Did your backcountry partner disappear around the bend in the couloir you're about to ski, and you're wondering if it's clear to drop in? Did a large foggy cloud just obscure your line of sight to the bottom where they're waiting? Have something you forgot to tell them? Solve these situations and more with the Rocky Talkie Mountain Radio, allowing communication in all sorts of terrain and conditions where it's otherwise tricky or impossible. This radio is rugged, durable, and easy to use. It's designed with climbers and skiers in mind and was developed to excel in the kinds of adverse conditions we see all winter. The specialized lithium-ion battery lasts over 4 days even when it's quite cold out. With an included caribiner and backup leash, it's hard to drop, but if you do, rest assured that the shatterproof LED front screen and thermoplastic protective coating can handle it. You can expect 1 to 5 miles of range while in the undulating mountainous terrain typical of the backountry. However, if the line of sight is clear, this 2 watt radio can transmit up to 35 miles. It's ready to go out of the box and easy to use with gloved hands. Radios are a great way to maintain communication throughout your tour, improve your safety margins, and ensure you have options when things deviate from the plan. Remember, you need a pair of them, unless you're content just broadcasting your thoughts into the void.

  • 2 watt broadcast power allows for 1 to 5 miles of range in the mountains, the maximum allowed without a license.
  • IP56 rated for protection from snow and splashes.
  • Over 4 days of battery life down to -20°F with a 1550 mAh capacity.
  • Rechargeable with an included USB-C cable.
  • Supports standard RMS broadcast frequencies / privacy codes and is interoperable with other brands.

Hi Lawrence,

 There are several privacy codes you can use for any given channel and you can toggle through them with the buttons on the radio. This video from Rocky Talkie will explain the process better than I can here through text!

Question from Jeffrey Smith
does this come with an ear piece and can you use it hands free?
Answer from Gabriel I
Hi Jeffrey, it does not come with an ear piece out of the box, but it does have a standard K1 (dual pin 3.5mm-2.5mm) mic / speaker jack, so you can use a variety of accessories from Rocky Talkie or other third parties.
