Product overview

• Twin pack of Midland G7 two-way radios
• Keep in touch on site or while camping
• Get in contact up to 12km away
• 304 privacy combinations on these 8 channel PMR units with 38 privacy codes per channel
• Run off an internal rechargeable lithium ion battery – chargers included or four AA batteries (not included)
• No licence required

Where would I use these PMRs radios?
With a 12km range the Midland G7 is perfect for use at work or for hiking in the great outdoors. These PMR 446 radios use the licence-free 446 MHz frequency band for communication between the two units. With no need for a licence or call plan, they are a great alternative to mobile phones.
The two-way radios are easy to use day or night with the backlit LCD display and belt clips to secure the units. They’re also capable of VOX or voice activated transmission for hands free operation. For more covert communications there is a twin pole socket for standard accessories such as earpieces (not included). The unit can use vibracall to alert you to an incoming message by vibrating rather than audio which is great for noisy workplaces.

What is the range on these two-way radios?
These PMRs can reach up to 12km under ideal conditions. They are still effective in built-up areas or with obstacles between handsets, though the maximum range will be reduced. These radios are great for outdoor and indoor use. Simply scan and monitor to find the channel for you.

How many frequencies do these two-way radios have?
Never struggle for a clear frequency – the radios come with 8 channels and each channel has 38 privacy codes giving you 304 privacy combinations. Using the keypad lock you can make sure you never miss a message because you’re on the wrong channel. The handset has five selectable call tones and optional roger bleeps so you know when a communication is over.

How do I charge my radio?
The LCD display includes a power indicator to let you know exactly how much battery you’ve got left. When you need to recharge, simply place the handsets in the mains powered dual charging docks as the batteries charge in the radio. If you can’t wait for the units to charge then you can replace the supplied battery packs with four AA alkaline batteries per unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from In the 80s I used Midland as CB radio and found it reliable,signal strength good and performance one of the best.Today I used these compact handsets in an environment that I was doubtful that they would work, a site encased with steel and high voltage running through but,they supast themselves.Of all the hand held radios I have used the clarity and battery life outshone.It was nice still to see after all these years Midlands name still leading the forefront the radios will become a welcome item in my tool kit Thank you Midland,WELL DONE!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Midland G7's really do offer excellent value for the money, and our motorcycling training scheme has been using them for years. Battery packs are very good and offer a great deal of usage depending on setting (there are 2 settings, Low/High) and in the event of a flat battery pack, these can be substituted for 4 AA battery's. The main downside of batteries is the lack of auto cut-off of battery charging once fully charged, therefore it's quite easy to over charge and damage them. Batteries do not like being partially charged and discharged, therefore it's highly recommended to fully discharge and then charge them for 10 - 12 hours. VOX works effectively when using the radios hand held (3 settings, 1, 2 or off) and works equally well when connected to a microphone, but the quality of the microphone is important to ensure bike/wind noise doesn't accidently activate them. Mine are connected to an Autocom system with PTT, and I have never had any issues during use. Controls are very simple, although the position of the jack point could be significantly improved as it's situated on the right of the radio, therefore it's quite easy to damage an ear piece for example when tucked away in a pocket. Positioning the jack point at the top of the radio would be far preferable. All in all, for cost, function, reliability, call quality and over all service of the G7, we have been and continue to be delighted with the purchase, all backed up with the usual impeccable service provided from Maplin.. 5 stars doesn't give a true reflection for what you get for the money, and Maplin deserve 5 stars alone for their service.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I brought these to do remote commissioning works on a building site. I wasn't expecting much as we had a pair of £250 radio's and they weren't very clear at the top of a 3 floor building but these deliver very good clarity and range through 30 meters and 3 floors worth of concrete and utilities. The build quality is what you would expect for a cheapo radio and I will be tiring not bash these around too much but they are sealed well enough to deal with rain unaffected. I was disappointed to find out that the batteries weren't Li-Ion and that the battery charger doesn't support automatic cut off at the end of the charge cycle which means you have to keep an eye on the charging process to ensure you don't over charge your batteries. I haven't had much of a play with all the features and all I really need is a standard press a button and talk functionality. If it weren't for the terrible charger unit then these radios would have gotten 5 stars. I would have paid £110 for these radios just to have a charger that wasn't a cheap 90's throw back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great price good spec Brought these as my last set died, after 15 years or so, of regular use, (also midland). I wasn't sure weather to buy these or the Motorola T80, but went with these because of price, I'm glad I did. Took them camping in France with my son, they were crystal clear, they covered the whole campsite,which was many levels, also lots of structures & trees. Was only able to test them up to about 2.5 miles.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor reception i bought this for my disabled wife so if I left her to go shopping it would be easier to use than a phone but tested it and it cut out between 100 and 200 metres in a built up place it just was not fit for purpose or should I say my purpose so I had to end up taking it back

Not too sure about the message in the video. 1. 18 hours between each charge - is that's mean 18 hours standby or talk time? 2. 5 km range but the information on page says 12 km. So which one is correct? Thanks.

Asked by: Andy
This will have 18 hours standby time . and the 12km range is line of sight as in no Terrain, buildings or any obstacles between the two units.
