Motorola Has Proven That They Are A Company To TALKABOUT

Having an opportunity to review Motorola’s new TALKABOUT T9580RSAME two-way radios was a great experience for us. Motorola has succeeded in packing clarity, ease-of-use and the latest technologies into a stylish and durable package.

These new radios are amazing. We took the units on several camping trips and were impressed that no matter where the kids snuck off to, we had a way to clearly communicate with them. The units performed much better than I had previously experienced with two-way radios. It did not seem to matter what the terrain was; campground, beach, hiking in the mountains or on the highway in two separated cars…the TALKABOUTS were quite handy to have with us.

One of the best things that we ran into while reviewing the units was the fact that they were at points, our only way of communicating while on trips in areas where there was no cell phone coverage. Camping and hiking in very remote areas with children between the ages of 9 and 16, it is nice to know that they can reach us if they need to.

On the lighter side, these radios can also provide hours of fun, as was proven to us by our youngest and her friends. While camping or just running around the neighborhood, they have spent ours playing secret agent, spy games, etc. Loaded with their convenient, rechargeable batteries and their tough casing, I have the radios out where they can be used by anyone at any time.

These radios also incorporate a great bundle of technology which allows users to monitor weather and emergency services in their area. “The Motorola TALKABOUT EM1000 and T9580RSAME series of two-way radios enable today's active families to enjoy the great outdoors without missing important emergency and weather alerts with convenient, total emergency preparedness for the home," Marjon De Groot, Director of Marketing for Giant International, a Motorola distribution ally. “The radios integrate the best of two-way FRS/GMRS functionality with reliable weather and emergency warnings to deliver a powerful communications tool."

The T9580RSAME radios also help warn users of emergencies through Specific Area Message Encoding (SAME) technology. SAME technology helps filter out distant warning broadcasts and monitors only programmed localized area, helping reduce the chance of false alarms. Leveraging this technology, the Motorola TALKABOUT T9580RSAME radios display a three letter code for the type of emergency, and a voice message plays when an alert is broadcast from the National Weather Service. The T9580RSAME radios are the first in the industry to offer this service together with two-way FRS/GMRS communications.

The T9580RSAME radios allow users to maintain clear connections with the convenience and flexibility to fit every lifestyle. With 22 channels, each with 121 privacy codes, users have 2,662 combinations of communication channels to choose from. Additionally, hands-free communication is available by using the iVOX speech-activated feature, which provides outdoor enthusiasts and active families the freedom of mobility in even the most remote settings.

If you and /or your family enjoy exploring the outdoors, going on adventures as much as we do, log onto the Motorola store or go directly to the product page at: and get yourself a pair of these unbeatable two-ways. They are GREAT!!!!!

The Motorola TALKABOUT T9580RSAME has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price of $89.99 per pair.
