  1. Kenwood PKT23 radio is splendid

    Review by Diedre Adams (Posted on February 25, 2019)

    We are a church group who meets twice a week. Our car park attendants use the Kenwood PKT23 radios to manage the traffic. They work in the rain and hold their charge for over a month. Very impressed with the high quality and service from Radio Warehouse. Splendid.

  2. Delighted

    Review by Debbie D - YMCA OHSC (Posted on February 21, 2019)

    Thanks for asking my opinion, I'm more than happy to. We use these at our after school day care centre... they work wonderful. We can look after the kids without experiencing interference from truck drivers. The language used by those drivers is highly inappropriate for the children's ears. We turned to radio warehouse for a solution and these Kenwood 2 way radios are perfect! No interference, they work in the rain, the batteries last nearly an entire week, we can talk throughout the large play ground with the choice to wear an earpiece or not. Wonderful service all round. Thanks to Radio Warehouse for making it so easy to buy walkie talkings.

  3. Perfect Service

    Review by Simone Harrison (Posted on February 16, 2019)

    Arrived overnight, programmed and ready to go for the weekend. Thanks for great service! First time I’ve used walkie talkies but these are really easy to use.

  4. Staff love them!

    Review by Beach View Cafe (Posted on February 05, 2019)

    Easy to use, light weight, fantastic Kenwood audio. Front of house staff use them with earpieces whilst I can hear my team and answer the phone, whilst the radio sits on my desk in the back office. Rechargeable battery lasts 2-3 days. Also waterproof and work for about 1 kilometre. Great purchase!

  5. Much better than the Motorola CLP107 (My personal opinion)

    Review by Chase @ Culture Kings (Posted on January 03, 2019)

    At Culture Kings we serve celebrities, musicians, and famous athletes. We wanted to deliver an even higher standard of customer service experience and improve staff communication. So a few years ago our manager gave us the Motorola CLP107 radios. I notice that Kmart, Office Works and the Apple Store also use the same devices. They are clearly very popular, however, after using them for a couple years, we made happily made the switch to the Kenwoods as a far better quality alternative.

    We found that the Motorola CLP 107 radio only lasted about 13-14 months before the the radio died, the buttons would start sticking, the audio would get crackly. Having to continuously buy new radios and new earpieces as they broke, just as the warranty expired for all of our staff became a really painful exercise. I didn't expect this from a Motorola system who I thought were the best brands, so our ops manager sorted these Kenwood radios for us from Radio Warehouse.

    I wasn't even aware that Kenwood made walkie talkies but I'm *really* grateful we made the switch to this much better alternative to the Motorola CLP107. The Kenwoods are just as easy to use and offer the same fantastic audio quality... The staff all love them!!! But the Kenwood PKT-23X are *MUCH* better quality than the Motorolas, even when used by our casual staff.

    If you are trying to decide between the Motorola CLP107 vs the Kenwood PKT-23X, I cannot praise the Kenwood highly enough as as much better alternative. Thanks to the team at Radio Warehouse for looking after us!!!!
