You may have noticed this new acronym popping up on some of our products. RoHS stands for Restrictions on Hazardous Substances, and it's a directive that could have a huge impact on the production and disposal of consumer electronics. First adopted in Europe in 2006 (and later adopted in California in 2007), RoHS restricts the use of six dangerous substances in lots of common electronics. According to the official RoHS compliance Web site (www.rohs.eu), the RoHS symbol indicates that "new electrical and electronic equipment put on the market does not contain any of the six banned substances: lead, mercury, cadmium, hexavalent chromium, poly-brominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE), in quantities exceeding maximum concentration values."
While some military and medical equipment is exempt from RoHS compliance, the electronics governed by the standard are among the most common you'll find in your home, from radios to MP3 players to cell phones and (increasingly) computers. In practical terms, the standard protects factory workers at the production level, sharply reducing their exposure to hazardous substances. The standard also has a profound impact on the disposal and recycling of electronics, in that disposed substances will no longer have at least six of the most hazardous chemicals formerly found in electronics, and recycled electronics will not expose workers to toxics as they harvest components.
These radios are great to use while camping, backing up your RV, installing TV antennas or other activities where you need to communicate with another person who is out of your sight. When all normal services are down during disasters and other emergencies, you can use them to stay in touch. Kids just might like to play with them too.
They are compatible on all 22 channels with the Midland Base Camp Radio, operating on both the GMRS and FRS radio frequencies. Operation on FRS frequencies requires no license (GMRS frequencies require FCC licensing). The maximum range of 18 miles can only be achieved over water or direct line of sight under optimum conditions. We were able to make reasonable contact under unreasonable conditions at three miles away behind a hill. We have never used any two-way radios that worked this well before.
They use 3 AAA batteries or you can use an optional charger and AAA rechargeable batteries (not included). Other features include channel scan, auto squelch, mic and headphone jacks, battery life extender, keystroke tones, keypad lock and call alert. The 118s are also water resistant.
Package contains two (2) handheld radios with belt clips and owner's manual.
Weight: 3.2 oz. Size: 2.1" W x 5.5" H x 1.5" D.
