TALKABOUT – Manufacturer’s product description:

The Talkabout™ MS350R is by no means a fair weather radio. On the contrary, it is a high performance, ultra durable waterproof radio that’s right for the extreme outdoors. Packed with every possible radio feature, it’s hard to believe such value at such competitive pricing. With a range of up to 35 miles and freedom to communicate wirelessly, the MS350R won’t slow you down. The range in real-life conditions can be reduced from maximum range.

How far can I expect my radios to communicate?
The communication range quoted is calculated based on an unobstructed line of sight test under optimum conditions. Actual range will vary depending on terrain and conditions, and is often less than the maximum possible. Your actual range will be limited by several factors including, but not limited to: terrain, weather conditions, electromagnetic interference, and obstructions.

Waterproof** – Survives Water Dunk and Heavy Downpours
Fishing, kayaking, swimming or simply heading for a great day of fun with family or friends near the water? How about skiing down your favorite ski slope or hunting during that unexpected heavy down pour? The Motorola MS350 two-way waterproof radio is a must have to ensure you have a reliable means of communication under harsh weather conditions. Don’t worry about transmission failure when it makes contact with water. Its IP67 standard withstands constant submersion of up to 1m for 30 minutes and repels the heaviest of rain droplets.

Ir Floats** – Makes for Fast Recovery
If your MS350 radio happens to fall into the water, don’t despair. Through meticulous engineering, the radio floats and is visible on the water surface. Once recovered, use your MS350 radio to keep talking and listening.

Headset Connector** – Use with Your Favorite Motorola Audio Accessories
Hands-free devices provide you with many advantages, the main ones being discreet communication, sound enhancement in noisy environments and the ability to multitask. The MS350 waterproof radio is equipped with a headset jack connector ready for use with any of your favorite Motorola audio accessories.

Ergonomic Design – Functional Bleek
Designed to maximize operator’s productivity, its hourglass shape fits snugly into the palms of your hands, reducing fatigue and discomfort typically experienced with the competition’s brand. The non-slip ridges on its base housing eliminate annoying hand slips. Although built for function, the MS350R radio boasts a sleek contemporary look that holds its own with any trendsetter.

Repeater Function*** – Improves Your Coverage Beyond the Horizon
Maximize your camping, sporting or hunting experience by improving your radio transmission coverage* when talking to family or group members who sometimes wander far beyond the line of sight. Thanks to the built-in repeater channels, the MS350R works well with a local repeater station to carry your signal further. Take advantage of this value-added feature by switching to GMRS channels 15R-22R, but don’t forget you’ll need a GMRS license and an accessible repeater station to take advantage of this unique feature.
