Motorola Two Way Radios Are Perfect for Communicating on Vacation

If you love the outdoors and love to take camping  and boating trips with your family, you know that there are going to be spots that do not have cellular service, yet you still want to be connected.  Motorola has great solutions to keep you connected and are affordable too, including these T100 Two Way radios!

I attend a lot of outdoor events that span large areas, like auto races and outdoor flea markets.   A lot of these events are in remote areas that do not have cellular service, so these portable handheld radios are perfect for me to communicate with others I am with.  They are also lightweight and small, so they don't take up any room.  With their attachable belt clips, they are easy to keep on myself without being in the way.  They are also a perfect size for little hands as well, so are perfect and durable enough for kids too.

If you keep an emergency kit in your car or if you take one with you when traveling, these two way radios would be an absolute must addition to that kit.

This set is also available in pink AND is also available in a 3-pack.  See below to purchase.

Simple, compact and easy for the entire family to use, the T100 is the perfect way to stay in touch when out and about, whether you're at the playground, hiking in the park or enjoying a picnic.

This colorful two-way radio has a range of up to 16 miles and features 22 channels, providing you with just what you need to instantly reach your family and friends and know they’re safe.

  1. These are pretty neat. I could see using them when camping or even at kids' ball games to keep track of kids. They would definitely be handy in an emergency if phone lines went down.

  2. We used to have some of these when my boys were little to use on the farm. This looks like a nicer set than what we had. I'll need some for my granddaughters in a couple of years.

  3. I can see how these could be really handy. Be great to have if you like to camp!
