Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

2-Way Radios?

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I'm thinking of buying 4 2-way radios for the family to use skiing/walking/cycling etc but I don't know which to go for. I understand that the Motorola ones are supposed to be the best, but they are a bit pricey. Does anyone have any experience or opinions on any other radios on the market (binatone, bt, oregon etc)

I bought a pair of the BT Freeway Pro's in Feb for £55 inc double charger & earpieces. Used them for a week in La Rosiere. They were excellent although I've never tried any other makes/models.

I have a pair of Motorolas and a pair of Binatones. Performance is indistinguishable, so far. Both are useful in the mountains, but they have obvious limitations.

I bought a pair of BT Freeway's on Ebay for £17.50 (including post and packing) from a supplier (ex-demo). I believe that he still does them from time to time.
They did not come with a charger or earpeaces etc but run on normall AAA batteries (four per handset).
We have used them a few times skiing and on other occasions and work well.
For example I had a conversation with my wife when I was on the top of Holn Slave and she was a the bottom of the main gondola at Soll, Austria.

Thanks for the warm (or should that be cold Very Happy !) welcome
Forgot to say that all these radios SHOULD work on the same frequences. Therefore you can mix and match between manufacturers (and I have between the BT and Motorola ones on a few occasions).

This is true if you are mixing US radios with US radios or European radios with Europeans radios - but does not apply if mixing US radios with European radios as different frequencies are available for public use in the different areas. So be careful if you are tempted to get them cheap over the internet.

US personal radios are illegal in Europe they interfere with emergency frequencies.
