Motorola APX8500 Two-Way Radio

About The Motorola APX8500 Two-Way Radio

The Motorola APX8500 is a commercial two-way radio often used by Mine Sites, Government, Military, Correctional Facilities, and more.

A high-speed chase. A massive traffic accident. A natural disaster. First responders must be ready to communicate at a moment’s notice in any situation.

The APX 8500 all-band mobile radio combines unlimited interoperability, secure Wi-Fi connectivity, and purpose-built design, enabling ease of installation and removal. It can easily connect to the VML750 LTE vehicle modem via the micro USB interface and utilize a broadband network to create an in-vehicle ecosystem for offloading data applications in the field, increasing the safety and efficiency of public safety users in and around the vehicle.

New for 2018, the APX 8500 High Power variant delivers up to 100W of transmitter power, for extraordinary reach and coverage. It’s ideal for incident commanders who need to coordinate multiple teams across different frequency bands – especially in situations where network infrastructure is unavailable.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Far Can I Get?

Two-Way Radios work on line of sight.

What Channels Can I Use?

CB or Private frequency.

Which Radio Is Best?

There is no definitive answer as there are too many radios to choose from, they work on different systems, contact us for a quote.

Do I Need A Private Frequency?

If you are using your radios on a crane then a private frequency is required in order to comply with OH&S.

If you will be using radios for safety reasons then a private frequency is recommended in order to prevent unnecessary outside interference that can easily be caused with standard UHF CB radios.

What is the difference between a Two-Way Radio, Walkie Talkie and Handy Talkie

Nothing, they all refer to the same piece of equipment however a Two-Way Radio is the preferred terminology in industry. Walkie Talkies and Handy Talkies often refer to toys or recreational two-way radios.
