Midland’s MXT575 MicroMobile® Two-Way Radio packs a punch with power and features unlike anything else.
With 50 Watts of power, the MXT575 is the most powerful GMRS radio allowed by law. With this power, outdoor adventurers will be able to take their explorations to new levels. Not only does the MXT575 increase radio range, it also brings unbeatable voice clarity to ensure crisp and clear communication.
One of the MXT575’s most popular features is the Fully-Integrated Control Microphone. With all the controls on the microphone you can stash the radio unit away. The MXT575 brings power to adventure without crowding the dashboard.
With the addition of NOAA Weather Scan, the MXT575 gives outdoor adventurers peace of mind. This weather technology keeps adventurers alert in the chance severe weather rolls in unexpectedly, giving them the time they need to react.
The MXT575’s radio unit also includes a USB-C charging port for the fastest charge time on devices like walkie talkies, tablets, and cellphones. Other features include eight repeater channels, split tone repeater capabilities, and 142 privacy codes to minimize unwanted interactions. The MXT575 operates on both narrow and wide bands.
When you’re off-grid, you can trust Midland to keep you connected.
