Operating in the VHF MURS frequency band, the PT-150M, a professional-grade portable 2-way radio, allows business-only users to operate license free at 2 watts anywhere within the U.S. This saves customers the hassle and expense of licensing that is typically associated with “FCC Part 90 business band” radio frequencies, and provides out-of-the-box functionality and simplicity, noted the manufacturer.

The PT-150M features eight channel capacity, which allows maximum use of all 5 MURS frequencies plus reuse of three frequencies for additional work groups, etc. A 1,000-mW speaker provides easy-to-hear clarity and volume. A slim, lightweight design is ergonomic and easy-to-carry and use.

The seven-character alphanumeric display provides easy-to-read icons showing battery status, channel scan on/off, keypad lock on/off, and more. Nine programmable function buttons allows access to backlit for keypad, accessing additional features and configuration of the radio. A rugged MIL STD 810F rating, IP65 resistance rating against dust and water, and a clamp-on audio accessory connector ensures long, trouble-free service.

Each PT radio comes complete with antenna, Lithium-Ion battery, spring-action belt clip, drop-in charging stand and AC adapter. Optional accessories include: a 6-unit gang charger, remote speaker microphone, lightweight ear set and nylon carry holster.
