UHF Motorola R2 Radio

The RCA RDR1520 UHF 2-way radio is a good choice if you plan to use the radio indoors. UHF, Ultra High-Frequency signals don't travel quite as far outdoors as VHF signals, but they do a better job of penetrating things like wood, steel, and concrete; this gives you better range and performance in urban environments and around many buildings. UHF radios also have a smaller antenna.

VHF Motorola CP200D Radio

The RCA RDR1520 VHF 2-way radio is 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.


The RDR1520 is made to last. It is rated IP55 (Water-Resistant / Dust Resistant), so it can be used even in harsh environments.
This radio is compatible with the Motorola BPR40, CP185, CP200D and SL300 in analog mode.
