    We only use one channel which makes it easy to get a hold of anyone at any time. The work fine in our office. Easier than yelling for someone.

    Small but powerful and clear. Fits great in your pocket. Distance could be a further but they cover our 3 acre car lot.

    Everybody loves these. We had gone so long without anything and I convinced my boss we needed some walky talky's. No more running around looking people, you just and get your answer right away. Highly recommend.
