Father’s Day Gift Guide: Motorola Talkabout MJ270R Two-Way Radios

If your family has plans this summer to go camping, fishing or even to a theme park, two-way radios are extremely valuable to have on hand. They operate in remote areas where your cell phone often doesn’t, and a high-quality set like Motorola’s Talkabout MJ270R Two-Way Radios has important features that you may not find on your cell phone, such as a flashlight, an emergency alert button, and flexible charging options.

Our family was given the opportunity to review Motorola Talkabout MJ270R Two-Radios, and we were extremely impressed with all of the features, such as:

* Emergency alert feature, which allows a signal to be sent to other radios to warn of impending danger

* Built-in LED flashlight in case of darkness, unexpected emergencies or power outages

* Continuous broadcasts of local and regional weather updates from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Environment Canada (EC)

* Exclusive Quiet Talk (QT) function, which eliminates interference from other manufacturers

* Delivers a range of up to 27 miles

* 22 channels, each with 12 privacy codes, with 2,662 combinations of communication to choose from

* Speech-activated, hands-free communication

* Works with 3 AA batteries (for 27 hours of battery life) and rechargeable NiMH battery packs (for 9 hours of battery life), with an audible low-battery alert

* 4 charging methods

* Backlit display for reading in low light

In short, the Motorola Talkabout MJ270R Two-Way Radios are amazing! You can find them at Radio Shack, Best Buy, Target,, and many other places for a suggested retail price of $69.99 a pair. This includes two radios, two belt clips, a dual charger, a charging adapter, two NiMH rechargeable battery packs, and an emergency preparedness checklist sheet.

If you’re looking for an extremely useful and unique gift for Dad or Granddad for Father’s Day, he’ll love Motorola Talkabout MJ270R Two-Way Radios. My husband was thrilled with his, and I know we’ll be taking them on our next trip to the campground, theme park, or just about anyplace where we’ll be spending time outdoors. They’re simple enough for our kids to use, too, which gives us peace of mind. Visit to learn more about Motorola’s products.
