AAA+ Rated 2 Year Warranty and After Warranty Support

But more importantly repair turnaround is measured in days, not weeks like other brands so you are never left hanging when you have critical work to do.

At the end of the day faster repair turnaround means less hassle for you.

All Day Battery Life

The RCA BR850UP has a 1700 mAh Intrinsically Safe Lithium Ion battery included standard. This will last over 12 hours with normal use so you don't have to worry about your radio dying during an extra long shift.

Lithium batteries are the lightest type of batteries available so it makes your radio easy to carry and a pleasure to use.

Lithium batteries do not experience memory effect so there is no special care required. Just charge and go.

In Stock

Last, and most important... we keep them in stock! Thousands of them. So whether you order two or 200 we can ship them out the same day.

Most dealers do not stock at all. If they do, it's only a few. This means you end up waiting days, if not weeks for your order to even ship. Not us.

When you have a critical situation and need your radios immediately - order from Discount Two-Way Radio!

Unbeatable Price

Any comparable radio is at least $500 but with the BR850 you get best features and durability in it's class for only $299.

X-Sound Audio Clarity

The RCA BR850UP uses X-Sound Sonic Plus TM audio technology!

This means louder and clearer audio so you can actually understand the person you are talking to, even in loud industrial environments.

Guaranteed Compatibility

We guarantee that the BR850 will talk with your existing radios. The most common myth is that you have to keep buying the same model of radio in order for them to talk to each other. NOT TRUE. We can program the BR850 to talk with your existing radios, whether it is a Motorola, Kenwood, Icom or Vertex.

You can now expand your fleet of radios with a better radio for a better price without blowing your budget on replacing all of your existing radios.

Big Power, Small Size

The RCA BR850UP is available in either a 4 Watt UHF version. This is business power that will give you clear communication at your facility. If you need even better coverage the BR850 can be programmed to work with a repeater at no additional charge.

All this power is in a radio that weighs only 15 oz and is only 4.75" tall, 2.4" wide and 1.3" thick. It's incredible.

Employee-Proof Construction

If you have used radios for any length of time you know how hard people can be on their radios.

Dropping them, using them as a multi-tool, smacking in to walls while on their belt. We have been in the business since 1997 so we have seen it all.

It still amazes us how much abuse the BR850 can take and keep on working. It has an all metal chassis and as few parts as possible (keeping it simple means better reliability and less to go wrong).

Screw-In Belt Clip

The belt clip screws directly into the metal chassis so it doesn’t snap off like other competing models' plastic clips. This saves you money and the hassle of always buying replacement clips.

FCC 2013 Narrowband Compliant

The BR280 is 100% FCC 2013 Narrowband compliant. When you buy new radios it will arrive already programmed to narrowband. If you want it to talk with your existing radios we can change your existing radios to narrowband free of charge when you buy new RCA radios.
