  • Midland introduces new T290 and T295 GMRS radios

    Midland T290VP4 GMRS Two Way RadiosWhen the FCC re-wrote the rules for Part 95 in 2017, there was some expectation that the market would become inundated with higher powered FRS radios aimed specifically at small, on-site business users as well as consumers. As expected, radio manufactures have indeed added more FRS radios to their product lines, and the license free Family Radio Service, now allowing more powerful radios, continues to be popular among business and personal users alike. Up until now, the GMRS has largely been ignored. That may be starting to change. With the introduction of the new T290 and T295, Midland seems to be shifting focus back to the GMRS.

    The T290VP4 and T295VP4 are two new additions to the Midland X-Talker line. The family resemblance is quite apparent. In fact, they are reminiscent of several other radios in the T70 series, although not as contoured, as an LXT633. They have the same general features and operate on the same frequencies as their T70 cousins. The difference, then? it's all about power. The T71, T75 and T77VP5 are all FRS radios, operating at well below 2 watts. The T290 and T295 are GMRS models, capable of transmitting at nearly 3 watts.

    Midland T290VP4 GMRS Two Way RadioT290VP4
    The Midland T290 is most like the T77 in features and function. It has the 22 GMRS channels plus 14 extra channels pre-programmed with privacy codes, which at first glances seems somewhat gimmicky in terms of "more channels", but can actually be convenient for those who want to filter out unwanted chatter from others but don't want to take the time or effort to set manually a CTCSS or DCS code to a channel themselves. As for the choice of codes, the T290 has 121 available, which can be very helpful if you are in an area where the airwaves are clogged.

    In addition to the GMRS channels, the T290 also has 10 NOAA weather channels with weather alert. It includes a weather scan feature to maximize its benefits as an emergency weather radio. It features 9 level e-Vox, silent operation, channel scan, and 5 call tones. It also has adjustable high, medium and low power settings.

    The T290 is cosmetically pleasing, with an attractive black and silver two tone color scheme. It's fully compatible with other FRS/GMRS radios, but as a higher power radio, it does require a GMRS license to operate. The X-Talker T290VP4 Value Pack comes with two radios, a dual pocket desktop charger, AC adapter, two C-ring style earpieces with in-line PTT, two belt clips, and two 700mAh battery packs. Price- $89.99.

    Midland T295VP4 GMRS Two Way RadioT295VP4
    The Midland T295 is the same radio as the T290, with two important differences. The first one obviously cosmetic. It's camo, using the same Mossy Oak® camouflage design used by the T75VP3 known as Break-Up Country. If you're a fan of camo, this may be quite appealing. If not, stick with the T290.

    The other difference with the T295 is audible. The T290 has 5 call tones. The T295 replaces those with 5 animal calls. These include Cougar, Duck, Crow, Wolf, and Turkey. Like the GXT1050, T65VP3 and T75, This is clearly a radio designed with hunting and other outdoor activities in mind.

    As with the T290, the T295 requires a GMRS license to operate. The X-Talker T295VP4 Value Pack includes two radios, a dual pocket desktop charger, AC adapter, two C-ring style earpieces with in-line PTT, two belt clips, and two 700mAh battery packs. Price- $99.99.

    While part of the X-Talker line, the T290 and T290 lack a couple of features that are standard with the other T-Series radios. Most notable is the USB port. Simply put, there isn't one. Most, if not all of the other models in the series allow drop-in and USB plug-in charging. The T290 and T295 allow plug-in charging, but through a dual purpose two-pin audio/charge port only. Also, Many other X-Talker radios provide for multiple power options for greater versatility, most notably the option to switch from rechargeable batteries to alkalines, and vice-versa. The T290 and T295 do not offer this option. They operate on NiMH rechargeable battery packs only. It's not necessarily a deal breaker, but something to consider when shopping around.

    Some GMRS operators may note the lack of certain features expected of a dedicated GMRS radio. The first is a detachable antenna. It isn't an option with these radios. The second is a higher capacity lithium-ion battery, a preferred choice for some GMRS users who transmit on higher duty cycles. Also, these radios are not repeater capable.

    General Mobile Radio Service operators who need a radio with a heavier duty cycle or repeater capability for use on the GMRS may want to opt for something like an MXT115, MXT275 or MXT400 MicroMobile radio. However, if you just need a consumer grade GMRS radio for recreational use or on the go, the T290 and T295 are pretty good buys that may fit the bill.

  • The new Wouxun KG-UV7D and KG-UV9P high powered portables are here!

