TalkAbout 270 - 280 radios?

Question:
Have there been any updates on the FRS Radios?
I like your review of the Cherokee 460 but I am wondering about the new Motorola 270 and 280 with VOX. Does the tester that loved the Cherokee 460 still like it?

Answer:
We have not received the newest Talkabout radios 270 and 280 series. The tester that liked the Cherokee liked the radio's small size and lighted buttons.

From what I have seen of the 270 and 280 series, I think that Motorola has made some good changes, such as chainging the volume control from a dial to a button. The addition of the Nickel Metal Hydride models that allow you to recharge the unit is also a plus.

When we receive the units for testing we will update the review to include them.
