VHF Motorola CP185 Radio

These Motorola CP185 VHF 6-pack radios are a good choice if you plan to use the radio outdoor only and in an area that's relatively free of obstacles such as trees and buildings. Very high frequency signals travel further than UHF but does not provide the penetrating characteristics of UHF. VHF is also a better choice when traveling. Please check your existing radios to make sure that this Motorola BPR40 VHF radio is compatible.
