Most of my guys are on T-mobil, so we can chat for free to each other. We all have ear pieces and extended mics, so they are suitable for covert ops.

Where I live we have excellent cell reception for this particular provider so coverage isn't an issue.

However, in the southern parts of Florida, like Alligator Alley, I had zero service; Certain parts of Ms. I had zero service, so they are not 100% reliable.

Get your guys to get the Newer Nextel's with the new off Network Direct Connect works Like a 2 way radio within 3 Mile radious

Ive had no Problems In Building Apts and Basements using the I760

Hope this helps

jmh, I have a nextel 540, and sometimes in other states, I get no signal. Does that offline direct connect feature work even if you don't have a signal? If so, then that would be great! TIA

Yes recently was in NJ this week, had no coverage with my Nextel kept saying No Service but the off Network Direct Connect was still Able to stay in touch with the Team

Basicly all the OFF PTT is it makes your Nextel phones Into a Walkie Talkie with other Off PTT Nextel Phones within 3 miles they say, But I wouldn't push it over 2 miles

Try it out, if it don't work for you

Then I sugest Investing in some Police radios off of ebay ur looking at any where from 300 to 2 grand an Piece for really good one's

Good Luck

My bad, I have the i530. That sounds like what I was looking for though. Thanks for the info.

We use the verizon version of direct connect-nextel coverage poor in mass nh me and vt we also use vhf band walkie talkies(motorola sp50 with hidden mic and earpiece with hidden push to talk switch in palm or kenwood tr360 walkie talkie with same set up all are 5 watt units and we also have 100 watt units in most of our vehicles -again i have an fcc business license range for walkie to walkie approx 3 miles depending on terrain moble to moblic approx 25 mile depending on terrain-all my agents are equipped with walkies

we tried vox set ups but are unreliable at times snd sometimes in high noise areas are very bad--I like the vhf units for tac work no noise no dials no waiting no network problems--feel free to contact me with any questions about radio nets or comm anytime

nextel i530 works off-network within a five mile radius. for a straight 2 way radio you cant beat the cp100/cp150 motorolas. for around $130 or $190 with mic you can get up to 10 mile radius without a repeater. we use cp200 for the last two years with no problem. also apply to FCC for your own frequency for additional security.

communication is one of the most important team tools.
