I spend so much of my life outdoors and away from cell phone service that I need to trust my 2 way radios. Motorola Solutions makes sure that I can stay in touch even when I am out of touch! The new T465 Weatherproof Talkabout Two Way Radios fit my lifestyle, and may save my life.

The T465’s are waterproof, impervious to rain, snow and other weather conditions. There are 22 channels, using privacy codes, there are over 1662 combinations of channel configurations. The NOAA channel keeps you updated with real time weather conditions, although this service may not be available in all areas. The included batteries are rechargeable, although you can substitute AA batteries if you are in an are that you can not recharge in. You also have the ability to communicate hands free and use the Vibracall for situations that demand quiet, such as when you are hunting. You can also customize your ringtones with 20 different call tones, including animal calls. The T465 has all these features and a LED flashlight!

You get a pair of radios in an outdoor green color, 2 NiMH rechargeable batteries, 2 Micro-USB wall charging cables,2 belt clips, 2 earbuds with PTT microphone all in a nice black carrying case. These radios will also communicate with other Motorola Solutions 2 way radios, and possibly other, but I only have Motorola Solutions radios.

I love stream fishing, but it is not a good idea to be wading in cold, sometimes deep water by yourself. Sometimes, tho, I want to have some me time, and take off by myself for a relaxing day all by myself. Those days I make sure to take the

T465 radio with me, with the other left with my husband for safety’s sake. While salmon fishing, we had 15 family and friends going in every direction possible. Using my 2 way radios, we could stay in contact, and react quickly in event of someone falling in or needing help landing a fish. Many times the radios were used for more fun reasons; “Hey you should see the salmon I just caught”, “Did you see those deer”, What time is dinner”. It was nice being able to respond from even a mile and a half apart. Several times my presence on my quad was requested, either to transport fish or people back to camp, and their “taxi” was only a radio call away.

Being as we were remote camping, I was able to charge my radios with a solar panel most times, but I did switch to AA batteries toward the end of the trip. This made using the radios very convenient to use. With a range of up to 35 miles, you can stay in touch most everywhere!

The MSRP of the T465 Weatherproof Talkabout Two Way Radios are $104.99 and there is purchasing information at http://www.motorolasolutions.com/en_us/products/two-way-radios/consumer-two-way-radios/talkabout–t465.html.
