These work great. My mother-in-law lives next door and is on oxygen. We use these as a back up for when the electric goes off she can let us know when she needs help!! They've never failed us!!

Excellent seller and product.

Great little radios. With the whip antenna it pushes a full mile through dense pines and rolling hills. We have them for emergencies or just if we need help while hunting. You will not get it's full potential until you get the whip antenna, but the little rubber duck antenna it comes with might do just fine for your purposes. I'm going to order the same one again from the same seller.

Great Radio with Excellent Customer Service

The Retevis Two Way, VHF/UHF Radios purchased from Alwaysonline are excellent. One of the RT5's was defective and Alwaysonline was all over replacing both radios and expressed shipped the replacements, maintaining daily communications with me regarding both trouble shooting the problems with the original set and in shipping the new ones to me. Alwaysonline provided the best customer service experience I have received for some time. The radios themselves are being used on cycling trips and boat to draw-bridge communications as well as crew to crew intercommunication in a marine environment. The radios can be user programmed to imitate Marine VHF radios and corresponding channels, avoiding the need for an FCC license. The earpieces allow hands free communications, allowing captain and crew to communicate and perform navigation and docking activities in a noisy, time sensitive environment. In the cycling application, it allows cyclists to maintain constant contact throughout the trip. Great little wearable radio with many valuable features that are user programmable.

Great radio, but diffrent versions of firmware cause problems

Purchased 4 of these radios for a move cross-country. They work great and have many features that the more expensive radios have. I used the CHIRP software to program all of the radios for the same settings. CHIRP was a little confusing to use at first, but there are great videos online that can help. The only problem that i have with them is that one of the radios has a different firmware on it than the others, and i haven't found a way to update the firmware. This issue caused the software to have issues when trying to copy the settings over from the other three radios. I had to build a whole new template in CHIRP for the single radio. I would recommend that if you plan on buying more than one of these radios, then buy them all together so that the firmware version might be the same. I purchased them separately.

Fantastic sound quality and great battery life.

Excellent value for the money. Sound quality is crisp and clear unlike the muffled voices on most radios. Use these and truck mounted radios to communicate with other tow trucks in the general area or down the highway. excellent for communication when searching a large mall parking lot for a vehicle or canvassasing the streets for a car that a customer didnt give you a good location for. Will go pretty far in open areas but is limited to less than a mile in heavily urban areas especially around lots of other signal interferance. Its great to be able to talk on a radio instead of dangerously messing with a distracting phone while driving. Programming is quick and simple and shipping was fast. Both charging docks worked fine I'd recommend also purchasing a 12v car charger just in case your out camping or anything that takes over a day but so far havent had any issues with low batteries even with heavy use all day. Just make sure that you are operating on legal channels and not interfering with any emergency frequencies in your area.

These things are great. Had an issue with the battery contacts on one after Amazon's 30-day return period, but Retevis customer service sorted everything out very quickly and we're back in action.

Nice radio

Really nice radio. Able to hit the local repeater from 8 miles away. Easy to program and set the repeater shift and tone. Battery lasts for days.

five stars

Worked like a charm once we trained the personnel using them how they worked.

Very good walkie talkies but very poorly designed and cheaply made charging cradle.

Bought these walkie talkies for our RV caravan from Arizona to Yellowstone National Park. These are great walkie talkies with great range. On the high transmission power setting (7-8 watts), we had about 2 to 3 miles of clear communication range in a mountainous environment. Much better than Motorola walkie talkies which advertise 36 mile range at 3 watts. Reality is even with 7 watts of power you're lucky to get 5 to 6 miles of range. Motorola should be shut down with those ridiculous range claims! The Retevis RT5 is a well-built walkie-talkie with many features, that feels and operates like a much more expensive walkie-talkie. My disappointments are: 1) the charging cradle is very poorly designed and not durable. It's very hard to get the walkie-talkie to sit in the cradle correctly so that it charges. I bought two of these walkie talkies and one of the cradles is already not working. A redesign is badly needed for the charging cradle. 2) The power cord supplied with the charging cradle does not fit the AC inlit on the battery itself. Why in the world would you design it like this? Why in the world wouldn't you design it so that the AC plug can be plugged directly into the walkie-talkie so that those of us with 110 outlets in our vehicles can plug it straight in to maintain power while on the move? Despite the charging cradle and inability to plug the walkie-talkie directly into a car's 110 power source, these are great walkie talkies for the price and I highly recommend them


I purchased this set of Retevis RT5 (8 watt) radios, with the included programming cable, to replace my "blister pack" GMRS radios. WOW! What a BIG difference! These radios are INCREDIBLE! I had the opportunity to test them today...out to 6 miles in town/country mix...REAL WORLD NO KIDDING 6 MILES! That's successfully transmitting and receiving. I currently hold an�?FCC GMRS license (and will test for my ham license soon) so I was only able to test the GMRS and MURS capability thus far. But I will be able to test the 2 meter band capabilities of these radios�?soon. I was able to receive and transmit much better than the blister pack radios though. I was using the Retevis RHD-771 aftermarket antennas on both radios at the time of my test and not the included "rubber duckie" antennas. They worked FLAWLESSLY! I used the Retevis RT5 software (instead of CHIRP) from the Retevis.com website to program the radios (using the included USB cable) because it seemed�?more compatible with the RT5 radio when assigning power levels. And what's even BETTER than these radios was the customer service that ANGELA provided (she went ABOVE AND BEYOND in ways that other companies can't EVEN come close to). I am going to use these radios primarily for outdoor recreation (i.e. camping, fishing, etc.) but also for every other event that life pops up in front of me. These would be GREAT for family reunions, farm communication (between combine, tractor, etc...been there done that!..) you name it. For the price, these radios are UNBEATABLE! I am VERY happy with these RT5's and JUST as happy with the INCREDIBLE customer service provided by Angela and Retevis!
