"Binatone MR600 Twin Review"

These radios can be used for work, sport, play and sercurity. They have a farely good range of up to 3km, but this can drop if there are buildings in the way or the weather is bad. The features, ringtones and VOX technology are good, and they come with a free battery re-charger and hands free kits. I mainly use these for play and i've noticed that not only can you buy more twin packs, you can also buy different radios that will work together, which boosts the amount of available ringtones. You can lock the keypad, adjust the volume and change lots of settings. The hands free kits plug straight in and all you have to do is turn on VOX, which will activate the PTP (press to talk) button as soon as it detects noise. You can change how loud this noise has to be to work. It also features a stopwatch, though not a clock, which can be annoying. And you can scan to see who is on other channels. Turning on or off, or changing these settings is easy. Overall these radios are brilliant! These radios vary between £25 and £40.
