    I dont think that there is a difference. They are all selling the SX700R.

    Maybe R stands for rechargable battery kit and charger.

    while the w/o R means the set uses AA batteries?

    Thanks.
    T5500 I have is 12km in range while TP380 is 5km. When I was using it in Pyramid Shopping Mall in Sunway, KL it works well. from one end to another...and even outside. TP380 uses PMR446 freqs....it has good features esp it's flexi antenna...but unfortunately it's PMR446. So I opt of Motorola. Still the best interms of being ruggard.

    True...R stands for rechargeable with a charging kit. But the SV700R's charger is 110V originally. But I've found a shop that is willing to exchange the charger and give you a 220V one. The whole SV700R set is at SGD$215. This is one of the latest model and it's quite powerful in com-dist.

    Then again....it's illegal for use in SG. It's your call.

    To use a 110v-240v converter....the unit gets heated up and its not very good in our environment ...eventho it's in aircon room. Will blow soon or later ....but this guy will give the 220v-240v adapter to plug on to the charger base. I still feel worth it. Unless you have frens who are going to US....you can ask them to pick it up at the K-mart. Opps...I didn't say anything....i didn't say anything!!!

    I don't think they bother. Why I know...when I go travelling via plane, I would lug a camera bag and fit my WT inside. After the immigration point, I would take out my WT, so my wife and I would say bye bye and split up to do our own stuff. I would hang my WT over my neck using a lanyard. When we are checking in, as a good citizen and passenger, I would switch off my WT and tuck it into my cam-bag...and you know that all bags need to be scanned. It went thru many times without questioning.

    So my conclusion is...they don't give a damn about the WT you would carry....they are only concern abt guns, knifes and sharp objects. Sad thing is I had my Victorinox penknife confiscated when i totally forgot to put it in my check in luggage. So which is worse??

    there is an 18mile talkie that has a smaller form factor than the SX700.
    comes with a charger, batteries, ear pieces, car charger.

    and the transfer power is at FCC maximum power of 5watts.

    Bro your question I can answer for you. Need help just give me a pm and you bring your BF to meet my BF then I let you test my throat mic. It works with most motorola WT.



    I use it for long distance when doing road marshal riding out of singapore. Ear piece inside helmet and the mouth piece aka throat mic around your neck. No need press button to talk and no worry on wind noise or other people talking, it is only activated when you start talking only.


    Er..even you ahemZzz or cough other party also can hear...because your throat vibration activate the mic.
    Cleanse your thoughts, not by the foods you eat.

    What about those kind of big big private radios that people use to just communicate with other people on the other side of the globe. I remember watching a documentary on it. It's like you can just tune into any radio frequency and chat with people.

    what are those called?
    HAM radio.

    Motorola T5500. 10Km range, 22 Channels, reasonably good battery life (Sanyo rechargable 2500MAh), S$78 from Mustafa.

    This comes in 2 models, replacable batteries AA or rechargable battery pack with charging dock. The replacable model can be used with rechargable batteries.

    Note: above 3Km, not allowed to be used in Singapore.
