency is simple. Press the emergency alert button and the radio with transmit an alert siren that is followed by spoken or incidental sounds. This will allow others to know that you have an emergency.
There are two ways to power your radio. You can use NiMH rechargeable batteries included for up to 10 hours, or use 3 AA batteries on the go for up to 26 hours.
