Motorola MC220R/MC225R Radios for Students? Can't Post

Hi - If any of you have any experience with these radios, either good or bad, please advise in my thread with the same subject in the Gear and Rigging forum. Thanks!

Mods - Sorry to double post, but this one seems to fall into both categories. Feel free to lock this one.

we just ordered 6 UHF Blackbox radios from surplustwowayradios.com. I think the Motorola radios are good, but I would consider the durability of the 'family' radio that you can buy at walmart.

We've been using VHF Spirit MV11C radios for years now, they are great, but they are also 20 years old and falling out of favor with the FCC bandwidths to come into effect soon.

UHF if you can afford it, and I am told that the newer Motorola replacements for the Spirit are not that great, i.e. cannot replace antenna, poor workmanship etc.

Hopefully these Blackbox ones work out,