    Wouxun KG-UV7D and KG-UV9PWouxun has a reputation for feature rich, well constructed handheld transceivers at great prices. Models such as the KG-UV8D and KG-UV9D Plus have long been favorites of many hams, particularly for their powerful features, cross-band repeat capability and, of course, the now legendary Wouxun color LCD display. Recently Wouxun announced it is taking two of its popular, classic models, refreshing them into new models and adding more power. These two new radios, Wouxun KG-UV7D and KG-UV9P, are high powered portables, with up to 5 watts on UHF and 7 watts on the VHF band. Now, the new Wouxun KG-UV7D and KG-UV9P high powered portables are here!

    Wouxun aimed each model at a specific user, although both can be used by amateur radio operators. According to Wouxun, both radios have the same FCC IDs as their predecessors and use the same programming software. The KG-UV6D accessories are also compatible with the KG-UV7D, and KG-UV9D Plus accessories will also work with the new KG-UV9P.

    Wouxun KG-UV7DKG-UV7D
    The Wouxun KG-UV7D is the successor to the KG-UV6D, a business grade workhorse of a radio that was Part 90 type accepted for business use. The 7D not only replaces the 6D, it is the same radio, with one exception. It now has 5 watts of power on UHF and 7 watts of power on VHF.

    This extra power only enhances the already powerful features carried over from the 6D, such as the 199 programmable memory channels with CTCSS and DSC Scan, priority channel scanning, and 1750 Hz burst tone. the selectable power feature allows the 7D more latitude as well, giving you the option to transmit at high, medium or low power instead of simply in high or low power mode.

    Other standard features include VOX support, SOS function, multi-scan mode, busy channel lockout, auto and manual keypad lock, customizable power on display message, English voice guide, FM radio, and a built-in flashlight. It's also quite rugged, as it is IP55 dust and waterproof. After all, it's primarily built for business use. Price- $109.99.

    Wouxun KG-UV9PKG-UV9P
    The KG-UV9P is the model that is more likely to appeal to hams. It is an amateur radio, and replaces the KG-UV9D Plus. In fact, it is a 9D Plus, with the addition of the same 5 watt UHF and 7 watt VHF power boost given to the KG-UV7D.

    Like the 9D Plus, the KG-UV9P has UHF/VHF dual band tranmit, 7 band reception, 999 programmable memory channels, QT/DQT encoding and decoding, DTMF encode/decode and 25KHz/12.5KHz wide/narrow bandwidth selection. It features simultaneous dual band reception and can transmit on one band at the same time it receives on the other!

    It also has the now legendary Wouxun color LCD display with five brightness levels and plenty of screen space to display two bands simultaneously. The display alone is a premium feature of this radio, and greatly enhances the overall operating experience.

    One of the biggest features of the 9D Plus was the cross-band repeater. The KG-UV9P includes it as well! Other features include multiple scan functionality, priority scan, CTCSS/DCS scan and the ability to scan two bands simultaneously.

    Of course, as we all know, hams like to talk. So, operating an amateur radio at higher transmit power for an extended period may require an power source that can adequately handle it, and without losing uptime. No worries. The KG-UV9P includes something really special, a high capacity 3200mAh battery pack! This super sized battery comes standard with the 9P package, which adds even more value to an already feature packed portable! Price- $139.99.

    The KG-UV7D and KG-UV9D may be made of the same stuff as their predecessors, but they do add something new to the mix - more power. Both models are now available to ship from our warehouse at Buy Two Way Radios.

  • FCC issues advisory against the import, sale and use of unauthorized UHF/VHF two way radios

    FCC Enforcement Advisory Banner

    The FCC issued an enforcement advisory today against the import, sale and use of unauthorized VHF/UHF two way radios effective immediately. The advisory reiterated that non-compliant radios can not be imported, sold, advertised or operated by anyone in the United States.

    The advisory was issued September 24, 2018 and implies that a crackdown on cheap, imported radios is imminent. The FCC warned that violators will be subject to penalties, including monetary fines up to $19,639 per day during the violation and up to $147,290 for an ongoing violation.

    The "crack-down" began in early August when the FCC went after an Amazon seller of a variant of the immensely popular Baofeng UV-5R, or more specifically, the UV-5R V2+. The FCC issued a cease and desist order to this seller, making it clear that they considered the UV-5R V2+ to be non-compliant. We discussed this at length in episode 126 of The Two Way Radio Show podcast.

    The latest FCC enforcement advisory points out several examples that would violate the commission's rules, most of which refer to use of these radios on business or Land Mobile frequencies. Specifically:

    - The ability to transmit on public safety and/or other unauthorized channels. Some radios have the ability to transmit on a wide range of frequencies, for example 400-512 MHz. Within this range are frequencies that are reserved for government and public safety use and the radio should prohibit transmission on these. It was absent from this advisory, but the cease and desist mentioned above points out that the UV-5R should not allow the programming of frequencies directly from the keypad by an end user.

