Technical communication devices are getting more and more impressive.  Take the new Motorola Talkabout™ EM1000R two-way radios for instance.  These radios have a 20 mile range and are compact and lightweight so even your smaller family members can carry it with ease.

Practical Features for Every Family Adventure

With a range of up to 20 miles, the compact EM1000R two-way radios are ideal for family emergency kits with a variety of practical features to keep everyone prepared in any circumstance or setting from remote mountainside retreats and lakeside fishing trips to unexpected power outages at home. The radios are equipped with an Emergency Alert feature.  When the alert button is activated, the radio transmits an alert siren followed by transmission of any spoken or incidental sounds and allows users to send the signal to other radios and warn of impending danger. It also features a built-in LED Flashlight for unexpected weather emergencies and power outages and an emergency checklist.

And, Dad and Mom can always know what to pack, as well as stay on top of changing weather conditions by tuning in to one of seven National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Environment Canada (EC) weather channels, which provide continuous broadcasts of local and regional weather updates. 

Convenient Communication with Clear Connections

While trailblazing a new mountainside path or simply enjoying a relaxing day at the beach, you can enjoy the convenience of hands-free communication with the iVOX speech-activated feature, which allows you to communicate without having to remove the radio from the belt clip.  The EM1000R also features flexible charging options for ultimate mobility. You can choose to charge in the standard dual drop-in charger or use the mini-USB port in the radio to charge with a wall- or vehicle mini-USB charger (optional accessory), which is especially useful during long road trips. For remote camping trips, AA alkaline batteries are ideal for a quick recharge when no power is available.

With 22 channels, each with 121 privacy codes, you also have 2,662 combinations of communication to choose from.  The Motorola exclusive QT (Quiet Talk) function eliminates interference from other manufacturers.


The Motorola Talkabout EM1000R radios have a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $69.99 per pair ($59.99 for EM1000 alkaline only version).
