Thanks for the update. I broke it off into a new thread since this was getting far from phone numbers.
Yeah, I can believe it drains batteries since it only uses 3 standard AA cells. That may be fine for FRS power, but not if you expect it to get GMRS range.
As for readability I wonder if it has a marginal vocoder or if it struggles with multipath.
Very interesting concept, but I'm leery that there's only one company. And they're not an established upper tier communication company.
What I like about it:
- No license
- No complex licensing test
- Usable range
- Secure communication
The last one is where Amateur Radio struggles. There's some messages you just can't send via Amateur Radio because anyone could be listening.
