Where can I use PMR radio?
Keep in touch in the garden or at a campsite with these Cobra AM245 two-way radios. These PMR 446 radios use the 446MHz frequency band for communication between the two units, so they're also capable of communicating with all other PMR 446 radios in range. There's no need for call plans or licences with these walkie-talkies, making them the ideal alternative to mobile phones for wireless communication. You can secure these compact PMRs with the belt clip situated on the back of each radio.

Will these radios be effective in closed conditions?
These two-way radios reach their maximum 5km range in open conditions. However, they are also effective even if there are obstacles, such as doors and walls, between the transmission ranges. Roger beeps can be used to give confirmation to the person on the other end that it's clear to talk. The Cobra AM245 can be connected with a range of headsets and earpieces for more covert communications or to cut down on background noise.

How do I charge my radios?
Re-charge your Cobra PMR radios with the included Micro-USB cable. The radios come with a Y cable so both units can be charged from one socket at the same time. If you are at a festival with no access to mains power, just replace the re-chargeable batteries with alkaline AAA batteries (not included). The power saver circuitry feature extends battery life when you are not transmitting or receiving. The battery level indication on the PMR's display screen will show you when you need to re-charge or change the batteries, so you will never get caught without power. The AM245 can last up to two hours of continuous talk-time on a full charge and up to 24 hours on standby.
