Need a radio for outdoor activity, specifically motorcycle road racing. Terrain can be slightly hilly with ranges up to 2 miles. Basically need the radio to communicate between primary rider and pit/spotter and possibly another rider (2nd bike).
I see that lots of other riders/teams use the Kenwood TK-3131 (gmrs/frs premium radio) that costs about $170 a piece.
I was looking at purchasing a set of motorola CP100 (15 channel VHF -2w) or motorola VX2100 (1ch VHF - 2w), used on ebay for half the price of the tk3131. Lots of MURS on ebay but no TK-3131…
I can see the tk3131 having an advntage of being compatible with most comsumer radios (gmrs/frs), but what about the motorola’s I just menioned? Will they suit my purpose? Do the these motorola radios have better clarity and or range? What about channel availibility?
I’m doing 2hr endurance races and need good unintterupted communication. Please let me know asap… auction is over in an hour for one set that is reasonable!
