Cobra 975 Radio and headset
on 4 August 2009
This is a nice little radio and fits into a jacket pocket. I bought a set for a bike trip through Europe and they worked without a hitch. with so many frequencies and private settings you'll never run out of channels to talk on. Also the beauty of these radios is that they can monitor two channels at once. They have a whole raft of features which to be honest you probably don't need, or are likely to use, but if like me you're a gadget freak you'll love the extra stuff it can do.
It has a vox setting but personally I prefer the use of a push to talk switch when riding as I find wind noise can set it off.
The battery life is very good, lasting over 20 hours of fair usage over three days before needing a charge.
The only minor down side is that you get only one base station and one charger for both radios. I also thought I had read some where that they are water resistant but it does not say that in the intsructions when they turned up but sitting in my tank bag or jacket pocket was all the water proofing they required.
Would I buy again... To be honest I'd probably go for the next model down and save a few quid, but I'm not disappinted with it and the gadget freak in me is happy as larry
