With very little information on the internet about 2 way radio frequency’s, it is very rare when we get a chance to re post, with permission, an article from this industry.
The Kenwood’s ProTalk® PKT23K two-way business radio is specially designed for those that want a Compact (about 5 inches with the antenna) and Small (only 3.9 ounces with the battery) radio with clear communications and has up to a 5 mile range or covers up to a 225,000sq.ft open warehouse*, and up to 80,000sq.ft in low power setting. If you were looking at the Motorola CLS1110 or CLP1010, you need to check this one out, because the PKT23 is about $20 less and you get double the warranty (2 years), 50% more power (1.5W vs. .5W) and four channels for your growing business instead of a single channel.
The ultra-strong polycarbonate antenna is fixed while the 1430mAh lithium ion battery delivers enough juice for up to 15 hours of battery time. To compliment the battery, the included 3 hour Micro USB fast charger is designed to keep your motorola cp040 walkie talkie up and running at peak efficiency. The radio of choice for restaurants, hotels, retails stores and much more… This tough radio meets military specs giving it a high endorsement. To meet MILITARY 810 C, D, E and F grade, the new 1-pin connector cover has to be on.
