Vertex Standard (a Motorola company) is rebranding many of their products to the Motorola brand. This model is now the Motorola VX-261. If you purchase this product you will be shipped the Motorola branded version, which is fully compatible.

Vertex Standard delivers a new combination of performance and value with the VX-261! Enhanced audio, premium features and a universal battery system are all built into the VX-260 series to create a two way radio with efficiency, reliability and interoperability that gives you more for less.

The VX-261 has 16 channels, 1 group and 2 programmable keys for a custom configuration without complication. Its 700mW internal speaker boasts superior audio output so you hear or be heard loud and clear.

Signaling options such as MDC1200® FleetSync® 2-Tone and 5-Tone encode/decode and DTMF allow for seamless integration with other radios in your fleet. Interoperability isn't an option with the VX-261, it's a standard.

Safety is also a standard for the VX 261. You can program an emergency alert that can be activated at the press of a button. The Lone Worker feature is ideal for monitoring employees who work remotely. It is VOX capable, when using a VOX accessory. It's also a Vertex Standard radio, which means ARTS™ is also built right in.

As for power? Not a problem. It uses the Vertex Standard Universal Battery System (UNI), allowing you to use the same charger base used for charging all other Vertex Standard Radios using UNI battery packs, thus increasing energy interoperability.

The VX-261 comes with 1380mAh Li-ion UNI battery (2300mAh battery optional), UNI Desktop Charger, AC Adapter, Antenna, Belt Clip, User Guide and a 3 year manufacturer warranty from Vertex Standard.

Vertex Standard VX-260 Series radios are FCC Part 90 Narrowbanding Compliant.

  2. Worth the money. I plan to purchase more radios like these. review by Volunteer Protective Services, LLC on 8/30/2017

    My company provides security for university campuses. I purchased the Vertex VX-261 to use at our Tampa, FL campus. I tried them out first at our Knoxville, TN campus which has four levels. The clarity was fairly good at approximately 1/4 mile away with several tall buildings and a lower elevation parking lot between radios. I wish it had been a stronger signal considering the terrain and distance. In Tampa, FL, the campus is a typical block and metal stud one level complex. In addition, officers patrol an off site parking lot approximately 1/10 mile from campus. The radios work perfect in the flatlands of Florida, and pretty well at the Knoxville, TN location.

  3. These are good radios. Work well in our 100,000 sf plant. review by Bill on 4/19/2017

    This is the 3rd time that I have purchased this product. We primarily use the radios to communicate within departments. We also have distributed radios to the administrator and the director of nursing in our nursing home. We have a 3 story commercial building with a maximum distance of 500 feet and we experience no degradation of signal at all. We have also been able to communicate with someone a half-mile away.
