License-free 2-Way Radios

If you are looking for 2 way radios in Northampton/Northants and need the most cost effective solution, then the licence-free PMR446 radios are ideal for this purpose.  There are no licence or call charges and the radios start from as little as £69.99 for a pair of Motorola T82 2 way radios. If you are looking for something a little more sturdy then the Midland G7 Pro may be ideal for you at £99.99 per pair.  If you need the best license free 2 way radios then we recommend the TTI TX1000 at £109.99 each.

Please note: Licence free radios have a limited output power of 0.5 watts, so the range is more limited than licenced radios, also they share the frequency band with other users, so completely private communications may not be possible.  If a large range is required, or sensitive information needs to be transmitted over the airwaves then we recommend our licenced 2 way radios.

Licenced 2-Way Radios

These radios are more expensive than the licence-free radios, however this generally means that they are more robust and provide private communications on your own specific channel*, they also have a much better range than licence free radios as the maximum output power is 5 watts (as opposed to 0.5 watts). Licenced business radios can also be used with a base station 'repeater' that increases the range even more, for businesses which require very wide coverage.

Licences are available from Ofcom (from £75 a year), and we can help you apply for this.

Popular licensed radios for businesses include the Motorola DP1400, which can be either VHF or UHF.  A slightly lower cost option is the Vertex / Motorola VX-261, or the CRT 7WP which can be programmed to any UHF frequency.

* Licence needs to be applied for from Ofcom, we can help with this and also program your radios to your frequency free of charge.


Digital Licenced 2-Way Radios

For the ultimate business radio system we can supply digital licensed radios, these allow features such as 'ultra-clear communication', text messaging and integration into existing telephone systems. Examples of digital business radios available from Thunderpole are Motorola DP1400 and Kenwood TK-D340 Digital.
