Where can I use this two-radio?
Whether you’re off on a ski trip, trekking across the Pennines or running around at work, this is a great two-way radio. With its rugged design and IP65 (weather resistance) rating this unit is water, dust and shock resistant. The radio comes with 15 pre-programmed channels and scan function. It is compatible out of the box with Motorola, Kenwood and Icom PMR 446 units, as well as other Mitex PMR 446 units. With clear communication and no need for a call plan or wires, this licence-free PMR radio is a great alternative to mobile or land line phones.

How far away can I use this PMR 446 radio?
This radio can communicate up to 10km away under ideal conditions. Use in built up areas or obstructions will reduce the range of the unit. Using in built up areas or with obstructions between handsets will reduce the range of the radio. You can even use optional voice activated transmission (VOX) for hands-free communications.

Mitex PMR 446 radios are compatible with Kenwood-style headsets. See our range of Mitex headsets and accessories here.

What is this radio compatible with?
This Mitex radio with 16 channels is compatible with a range of other PMR 446 radios out of the box. Channels 1-3 are compatible with Motorola, channels 4-6 are compatible with Kenwood and 7-9 with Icom. The radio has Mitex frequencies on channels 10-15 and a scan function on channel 16. The key lock stops you from accidentally changing channel and missing incoming messages. Mitex can upgrade this radio to a PMR Pro unit for a small charge (you would need a Business Radio Light Licence for use if upgraded).

How long can I use these radios for?
With its large 1800mAh battery you can get up to 12-14 hours of talk time out of this radio which is built to last an entire work shift on a full charge. With its built-in lithium ion battery and individual mains charger, you can charge the radio from any mains socket. The handset comes with a belt clip and loop fasteners to secure your radio while you use it. It is pre-programmed and ready to use immediately after charging.
