Question Two ways

As it's a long trek this weekend I want to finally get a two way sometime this week so I can hear what you are all saying about me.

So as I know pretty much bugger all about them I just wanted to see if any of you had any advice on what I should be looking for such brands, features, prices or whatever through your experiences.

Thanks,

Re: Two ways

Hi Mate,

Yeah we mainly use the Uniden UH-040XR which you can get from Dicksmith and with abit of luck they'll sell you the talk piece for like $10-15 extra over the $99 price for the CB.

Performance is average meaning it can catch about 300-500m away. But they're light and do the job. And yes they've saved us quite a few times as well as listening to 3FB talking shyte.

Re: Two ways

Make sure its a UHF ........ thats what the guys use & it would be usless to get a CB ......

I have a Uniden but its a larger older one I nicked out of my fathers truck. The old saying you get what you pay for is never truer than with UHF radios.

The hand held jobbies are OK for small distances but if your like me ...... normally at the back of the pack or a long way from anywhere, I prefer the larger deck. Make sure you ask the sales people the distance they are meant to go & then adjust for tall buildings & huge mountains with the cheaper ones

Re: Two ways

I like the Uniden uh041 - 1Watt power, 5km range and 36hr battery
I want to get the uh041P - comes with 2 units, NiMH batteries and a twin desktop charger.

If you want 2 units at a cheaper price go for the uh036 - 3km range and 25hr battery
If you are only after 1 go for the uh041