    - The ability to transmit using wideband. Several years ago the FCC mandated that radios operating on land mobile frequencies must support a maximum of 12.5 kHz bandwidth. Devices that support 25 kHz were prohibited.

    - Radio devices modified after they are FCC approved. After a radio is approved by the FCC, if changes are made to the radio it generally needs to go through the approval process again.

    - Radio products marketed for Ham/Amateur use that are capable of transmitting outside Amateur frequency bands. Radios intended for use by Amateur Radio operators do not require the typical FCC approval process that business radios require. However, these radios must be locked down to only amateur bands. For example, an amateur radio cannot also transmit on business, GMRS or MURS frequencies.

    The Enforcement Bureau of the FCC noted a substantial number UHF/VHF radios marketed, sold and used in the United States that are not FCC certified or compliant with the rules. These radios are capable of operation on multiple bands across multiple radio services for which they are not certified, increasing the risk of interference to authorized or licensed entities and operations, such as federal government operations and private licensed users. Devices that do not meet the requirements and are not FCC certified for use on these radio services are in direct violation of the rules and should not be used by anyone, unless the user is an amateur radio operator.

    An amateur radio operator, or ham, is the only exception to this requirement, provided the radio is only capable of operating on frequencies reserved for amateur radio operation. However, the operator must have a valid amateur radio license to operate the radio and must only operate it according to the FCC rules.

    Our Plan of Action

    As we mentioned in our podcast, once the cease and desist was issued to the Baofeng seller, we started taking steps to ensure that all of the radios that we sell are compliant. The advisory issued today is actually helpful to us, as it provides specifics on what would be considered non-compliant.

    We currently carry several import radios and market them to Amateur Radio operators. We are now working with the manufacturers of these radios to have all models that we carry locked down to the ham bands only (144-148, 222-225, 420-450 MHz). Some radios will be able to be updated soon with firmware changes, others will be closed out and updated models ordered as they are made available.

    What is the Impact?

    Because we market these products to amateur radio operators, we are more in touch with how this will impact those users. There are certainly users who love the fact that they can have a single radio programmed for their work frequencies and also their ham repeaters. We've also heard of users programming these radios for use on the GMRS. If the FCC is successful, this will soon no longer be an option, although it technically never should have been one.

    Perhaps we'll see many popular radio models re-issued with the same hardware in ham or GMRS only versions. The digital models will likely also have a business radio edition.

    We may also see many of these import radios disappear altogether. Some radios are sold on Amazon at very low prices and they are clearly marketed to businesses, but they only support analog operation. Becoming FCC certified isn't going to be an option for these radios, since the FCC is now requiring most radios to essentially support digital operations in order to be granted approval.

  • Prepare for Hurricane Florence - get a weather radio!

    Hurricane Florence Tracking Map
    Map courtesy National Hurricane Center.

    Hurricane Florence is bearing down on the East Coast of the US, and is expected to make landfall within the next 24 hours. For those on or near the coastline, personal preparation for this monster storm should already be at or near completion. For those who are further inland, there is still some time to prepare, but the storm is closing in. Are you ready?

    If you don't have an emergency preparedness kit, build one now. You can find the list of the 13 most essential items needed for an emergency kit on The Department of Homeland Security's web site at https://www.ready.gov/build-a-kit. You can also download a printable version of the FEMA emergency checklist in pdf format to print out and carry with you or post in a convenient location.

    Of course, one of three most important items on this list is a Battery-powered or hand crank radio and a NOAA Weather Radio with tone alert.

    All of our handheld FRS and GMRS radios are battery powered, and many also feature NOAA weather channels with emergency and weather alerts. One model, the Midland EX37VP, is a complete FRS radio emergency kit with a flashlight and emergency whistle - two other items on the DHS emergency preparedness list. Choosing this model checks off multiple items on your list.

    Some of our portable weather radios, such as the ER210 and ER310, are multi-function devices equipped with built-in SOS beacons/flashlights, digital clocks, USB charging adapters, and multiple power options. These weather radios include a dynamo hand crank as recommended in the DHS emergency list, and even solar power!

    Some of our NOAA approved desktop weather radios, such as the Midland WR400, are not only equipped with S.A.M.E. Digital Technology, but also include other features such an emergency battery backup.

    We also have a weather radio that does it all in one unit. The Midland XT511 Base Camp Two Way / Emergency Crank Radio has almost everything you need for emergency communications. It's a 22 channel GMRS two way radio with NOAA all hazards alert weather alert radio, AM/FM radio, alarm clock, built-in flashlight, emergency hand crank, both AC and DC adapters, USB charging port, and hand microphone. The alert override automatically switches to emergency weather alert broadcasts while you listen to the AM/FM radio.

