The World's Most Durable Two-Way Radio
The World's Most Durable Two-Way Radio
Compare all RCA Handhelds
When lives are on the line you need a radio that's not only durable, but filled with the features you need to perform at your highest level.
The BR950 by RCA is our ultimate workhorse. Designed with Sonic Plus extra loud audio and an incredibly long lasting lithium-ion battery, the BR950 is equipped to handle the longest shifts.
This feature-packed model is also equipped with an extra large numeric display and a full keypad allowing for numerous features such as: private and group calling, Man Down emergency signaling, radio identification so you know who's calling and a multi-pin accessory connector that's capable of standing up to the harshest environments.
The BR950 is the industry standard in high performance professional radios.
We Ran It Over With a Truck...
To prove how durable the BR950 is we ran it over with a heavy duty truck. And when that wasn't enough.... watch the video to see what happens.
We knew the BR950 was a durable radio, but this amazed us. You can read about it here: Kansas City Star
Our construction site in Wichita, KS was recently hit by a tornado on 4/14/2012. We had 6 of your B950 radios on a 6 bank charger in a construction trailer that was completely demolished by the tornado. In picking through the rubble spread over a large area, we were able to locate all 6 of the B950 radios and the charger (which was laying under one of the trailer walls in a field).
Out of curiosity, we tested the charger and were supreised to find it working although it had received considerable damage. We put the radios on the charger, and after a couple of hours were amazed to find that every single one of the radios was in perfect working order. This is no small accomplisment. The radios had obvoiusly recieved some pretty torturous treatment in the tornado. Some of them were dug out of the mud and water.
Your radios have passed a durability test that only Mother Nature could provide. Thank you for a wonderful product.
Your Satisfied Customer,
AAA+ Rated 3 Year Warranty and After Warranty Support
This radio puts its money where its mouth is and gives you peace of mind with a class leading 3 year warranty. Even Motorola can't touch that.
All repair work is performed in-house at our state of the art repair facility by certified engineers. This means that over 95% of RCA repairs are completed in less than three business days… unlike our competition who send most repairs back to the factory for depot repair which takes weeks, not days.
At the end of the day faster repair turnaround means less hassle for you.
Even after three years you can still call us for help. If the radio does need to be repaired after the three year warranty has expired it is only $85 flat rate (includes labor, parts and return shipping). Compare that to Motorola's factory recommended flat rate price of $193 for the CP200.
FCC 2013 Narrowband Compliant
The BR950 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.
The Best Seller
Every day dozens of companies and organizations across the country switch to RCA.
Our customers buy more RCA two-way radios from us than all the other brands combined.
Businesses just love the performance and durability of RCA two-way radios and especially the money that they save.
The BR950 has a huge selection of available accessories. Earpieces, speaker mics, headsets, holsters, VOX headsets, it has it all.
The accessory jack has a screw-in connector which securely locks the accessory in place so it doesn't get yanked out by accident. This also protects the accessory jack from damage.
It is also compatible with any Motorola 2-prong accessory as well.
X-Sound Audio Clarity
The BR950 has a large diameter 800mW speaker. Compare that to 500mW for most other radios in it's class.
This means louder and clearer audio so you can actually understand the person you are talking to, even in loud industrial environments.
All Day Battery Life
The BR950 has a 2500 mAh 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.
We guarantee that the BR950 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 BR950 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.
The BR950 is one of the only radios on the market that offers 5 watts of UHF power! If you are operating in large industrial plants or facilities and are having coverage problems then the BR950 is what you need.
