We are a relatively small company with a huge communication problem. We have tried several portable 2 way radios which have not held up. We do landscape construction, lawn care and some irrigation head work. We have to be able to communicate with one another. Most radios are either too bulky or cannot be heard when trying to communicate to a guy on a mower or on the other end of the property. Many do not have an adaquate battery life, dislike water and abuse, or are way too expensive for a small crew of 6 to 8 guys. What is your company using? Screaming isn't working!

How far do you need to communicate? Can you use a small cb radio walkie?

Or maybe a set of Motorola MH230R 23-Mile Range radios?
