Features Emergency Alert, NOAA Weather Broadcasts and Flexible Charging Options
The TALKABOUT MR350R two-way radios from Motorola offer reliable features and two-way communications at up to 35 miles1 in a rugged and easy to use multi-purpose communication device.
Reliable Features Provide Peace-of-Mind for Every Outing
The MR350R two-way radios keep the anyone in contact while helping prepare for unforeseen situations away from home or on the road in the RV. The emergency alert feature allows you to escape to the great outdoors with confidence that others can be informed of any dangers that may come along. When the alert button is activated, the radio transmits an alert siren followed by transmission of spoken or incidental sounds, allowing the signal to be sent to other radios and warn of impending danger. The MR350R also features a built-in LED flashlight for peace-of-mind during evening adventures outdoors or unexpected emergencies and power outages at home.
Whether in the back yard or the backwoods campsite, the MR350R can alert the family to severe weather from one of seven National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and four Environment Canada (EC) weather channels.2 The continuous broadcasts of local and regional weather updates let you prepare for any weather while fishing at the lake or during summer storms at home. When skiing or engaged in other winter sports, the extra large buttons make radio operation easy even with gloves on.
Convenient and Reliable Two-Way Communications On-the-Go
Reach far-flung family members on the soccer fields or in a national park with Motorola’s Push-to-Talk Power Boost (PTT). When activated this feature extends the transmission range by increasing the transmitter power output while saving battery life when no power boost is necessary. With 22 channels, each with 121 privacy codes, he also has 2,662 combinations of communication to choose from. Plus, the Motorola exclusive QT (Quiet Talk) function eliminates interference from other manufacturers, which provides more clear channels.
Communication is made even simpler with the iVOX hands-free feature. Much like using a speakerphone, you need not stop what you’re doing to talk. Also, the VibraCall silent vibrating ringer is useful for locations where ringing would be intrusive, like out on the golf course.
Four different charging methods make staying connected a breeze. A desktop charger is provided for use at home or use a mini-USB car cable on your road trip to the trailhead. Use a PC when no power outlet is available. Of course, 3 double-A batteries work just fine for a quick recharge when no electrical power is available.
