Motorola Talkabout MR355R is the ultimate communication tool for the serious outdoor enthusiast. Loaded with every possible radio feature, you know that you are ready for the extreme outdoors. Lightweight and rugged, with extra large buttons to help you operate even with gloves on. The MR355R also includes an emergency alert feature, allowing you to enjoy your escape to the great outdoors with confidence that others can be informed of any dangers that may come your way. When the alert button is activated, the radio transmits an alert siren followed by transmission of spoken or incidental sounds. This allows you to send the signal to other radios and warn of impending danger. The MR355R also features a built-in LED flashlight for peace-of-mind during evening adventures or unexpected emergencies and power outages. And thanks to the built-in repeater channels, the MR355 works well with a local repeater station to carry your signal further. Take advantage of this value-added feature by switching to GMRS channels 15R-22R, but don’t forget you’ll need a ***GMRS license and an accessible repeater station to take advantage of this unique feature. You can even add stealth and fun to your outdoor adventure by masking your radio’s normal ring tone under the guise of a quacking duck, a cackling goose, a gobbling turkey, a bugling elk or a howling coyote. You will find this a helpful way to blend into the untamed habitat of the wild. Or if that doesn’t work for you the VibraCall silent vibrating ringer is especially useful for locations where ringing can be intrusive. This feature is also great when noise from a sporting event would drown out your ring tone.
