Motorola EM1000R 20-Mile 2-Way FRS/GMRS Radio, Pair

April 4th, 2009 by Dustin

So I’ve recently been called in my ward as the emergency preparedness specialist. In our neighborhood we a divided up into blocks with block captains. In the event of an emergency, each block captain will have a set of 2 way radios for communication. I’m not a block captain, but thought it might would be a good idea to have some 2 way radios on hand for emergency anyway. Plus, they can come in handy for camping trips (and maybe even shopping trips, hehe)

Knowing nothing about them, other than hearing someone who uses them frequently and owning several of them say "only get Motorola" I went off to Amazon. I decided on the EM1000R model. It was the second highest seller in the category (first highest Motorola) and the only ones with a 5 star review (granted there are only 5 reviews so far).

What I like about them is that they have a charger stand and can use rechargeable NIMH batteries, or 3 AAA Alkaline batteries. So I can keep them charged all the time and store some AAA batteries for emergencies. I’m ordering today. If I don’t post an update free free to drop me a line once I get them if you want to know more as I learn more.

    If one would need 20 mile radios for a shopping trip… I see some marital problems :)

    But then again, sometimes distance is the best thing.

    I wonder if radio sales went down since everyone now has a cell phone.

    I’d suspect that despite how they’re described, those radios won’t work 20 miles or anywhere near that distance.

    Misleading advertising on this type of equipment is totally out of hand.

    These sophisticated lawn mowers are comparatively significantly more rapidly than the manual lawn mowers and also the quantity of effort to be place in can also be tremendously lowered. Rather, it is possible to throw the mulch directly onto your garden beds or leave it where it lies. Fortunately for the manual mower organization, one particular complete segment in the population isn’t enamored of power tools or worried about seeking wimpy: girls.

    Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have
    any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and
    I ended up losing months of hard work due to no backup.
    Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?
