Uniden GMR1635-2 Review

Uniden GMR1635-2

We’ve all seen the commercial, “Can You Hear Me Now? Can You Hear Me Now?”

This catchphrase has become commonplace in our society because we have all felt the enormous frustration of not being able to hear or be heard by someone we desperately need to communicate within the moment.

Poor or limited reception makes us want to give up on the product entirely and find something that will meet our needs. In fact, poor reception has consistently been one of the major complaints with any wireless form of communication. Whether it be a cell phone or a walkie-talkie, we all want reception and coverage we can rely on and trust, especially when we need it the most.

For the Uniden 16-Mile 22 Channel Battery FRS/GMRS Two-Way Radio clarity of sound is key. These devices, which have rave reviews regarding lack of static and pristine sound quality, are a customer favorite because they are strategically designed to prevent interference. From children rough-housing in the front yard to men hunting in the woods, all users benefit from the crisp, clear sound that few products can consistently achieve.

In addition, they come with a user guide, a belt clip, and included batteries that make these devices ready to use straight out of the package.
