When you purchase the Midland GXT1000VP4 radio set, you get a pair of two way radios with belt clip, charger, rechargable battery packs, AC and DC adapter, headset and an owner’s manual.

This model of Midland two way radios has been available for sale for a few years now and available to purchase at a number of places online including Amazon.

This is a FCC compliant set of radios that fits the person who plans on using all of the features available. These are "feature heavy" radios that are perfect for just about any adventure.

The range is up to 36 miles, about 58 kilometers. When I say 36 miles I mean that is what Midland advertises as the maximum range under optimal conditions. Optimal meaning no line of site obstruction, or at least very little. Think open water or rural flat areas or valley to mountain top. This also assumes you are using fully charged batteries with your radio set to use hi power on a GMRS channel (General Mobile Radio Service) as FRS channels (Family Radio Service) are restricted by the FCC to use low power.

Regarding the power charge capability of these radios. Some people have reported the power charge capability of these radios is less than ideal. On the other hands, others have reported no issues. Realize that this is something that all batteries might have an issue when. My suggestion is to assume the worse and plan on having a second set of batteries readily available just in case. That way you are pleasantly surprised if the battery life is as long as suggested or you are not shocked when the batteries run out in a relatively short amount of time.

Moving along, the product features associated with these are: meets the JIS4 standard for water exposure. 22 standard GMRS channels plus 28 more channels. There is a weather scan which most two way radios these days feature plus an All Hazards Alert, a whisper feature that allows you to talk quietly but still be heard. A group call feature so you can talk to just one person without everyone else on the same channel being alerted. Privacy codes, 50 channel scanning capability, high, medium, and low power settings, call alerts, key pad lock ... the list goes on and on.

If you are looking for a versatile setup of two way radios that have a wide range of features, then the Midland GXT1000VP4 is yours.
