About the Midland MicroMobile® ORMXT115VP
This GMRS radio bundle pack contains Midland's MXT115 MicroMobile radio and a pair of GXT1000VP4 handheld units. If you're heading into the wilderness with friends and family, it's a terrific way to keep in touch on the trail.
A big-time base
Midland's MXT115 MicroMobile radio gives you three times the range of traditional GMRS walkie-talkies, plus a host of high-tech features that will help you stay in touch when you're getting away from it all. With a full 15 watts of power and an external magnetic-mount antenna, you'll enjoy remarkable range and reliability over open terrain. You'll be able to access 8 repeater channels and 15 high/low power channels with the easy-to-reach buttons, while 142 privacy codes make it unlikely that you'll trip over anyone else's transmissions. You can scan channels, too, so you won't miss anything if you don't want to. The MXT115 also gives you 10 NOAA weather channels, so if a front's rolling in, you'll be able to plan accordingly.
The external microphone ensures that you'll be heard clearly, while "silent mode" operation ensures keeps distracting beeps and tones out of the mix entirely. You'll also appreciate features like auto-squelch, monitor mode, keypad lock, an external speaker jack, digital volume controls, and a backlit high-contrast LCD that's easy to see, day or night. There's even a charging USB port, so you can keep your phone at the ready, too.
Installs wherever you need it
The MXT115 is easy to install in your home or vehicle. The detachable flip-frame mount secures on or under the dash, and you can slide the radio out when you need to. Midland includes a 12-volt adapter for mobile use. For use in your home or hunting lodge, we recommend plugging into the Accele PS30 12-volt test bench power supply (sold separately).
Have a pair of hand-helds
Midland's GXT1000VP4 hand-held GMRS radios are rugged, reliable, and ready for your trip on the trail. With 50 total channels, 142 privacy codes, NOAA weather alerts, and a 36-mile range, these water-resistant units are a great addition to your outdoor gear collection.

More details on the Midland MicroMobile® ORMXT115VP
Midland 2-Way Radio Bundle: The Midland ORMMXT bundle consists of a pair of GXT1000VP4 hand-held, 2-way, GMRS (General Mobile Radio Service) radios along with an MXT115 mountable, GMRS, 2-way radio. Both offer all-weather capability, long range, 142 Privacy Codes, NOAA Weather alerts, and more.
Channels: The MXT115 provides 15 GMRS channels (1-7 & 15-22) that can be selected manually or with the Auto-scan mode that continuously scans all 15 available channels for activity. It also includes a Monitor Mode that lets you check for activity on the currently selected channel. This mode also lets you adjust the volume of the radio if you're not receiving a signal from an assigned transmitter. The MXT115 has the ability to access up to 8 repeater channels which can significantly increase the radio's range and coverage area.
Note: Operation of a GMRS radio requires an FCC license.
NOAA Weather Radio: Also included with the 2-way radio is the NOAA Weather Radio function, which enables the user to receive weather reports from designated NOAA stations. The NOAA Weather Scan function allows you to scan all 10 NOAA Weather Service channels and will lock on to the strongest channel in your area. A Weather Alert function can be set which will sound a siren when a Weather Alert goes off.
Squelch and Privacy: Squelch is the ability of a transmitter/receiver to suppress or mute the channel if the signal level weakens enough. This helps keep out unwanted channel noise and stray signals from other devices, especially when there's no signal being sent from a transmitting device. The MXT115 has adjustable Squelch sensitivity, with a level of 00 being the most sensitive allowing the squelch to open on very weak signals and a maximum setting of 09 which requires a very strong signal to open the squelch. The radio also features Privacy Codes via CTCSS (Continuous Tone Coded Squelch System) and DCS (Digitally Coded Squelch). These systems allow several users to share the same channel without disturbing each other. When CTCSS or DCS is enabled for a selected channel, the channel is muted to all incoming signals unless they carry the correct CTCSS or DCS tone. When a transmission with the correct tone is received, the mute is lifted and the voice audio can be heard. The MXT115 has 142 total Privacy Codes, 38 CTCSS and 104 DCS.
Range: With 15 watts of power, the MXT115 can provide exceptional communication range. The following is an estimated range guide:
- Maximum distance is up to 50 miles line of sight with no obstructions.
- 10 - 15 miles with partially obstructed line of sight (trees, small hills, etc).
- 5 - 10 miles with major obstructions to line of sight (buildings, larger hills, mountains, etc).

FRS channels are automatically set to Lo, per FCC regulations.
