Bros,

Need your advice.

I've been searching the forum on walkie talkie comparison between Motorola vs Midland, and can't decide the two. Basically, I need a small walkie talkie when travel overseas with my family member (yes to save on roaming charges), small enough to fit into pockets or handbag. And have narrow to these models:

Entry level
------------
Midland LXT110 (12miles),
Midland LXT110VP (12miles),
Midland LXT460Vp (24 miles)
Motorola FV300 (10miles)

Mid-range
----------
Midland GXT720 (30Miles)
Motorola T9680 (28miles)

Which would you pick? or any other recommended brands/ models?

For those entry level WT, would you think I can get signal from say 20th floor to the car park basement? because I can't get hand phone signal at the basement, so a walkie talkie would be helpful.

Is Feedback Comm Pte Ltd the only shop that carries Midland brands?

You use privacy code? is the sound quality clearer?

Which frequency is better? GRMS or FRS?

Don't waste time and money on those colourful motorola walkie. 28 miles is BS, I can't even talk to the next car on the NSHW when I cannot see them.

i duno if ur T series is the type for recreational use

if yes please dont presume longer distance is better

i happen to use both 10miles and 28miles b4 and the 28 miles sucks like hell, poor voice quality,sound damn muffled

during my survey time which is 2-3 yrs back manage to find the 17 miles is the clearest with the best distance.

something for u to note

another thing is take the distance with a pinch of salt, the talkie dpends on ur enviroment to work

terminal 1 to terminal 2 cant communicate but sheares bridge to lau pa sat still can communicate.


my 2cents !

Ideally, those Motorola GP HF/VHF series are better walkie, but they are a little buky for travel.

Which model would you recommend?

Depending on ur needs and operating environment.

Few factors to consider:

1. Distance
2. Batt Life
3. Environment / Terrain

I do not recommend HF and do not think that we can get HF as it is military controlled. Unless you have your means.

Probably most of the walkies in the market are VHF and commonly UHF 2.4 Ghz just like your internet wireless modem.

HF can la, join HAM radios
VHF is 100+ Mhz, UHF is 300+, usually range is 400+
like e motorola T-series, 465Mhz, btw, all these "toys" can throw in dustbin useless in NSHW
good enough for shopping centre

You mean the Motoroal T-series can't pickup the signal when the cars are travelling at high speed on NSHW, even it is a open space?

I was hunting for walkie a couple of weeks back....was impressed with those long distance quoted...but according to the shop...as one forumer pointed out...its the wattage that you should be looking at. Most of the Talkabout model from Motorola can't do the distance...a more sensible distance is around 10-15 miles only.

If you want a longer range...then have to get those that transmit in UHF frequency....cost about 300+ a piece. Confirm beyond visual range.
I got no signature ??

What he meant that if you are unable to see the opposite car (behind or infront of you) on NSHW, you can hardly converse or communicate. Those 10 miles or 27 miles thingy are kind of BS though. I am using FV300 but still happy with it but dont expect these walkie talkie can comminicate like those police radio.

i've been using these types of walkie talkie since 2004

maybe i can share u my experience

yup those so call long distance are just bull unless the power output is around 4watts.
this usually the export set which uses 462 and 467 mhz frequency. it is illegal to be use in other countries except for US.

the legal ones that can be use in this country is 446mhz frequency but this only have 0.5watts power output. this can be use in europe.

in malaysia the legal frequency is 477mhz that is the same as new zealand and australia. i must admit it is hard to get 477mhz walkie talkie.

in my opinion if want to get walkie talkie, get the approve 446mhz, 8 channel instead of 5 and comes with CTCSS or sub code or privacy channel they call it. get a set that comes with earpiece. this is to conceal it when we use in malaysia shopping center or places like genting island. getting this approve types we can use it in singapore such as the beach, shopping center or event like wedding.

if die die want to get those powerful 4watts walkie talkie yet illegal but can self programme the frequency, seach for puxing in ebay and it will throw out walkies such as px777 or px888. i'm using this walkies for my drive up to the north but each set not pair cost me about $110 and i program it to the legal frequency of 477mhz.

how good are this puxing walkies, test range in singapore, between tiong bahru plaza can reach queenstown area.

Since 477 mhz is the only approved frequency in Malaysia, would that be cross-talk with other walkie talkie whom are also on the same frequency?

BTW, does PX777 comes with privacy channel? to prevent cross talk with other walkie talkies?

the approve frequencty is 477.0mhz to 477.1mhz. in between the frequency you can have about 8 different chaneels from those preprogramme walkies. if using puxing or like wise types, you can program it from 477.000mhz to 477.999mhz. as usually the programming will be in steps of 5/6.25/10/12.5/25hz.

yup the puxing will comes with 50 privacy channels or ctcss and can store 128 channels

1. BTW, which Puxing you are using? PX777 or PX888? and what is PMR walkie?

2. For programing the walkie, you need to connect it to the PC? or can be done standalone on the walkie itself? because I read from other forum that some ppl link it up to their PC.

3. But does Puxing carry shorter antenna for travel purpose especially in shopping malls and hide it inside the pocket . Read it from one of the forum that their antenna connector is proprietary, ie. body (male), antenna (female) . Is that true? or can I easily get the antenna replacement from Sim Lim?

wow i never know there's legality to the usage of walkie talkies and its frequency...what would be the penalty should one be caught with illegal walkie talkie?

who willl be catching btw?

also, what's the rationale of imposing restriction on the usage of walkie talkie?

and say you buy one that's legal in spore..but shd you bring over to malaysia, would it become illegal?
