Binatone Action 1000 Two-Way Radio by Binatone
5.0 out of 5 stars Over 1km water, 30 April 2014
My situation was I needed workers to be able to communicate from the seashore to a work boat roughly 1km clear sight out at sea. There is (at time of writing!) no mobile phone signal in the area so an alternative was required.

Plus points with these radios.

> The battery life seems very good, although I've yet to use them particularly intensively so haven't had any problems. Note you could buy spares easily.
> Price low, no licence or training needed.
> Voices were clear in the aforementioned conditions.

They work for me.

I wouldn't have minded if this was over a longer period of time, but the quickness with which they have fallen apart is a bad sign. I've got some old pairs of Etnies over a year old that I've worn much more, yet are in better condition that these are already!

Having learnt everything from work experience and not having been on a course for accounting the basics of Sage/ accounting practice were very alien to me. When it came to the year end there were a lot of errors that needed to be fixed by my accountant and it was all very depressing… Read more
