Two-Way Radio is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Great Features I purchased these to go along with my resently installed MXT 275. Unfortunately by the time they arrived the forest and trails were closed due to the virus so I have not been able to put them through their paces. I do wish you would offer all accessories at time of sale so one can include them in the free shipping. After reading the manual I saw the LXADP DUAL PIN Charger witch is great for traveling but shipping was more than the charger so I passed. Also if you made the dual pin charger in 12 volt or USB would be great for space saving for us with little room like in my 2006 Jeep TJ.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great distance had the radios about a year now. they work very well. only problem is you need extra batteries for a long day out. the rechargeable batteries that come with it will only last 4 hours or so. we use them at the campground for when the kids go out to run around. we've had them work in the neighborhood for 2 miles. and have never been out of range on vacation or in the campgrounds. they work best when cell phone signal is limited as a backup to get a hold of each other.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Hunting Radios I've Ever Owned I bought a set of these radios 3 or 4 years ago. My hunting partner and I were so impressed with their range and clarity that he purchased another set and now we outfit our entire hunting party. They have been extremely effective in the mountains of Vermont and have saved us numerous trips when something caused us to need to contact other hunting party members.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Above average radios I haven't had a chance to use these extensively yet but very pleased so far. The FRS/GRMS flexibility id great and allows use of full power up to allowed limits. These have all of the features I need plus extras. I also ordered a base radio so we could keep track of our grandkids while camping.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what is needed I purchased the GXT Pro series for hunting in deep woods and brush in Pennsylvania. Was very skeptical at first but now, a believer of this product. Works great for what we needed no problem (loud and clear) in the most thick terrain at 600 yards. Like so much buying another set for hunting and 4 more for our construction company.

If Im unable to leave my GXT1050VP4 radios in the base charger for the hole 12 hrs. Will this damage the battery? Thanks Joe.

Asked by: Joe M
No, this will not damage the battery. However, please insure that you charge the batteries at least 24 hours for the initial charge. After that you can take the batteries off of the charger before the 12 hours if need be. In addition, do not leave your radios on the charger for more than 12 hours. Doing so over time will damage the batteries.

I have a set of GXT1050VP4 TWO-WAY RADIOS.  I see that in order to use the GMRS channels that a license is required.  Are there any channels on the GXT1050VP4 that do not require a license?   Are channels 23-50 the channels that dont require the license?

Asked by: CletusTJudd
Hello, because the GXT1050 is a GMRS radio it requires a license to operate no matter which channel you are transmitting on. A GMRS license is $70 and covers you and your extended family for 10 years. Simply apply on the FCC website and you usually have your license within 48 hours.
