Motorola TLK150 Product Information
Summary of Motorola TLK-150
If you need a long-range two-way radio for your business, why not try an unlimited-range radio? That’s the Motorola TLK-150.
This device, along with the rest of the Motorola TLK series, can communicate no matter where you are with nationwide coverage. That’s because it runs on a 4G LTE network, much like a cell phone. The TLK series uses a cell tower network, so it requires a cell tower connection plan to use.
It’s also Wi-Fi capable and Bluetooth capable, for added convenience.
The TLK-150 was made specifically for vehicle fleets. That means trucking companies, bus drivers, utility companies, and contractors can stay connected from the road. If you’re a trucking company that makes frequent cross-country deliveries, then this is an ideal choice for your fleet.
It mixes the ease of two-way radios with the reach of a nationwide mobile network to create a reliable and all-encompassing level of service. You’ll be able to keep in contact with your drivers no matter where they might be in the United States.
This radio is compatible with MOTOTRBO systems, LMR, and smartphones, connecting to each through the Motorola WAVE OnCloud app. That makes the TLK-150 extremely versatile for businesses of all sizes.
You can also avoid some costs typically incurred by UHF and VHF radios. For example, there is no FCC licensing for the Motorola TLK-150 whatsoever. Certain UHF and VHF devices are subject to licensing fees from the Federal Communications Commission because the U.S. government owns and controls those airwaves. Since this device uses a cellular network, you won’t have to pay Uncle Sam a dime.
Set up is a breeze when using the TLK-150, as the device requires no manual programming on your part — as long as you get it from Tech Wholesale. Our specialists will set up the devices for you before delivery, so all you have to do is open the box. This will save you a lot of time, getting your radios out on the road faster than ever before.
It’s also highly efficient. Managers can use the TLK-150 to contact multiple teams simultaneously with one button. That means you could reach out to your entire fleet, even if they’re all over the continental U.S.
If durability is a concern, you’ll be happy with the Motorola TLK-150’s military-grade hardware. This device meets MIL-STD 810 standards for temperature, pressure, shock, radiation, rain, dust, immersion, and vibration.
When it comes to placing this nationwide range radio in your vehicle, you’ll find that its small and compact design makes it easy to mount in a convenient spot.
Usability is also not a concern. The TLK-150 utilizes a one-button PTT microphone that can be operated safely while employees are on the road.
If you want a more convenient experience, Motorola offers several TLK-150 acessories that are sold separately.
Because of the 4G network capability of this long-range radio, you’re getting 4G communication speeds. That means it has one of the fastest PTT setups and call times in the world.
What’s more, no matter where your vehicles might be, you’ll be able to pinpoint their exact location thanks to a special feature of the Motorola TLK-150. The GPS-based fleet tracking allows you to see where every vehicle in your fleet is at any time.
That means you know exactly who to call on if you get an emergency service call from a specific area. And if a vehicle is stolen or you get a complaint about a driver, you’re able to review the GPS information and stay on top of the situation.

You’ll never have to guess where any driver or staff member is at any time. The Motorola TLK-150 comes with a GPS tracking feature that lets you track every single vehicle. This is a key feature that will come in handy in the event of an emergency or theft.
Military Grade Hardware
The Motorola TLK-150 has been built to military-grade specifications. This includes MIL-STD 810 standards for pressure, temperature, radiation, shock, dust, rain, immersion, and vibration.

As such, you want to make sure that the device you choose can meet the rigors of the daily grind. Luckily, the TLK-150 definitely lives up to those requirements.
No FCC License Fees
Many UHF and VHF radios require an additional FCC licensing fee. However, the Motorola TLK-150 is a digital device that runs off of a 4G-LTE cellular network, meaning that the FCC has no claim to the signals that you’re using. When using a digital radio like the TLK-150, you’ll never have to shell out extra cash to meet the demands of the U.S. government.
Is the Motorola TLK-150 right for your business?
If your business utilizes a vehicle fleet and has to cover a lot of distance, then the Motorola TLK-150 is a perfect solution for you.
If you have a team of professionals who service customers’ homes, like electricians, plumbers, and landscapers, it makes sense to have a Motorola TLK-150 installed in their vehicles.
These devices are perhaps best suited for the trucking industry. If you have truckers driving big rigs throughout the U.S., there’s no better option. This unique nation-covering two-way radio ensures that they arrive safely and complete their work.

Motorola TLK-150 FAQ
What Is the Range of the Motorola TLK-150?
The Motorola TLK-150 is the ultimate long-range radio. It’s a true nationwide radio, with a range covering the entire continental United States.
This is possible because the radio does not use UHF, VHF, or even digital airwaves to broadcast signals. Instead, it runs on 4G cell tower coverage, meaning that it can reach anywhere you can operate a cell phone. It also connects to Wi-Fi.
That means communications will be reliable whether you’re trying to reach an employee that is three miles or 3,000 miles away.
The Motorola TLK-150 doesn’t use just any 4G network. It uses the Verizon Wireless network, which is the largest and most reliable 4G LTE network in the U.S.
Does the Motorola TLK-150 Need an FCC License?
The Motorola TLK-150 does not need an FCC license. That means no license fees have to be paid to the U.S. government to operate this radio.
Certain UHF and VHF radios require the owner to purchase a license from the FCC. While many radio owners never get a license, it’s still technically something that the government asks for. That’s because the government owns and operates the UHF and VHF airwaves.
So why doesn’t the Motorola TLK-150 need a license? Because it does not use a UHF or VHF band to send communications.
Instead, this long-range radio runs on a cell tower connection. It actually uses the Verizon 4G LTE network to send signals anywhere throughout the U.S.
Do I Have to Pay for Cell Service With the Motorola TLK-150?
Yes, a cell network plan is required to use the Motorola TLK-150’s nationwide coverage.
You can buy the Motorola TLK-150 outright and use it as desired. There would then be a $35 per month fee to use the radios.
You also have the option to agree to a two-year contract through cell network providers. You would then be partially reimbursed for the cost of the TLK-150 radios.
An optional feature of this nationwide range radio is to pay an extra $32 per month to access several dispatching features, like GPS viewing for each device. That is a flat $32 per month fee, regardless of how many radios you have on the network.
