Are you looking for a push-talk radio system which will weather years of heavy use? Motorola Solutions VX-260 series will supply fantastic assets to any retail or security team.  The Motorola Solutions VX-261 is the landmark model in the line, offering simple, affordable yet reliable analogue connectivity without any unnecessary bells and whistles.

The Motorola Solutions VX-261 operates through 16 different channels, and has two separate buttons on its control panel which you can use to program your experience.  It boasts a push-to-talk functionality missing from even some of the most advanced two-way radios on the market.  Take advantage of scanning technology to access the clearest channels, and a stable, reliable audio experience.  With less than 5% audio distortion at 1 kHz, you are working with a crisp, surprisingly capable radio system.

Offering just over 10 hours’ battery life as standard, the simple VX-261 will see you through a standard shift without any concerns.  At just under 300g with antenna and belt clip included, it is a radio which you can affix to your person and move freely with without it ever becoming noticeable or cumbersome.  In fast-paced working environments, lightweight technology is always going to be an asset.

The VX-261 can also be easily introduced into radio fleets of all sizes and natures.  Introduce this analogue system into a mixed digital and analogue network with ease, making use of a number of different signalling standards.  2-tone and 5-tone technology are always available to you, as well as FleetSync, MDC1200 and DTMF.

The Motorola Solutions VX-261 is the perfect choice for any team or unit looking to connect through lightweight, reliable, fuss-free radio services.  The VX-261 is the entry level system, with the VX-264 adding on a few extra features.  Do take a look at both options when considering your needs – this is a very popular line!
