Motorola debuts new Talkabout hunting radio

updated 12:35 pm EST, Fri February 1, 2008

Motorola T9650R Camo

Motorola has introduced a new two-way radio, the T9650R Camo. The device is specifically meant for hunting, and as such uses Realtree's APG camouflage pattern. Additionally, beyond five standard ringtones, five more simulate calls for elk, ducks, geese, turkeys and coyotes. While stalking, a radio can be set to vibrate instead. To track weather, users have the option of seven NOAA weather channels, plus four belonging to Environment Canada.

It has a range of up to 28 miles, and sports 22 channels with 121 privacy codes. The maximum battery life is 27 hours with an alkaline battery or nine hours with NiMH; this may be affected however by use of the backlit display, and the PTT power-boost feature, which is needed to reach full operating range. The Camo should be available soon at a price of $119 per pair, each set coming bundled with two earpieces and a car charger.
