Where can I use this two way radio?
This Pro PMR radio is up to ten times more powerful than standard PMR 446 radios. With powerful transmission and clear reception, this licenced radio is great for use on large work sites and in heavy urban environments. You will require a Business Radio Light Licence for use – one licence covers an unlimited number of handsets. The licence is just £75 for 5 years, and you can apply for one using the application form included in the box.* With its rugged design and free communication between this unit and others in the General range, this radio is a great alternative to mobile phones. There is also a twin pack of this two-way radio Order Code A68JX.

How far can this radio transmit messages?
This radio is capable of reaching its maximum distance of up to 25km in open country under ideal conditions. In built up areas and cities with obstacles between handsets, the radio is still capable of up to 10km – perfect for work sites, motorbike convoys or even schools and universities. The Mitex Pro PMR broadcasts in the 400-470 MHz ultra-high frequency (UHF) range to get better signal at distance. The radio also has two different channel spans and steps to give you more options.

How many channels does this radio have?
With 16 channels, you should always be able to find a clear channel. Channel 13, 14 and 15 are common across all Mitex UHF radios, including the security UHF (A69JX) and site UHF (N17JJ) . Channel 16 offers a scan function, which can be used to find your channel quickly and easily. You can even use optional voice activated transmission (VOX) for hands-free communications. The unit also has a socket for a headset to use for more covert communications or just to cut down on outside noise.

Mitex General 5W Pro PMR radios are compatible with Kenwood-style headsets. See our range of Mitex headsets and accessories here.

How long can I use this radio for?
With 8-10 hours of talk time, you should be able to use this Pro PMR radio for an entire work shift on a full charge. With its built-in lithium ion batteries and individual charger, you can charge the radio from any convenient mains socket. The handset comes with a belt clip and loop fastener to secure your radio while you use it. The radio is pre-programmed and ready to use as soon as it is charged.

Asked by: tomtaft
You can program different frequencies but you would need to purchase the cable ... it is not included.

do i have to be a business to get the radios at the bulk buy price and is the price quoted all you pay or is that the price for each radio ie 5+ single radio is 71.99 bulk buy is that for all or 71.99 each.

Asked by: mm3rbf
These prices are available to all, not just businesses, the prices are per unit so 5 would be £71.99 x 5.

We are an adventure trail for kids. Our staff have various functions and will be typically covering an area of some 5 acres. We need a system that can communicate between all or just 2 of these. Are we on the right track with the Mitex?

Asked by: phosh
Yes, these would be ideal.
