Like family radios, Milos don't need a radio license to use. But that's where the similarities end.
Milo lets you talk and hear everyone naturally, without the clunky push-talk-release-listen of walkie-talkies that makes it hard to have a natural conversation.
Most family radios have low quality speakers, and offer only a few pre-set channels to choose between, which means no privacy. And because they're push-to-talk, they're not handsfree. In contrast, Milo gives you high quality sound for private conversations, all without needing to press any buttons.
All that makes Milo a perfect fit for your family, even younger kids. No special training needed - in fact, they don't need to remember to do anything but be themselves and talk. You still have the option of using push-to-talk, but most of the time you're not going to need that.