    There are many models to choose from, and the features vary. Which emergency radio is best for you? Our Emergency Weather Radio Comparison Guide lists some of our models and puts them all on one simple chart so you can compare their key features fast. The guide is FREE to download and print for your personal use.

  • Our web site has a fresh, new look!

    Fresh lookWe have an exciting announcement - today we are launching a new design of our web site! We've been hard at work on this new site for quite some time now, and we think that you're going to love it. This new design moves our web site to an entirely new platform. The new system adds a ton of new features and other improvements, but it should also make it easier for us to keep up to date going forward.

    You may be wondering why we went with such a drastic change, instead of upgrading the system that we had. Our previous system was built entirely in-house, starting when the company was founded in 2002. It had been upgraded quite a bit over the years, growing as our company grew. There were things about it that everyone loved, and it was completely tailored to our processes and the way that we did business. Ultimately, however, as the pace of technology moved forward, it became harder to stay up to date. We decided a few years ago to bite the bullet and move to a more standard system that offered modern functionality and the ability to customize.

    As you probably know, we have spent a lot of time building content, writing articles, and recording videos and podcasts for this site over the past 16 or so years. For better or worse, we made a decision to migrate all of our products, pages, and content to the new platform instead of starting from scratch and just migrating select content. Basically, we wanted all of the old stuff to work on the new site too! This turned out to be not-so-easy and the source of many delays, but hopefully it will all turn out to be worth it!

    Let's go through some of the new features that our new platform offers. First of all, if you're a frequent customer you'll be happy to hear that you can create an account. This allows you to see your old orders, reorder easily, save payment information (on a secure, off site PCI compliant server) and more. If you're on a mobile device (and our stats indicate that you most likely are!), you'll see a version of the web site that is more appropriate for viewing. Our navigation has changed to make it easier to find what you're looking for. It's easier to find promotions and discounted items. When viewing product lists, you can now often narrow your selection by clicking features from the left sidebar. Those are just a few things that you'll quickly notice. After the dust settles, we plan to host a webinar to take you through some of these updates and new features. If you've signed up for our newsletter, look for a message letting you know how to attend.

    Considering the size of this project, we we are prepared for the possibility of a few bumps along the way. We would very much appreciate your feedback if you notice something that seems out of place. We also appreciate your patience with our sales staff as we adjust to our new system. Thanks for hanging with us over the years. This update was just the beginning - we have a ton of ideas for where we can go from here. Trust me, it's going to be a fun ride!

  • Vertex Standard Radios Are Being Re-branded As Motorola

    Big changes are coming soon to the Vertex Standard line of two way radios. It's common knowledge that Vertex Standard is owned by Motorola, but has always been operated as a stand-alone brand. Early in 2018, this will no longer be the case. Motorola is creating a new line of radios, informally known as their "Commercial Tier" products, which will include a combination of several existing Motorola radios as well as several Vertex Standard models that will be re-branded as Motorola.

    What's Changing With Vertex Standard
    A few small exceptions aside, it looks like Vertex Standard will cease to exist as a brand. Most popular Vertex Standard models will join the Motorola Solutions Commercial tier, and some radios will be discontinued.

    The following Vertex Standard products will be rebranded as Motorola Solutions:

    The following models will be discontinued:

    What's NOT Changing With Vertex Standard
    It's important to point out that customers are not being left out in the cold with this change. Of course, if you are a user of Vertex Standard radios, the warranty is still valid and will continue to be honored. Vertex Standard has been a Motorola Solutions brand for years now, so we don't expect much to change regarding warranties and support.

    It's also important to point out that the physical radios that are being rebranded will not be changing either. For example, a Motorola VX-261 will be exactly the same product as the current Vertex Standard VX-261.

    Motorola Commercial Tier Radios
    In addition to the Vertex Standard models listed above, the following current Motorola Solutions models will also be a part of the Commerical tier:

    • Portable Radios: CP200d, SL300, CP185, BPR40, DTR650, VL50
    • Mobiles: CM200d, CM300d
    • Repeaters: SLR5000

    Dealers selling the new Commercial tier products will be known as "Commercial Radio Value-Added Resellers". It is expected that most Vertex Standard dealers will become dealers for the new Commercial products.

    Stay Tuned
    There are still some details that are being worked out, so stay tuned for updates. At the moment, we expect to start seeing the new Motorola Commercial Tier radios sometime in January, 2018. However, the Vertex Standard branded models won't disappear overnight. I expect most Vertex Standard radios will still be readily available for at least the first half of 2018. Check back here for updates!
