Motorola RMV2080 Product Information

IMPORTANT NOTE: This is a VHF radio. VHF radios are designed mainly for outdoor use. The VHF waves travel well over open land and water and do well in foliage conditions and near wooden buildings. However, VHF waves tend to be easily disrupted inside buildings, in city conditions, etc. Unless you are using your radios almost exclusively outdoors, you will want UHF or Digital radios.

The difference between UHF and VHF can be explained with frequency penetration. VHF waves travel about twice the distance of UHF waves on open ground, rolling hills or through foliage. However, VHF waves are very poor at penetrating walls, buildings and rugged terrain. So, if you are working exclusively outdoors with open land, rolling hills or heavy trees, VHF radios are the best. In any other situation, including indoor-to-outdoor use, UHF radios will be the choice.

Operating on 27 VHF business-exclusive frequencies and FCC Narrowband-ready, the Motorola RMV2080 VHF 2-Watt, 8-Channel Radio is an exceptional choice for on-site communication.

Up to 2 watts of power allow you and your team to communicate when you're up to 220,000 square feet apart. It can even power through up to 13 floors in a steel or concrete-reinforced high-rise building.

Innovative customer programming software, which works with any computer browser, lets you interchange profiles with RDX-series. That makes it easier than ever to add RM-series radios to your existing radio fleet, and it's a free Internet download. (A separate programming cable is required.)

Advanced features combine to make the Motorola RMV2080 VHF 2-Watt, 8-Channel Radio the smart choice for businesses operating indoors or out. Crisp, clear audio is standard with these two-way radios. They are each equipped with a powerful 1,500mW speaker that closes out distracting feedback, even in noisy surroundings.

You can even customize your list of channels by selecting from 16 pre-recorded functions, which makes it simple for your team to stay in contact no matter what they're doing. For the ultimate in charging flexibility for your Motorola, consider a 6-radio multi-charger.
