Compact, High-Performance FM HandHelds


This Vertex Standard handheld radio is a compact, high-performance FM handheld radio that provides up to 5 watts of RF power for the 245MHz Band.
One of the new and exciting features of FH-915 is the Enhance Paging and Code Squelch (EPCS), a function that allows you to communicate with only one designated station. A password feature can also be activated to ensure only authorised personnel are allowed to use this two-way handheld radio. This makes your walkie talkie more secure.
