Description

The budget Retevis RT27 is a 35** channel programmable UHF handheld analog FM FRS (Family Radio Service) two-way radio “walkie-talkie” transceiver with simple operation and durable construction, ideal for license-free personal, family or business communications. It has 2.5kHz tuning steps and comes custom pre-programmed with 22 standard FRS channels, 10 extra FRS channels with custom Privacy Codes (PL Tones) set for quiet operation, 2 bonus receive-only Ham Call & Prepper frequencies, and the American Red Cross Disaster Relief channel. Programmable with free downloadable software.

With up to 2 Watts of power and a talk-around range of 1 to 2+ miles (more when used on high-ground with direct line-of-sight), the RT27 provides reliable personal or business communications for individuals, families, recreation, convoys, churches, small event security/stores/construction crews, clubs, Neighborhood Watch & CERT groups to keep in touch when other methods of communication break down. Part 95B FCC Certified.

The RT27 operating range is as good as any other budget FRS radio, even with its stock fixed antenna. The RT27 is intended for short-range, low-power communications, but can achieve impressive ranges in open spaces.

We offer custom programming options for this radio – see the Radio Programming Charts below!

Note: This radio is only “type-accepted” for use on the FRS band.

*IMPORTANT: This radio is meant for personal or business use. Although our radios come programmed for Part 95B compliance with transmit locked to only the FRS band, you are ultimately and solely responsible for operating this device in compliance with FCC licensing and regulations, regardless of how it comes programmed. Free downloadable custom programming software is available for this radio from the manufacturer. We are not responsible for any harm or loss caused by the use or misuse of this device. Please let us know if you have any compliance questions before purchasing.

**The standard RT27 programming software allows access to 22 memory channels. However, the radio can actually hold 35 channels, accessible with alternate dealer programming software. Note: If you reprogram your radio with the standard Retevis software, it will only be able to edit and store 22 channels and you will lose the extra 13 channels we pre-program. We can however custom program the radio for you. The VOX, Voice Compander, and custom CTCSS/DCS features are enabled via optional user programming software, which requires an optional USB programming cable.
