Rated 5 out of 5 by RUGBUG GREAT PRODUCT I was shocked by the power & how clear these radios are. Perfect for open country & water ... I can't wait to try in an area with structure blocking the signal. I think they will still do well ... December 18, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by FrankCarrier Over Rated this product claims to work for up to 27 or so miles. my experience shows them to only work for under a mile. very disapointed in these midland walkies. i need them for my work and they just werent worth the money that i paid for them. October 11, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by Anderson26101 Good two-way radio I used these radios when I went on vacation to the beach, I was impressed with the range of the radio. You can change the channels so that you dont pick up anyone elses radio traffic that may be on the same frequency. Overall Im pleased with the purchase. September 14, 2010

A:No Motorola has the requirment on some of there radios for the FCC license, but midland is a civilian usage only radio. Therefore doesnt require a license. Hope this helped.
Details:Do these really work or is it more of the same old same old non-functioning, short-lived radio?
A:Midland radios are amazing radios. I've had multiple ones of all kinds and none of them have ever given out on me. I would recommend the LTX490 as the best one. I currently use it for MilitarySimulation and Hunting and I go through some pretty tough Op's. So to me there not bad at all.
