Cobra PR 5000-2 DX VP microTALK 15-Mile FRS GMRS 2-Way Radios Review:
Listed as upto a 15-mile range, but in normal use settings it struggled beyond 3-5 miles. A pretty good set at a good price - but performance was average - a fair amount of 'cut outs' in transmissions. Plenty of channels and privacy codes (22 & 38) for lots of combinations. Has a jack and settings for hands free voice-activiated operation. All of the standard features plus backlit LCD display, water resistant, battery level meter, and battery/power saver. Can operate off of standard AA batteries, but comes with 8 rechargeable AA NiMH batteries and charging station.
