Wide Band Coverage for Added Value
One radio designed to cover VHF and UHF bands, which provides expanded options in frequencies to use.
More Scanning Options

Exclusive Auto-Range Transpond System – ARTS™
Only Motorola radios are designed to inform you when you and another ARTS™-equipped station are within communication range.
If out of range for more than 2 minutes, your radio senses no signal has been received and beeps to alert you. The base station can then alert the field unit to move back in range. A great solution to keep your workers coordinated.
