Midland, Motorola and Kenwood business radio channel compatibility

Midland-Motorola-Kenwood-508.jpgThe Midland BizTalk BR200 is a very capable, yet underrated business radio. It's also unbelievably affordable. At only $90, the BR200 is priced well below other onsite business radios such as the Motorola CLS1110, CLS1410, the Kenwood PKT-23 and the 6-channel Kenwood ProTalk TK-3230DX. If that weren't enough, the BR200 can communicate with all four of those models and, at 2 watts, it has twice the wattage of the Motorolas!

If you have a fleet of Motorola or Kenwood radios and want to add a BizTalk BR200 into the mix, chances are you probably can.

However, you need to do a little research first to be sure your radios are compatible before you buy. How? It's easier than you think.

First, check the list of assigned and supported frequencies for the radios you currently use. If you are using channels with the default assigned frequencies, check the default frequency table in your radio's manual. If you are using another frequency supported by the radio, cross reference the frequency code number assigned to the channel(s) in your radio with the list of those codes and frequencies printed in the owner's manual for each make and model.

Once you know the frequency and privacy code (if any) assigned to each channel in your radio, search for the same frequency or frequency and privacy code combination listed on the Midland BizTalk BR200 Default Frequencies Chart. If you find a match, your radio should be compatible for use with the Midland BizTalk BR200.

If you are using the default frequencies pre-assigned to the first one or two channels on your Motorola or Kenwood radio out of the box, it's even easier, since the BR200 may already have same frequency and privacy code configuration on the same channel. The chart below matches the default frequency and channel assignments of the Midland BizTalk BR200 with the channels of the Motorola and Kenwood radios.

Midland BizTalk BR200 Default Frequencies

Midland-BizTalk-BR200.jpg Midland is well known and respected for its line of FRS/GMRS, CB and emergency weather radios. The company recently expanded into the business communications market as well, with the introduction of its first portable handheld onsite business two way radio, the Midland BizTalk BR200.

The BR200 supports 56 UHF business frequencies and has 16 channels, some of which are pre-programmed with frequencies and codes most commonly used by some of the other onsite business radios, most notably the extremely popular CLS Series radios from Motorola and the Kenwood PKT-23.

Here is a list of Midland BizTalk channel numbers with the default frequencies and privacy codes assigned to them out of the box.

6 8 467.9250 82.5
7 5 467.8500 82.5
8 6 467.8750 82.5
9 2 464.5500 179.9
10 8 467.9250 179.9
11 5 467.8500 179.9

14 8 467.9250 -
15 5 467.8500 -
16 6 467.8750 -

Although these channels are pre-assigned to these frequencies by default, they can be re-assigned to any of the other supported 56 frequencies stored in the BR200, many of which are also supported by other makes and models of onsite business radios.
