Why Choose a UHF Radio?

The UHF spectrum is used across the world in two way radio systems for commercial, industrial, public safety, and military purposes. A UHF Radio is the perfect choice for an organization that primarily operates in an indoor environment. UHF radios use a higher frequency which means it has a physically smaller radio wave. This allows the signal to penetrate through building walls providing better coverage in an indoor environment.

The UHF band is shared among many users and that is why it needs to be governed by the FCC and a license is typically required to use this frequency. This can involve frequency coordination so that you are assigned a frequency that will be less registered for use in your area by other organizations in order to help reduce interference.


What does "IP54 Rated" mean to me?

This Two Way Radio holds an IP54 rating which is good but what does it mean? The IP in the code stands for Ingress Protection, this will typically be followed by two numerical digits. The first of the two digits run on a scale from 0-6 which signifies the level of protection against solid foreign objects. "The IP5" rating says that this unit is protected down to a dust level. The second digit runs on a scale from 0-8 and signifies the level of liquid protection. The "IP54" rating says that this unit not only is protected from dust but also from splashing water.

The IP54 rating is the most common among two way radios because it will protect the equipment from normal wear and tear scenarios such as operating in a dusty construction site or using the radio in the rain. If you are looking to step up to the next level water protection for your equipment look for "IP57 Rated" which offers water submersion protection.

    Choose the VX231

    Posted by Unknown on 25th Feb 2014

    Choose the VX231 two way radio. I bought mine about 1 month ago and have been using it non-stop ever since. The audio is clear, the features are great and the cost is super low.

    VX231 over the BPR40

    Posted by James D. on 25th Feb 2014

    The guys at two way direct gave me a much more cost-effective solution than my Motorola BPR40 radio that needed replacing. They supplied me with the Vertex VX-231 two way radio and I absolutely love the way it works.

    Love this radio!

    I switched from the CP200 to the VX231 about 2 months ago. Not only does the radio work just as well, if not better. It also costs way less than the CP200. Definitely recommend this product.

    New VX231 Is Awesome!

    Posted by Eric Kesterson on 8th Aug 2013

    Just got the new version of the VX231 (VX231-G7UN) and I love it! I have some other Vertex radio models and now the charger works with the other Vertex radios I have which is a big plus. Unfortunately, the new charger doesn't work with my older VX-231 radios but I had to order new batteries for those anyway so the new battery versions I got will soon work with the new chargers too. Gigidy!
