Essential Info

MURS stands for Multi-Use Radio Service. The MURS frequencies are permitted to transmit at a higher wattage than Family Radio Service devices, which gives them ten times(or more) the possible range of FRS devices.

MURS gives you tranmission distances of several miles and is highly recommended for applications where there are a lot of obstructions such as trees, buildings, etc.

This kit contains one MURS hand-held radio and one MURS Alert Transmitter

The M538-HT is a hand held MURS transceiver that will receive alert signals from the MURS Alertâ„¢ transmitter and also can be used for two way voice communications between other MURS transceivers. The HT has 5 channels and 38 sub channels to help you communicate with other users. The M538-HT is powered by a 6 rechargeable AA batteries (included) that will last for about 40 hours on a charge. The HT is capable of communicating over distances of several miles*. The FCC also allows you to use MURS without a license. Although other radio services require a license, MURS is license free. When an alert signal is received from the MURS Alertâ„¢ transmitter the HT will sound off with the voice of the alert signal and will also display an alert icon as a visual display that an alert signal has been received. This has many different applications for small businesses, farms, security guards, outdoorsmen. Anyone who needs to have real time monitoring and two way voice communications will benefit from MURS.

*Actual range will vary depending on the local terrain.

JOHN -- chicago, IL   7/27/2012
range is narrow and must move directly in front of eye of cover; does not have wide range to detect motion

Bought two of this units for our farm. Works great as described.
SHADOW FOX -- peterborough, NH   5/7/2010
Radios have ok range..maybe just over 1000 feet..the volume could be louder..along with the overall durability if the whole unit(cheap plastic) broke antenna off at the base two days later

I had purchased 2 of these units for our farm in Canada and decided to try out one of the units at our home in Texas. The driveway alert works so well! When people arrive at the gate their arrival is announced and we can magically open the gate for them to pass through. At the farm it has a greater use for security as our neighbors can keep a handheld at their house to be alerted of any visitors to our home when we are away. An added benefit is a second motion sensor near the house which often alerts us to deer passing by. We love it! Probably the best benefit is the range of the units. I can be anyware on our farm and get an "Alert" when a vehicle comes down the driveway. That way I never miss deliveries or unexpected visitors and I can continue with my work in the woods.
