The Best P25 Two-Way Radios for Emergency Preparedness
When an emergency strikes, instant and dependable communication is the best way to get crews organized and the situation under control with minimum risk.
Radios which meet the P25 CAP specifications fit the bill, and are the de facto standard for fire, police, and ambulance departments nationwide due to their ruggedness and interoperability regardless of the manufacturer. There is only one problem: because these radios are expensive, most municipalities have relied on federal grant money to acquire them…and this grant money has dried up.
P25 radios are in reach of everyone’s budget, however, if you know how to buy smart.
Why the RCA RPX4500/4600 are the best P25 radios for emergency preparedness
RCA’s biggest P25 competitor is the Motorola APX Series. At costs of up to $5,000 per radio, or even more, this places them out of the realm of reality for many buyers.
Fortunately, the RCA RPX4500 and RPX4600 are just as good as the Motorola APX series in my opinion, but the huge difference is that you can get five or six P25 radios for the price of one Motorola! That is a BIG DEAL for those on tight budgets.
The RCA RPX4500/4600 compete head to head with other P25 two-way radios in the following categories:
- Dual-mode operation
- Great battery life
As you can see, RCA has all the bases covered.
Where we definitely “got ‘em beat”
On the last bullet point above, “Warranty,” buying a P25 radio through us has a definite advantage. We offer a 4 YEAR WARRANTY on the RCA RPX4500/4600 radios, and we service them with our own highly trained, in-house technicians.
Our average turn around? 5 business days. With free expedited shipping both ways.
What happens if your P25 CAP compliant radio needs servicing through our competitors? First of all, Motorola only gives you a two-year warranty. Ours is double that. Second, when you ship back to your dealer, they don’t have the parts on hand and the techs on staff like we do.
So guess what? They have to ship to the factory for your repair — which can take as long as NINETY days to get your two-way radio back. Jeesh.
I do have good news for you though. Even if you buy the competing brand at another dealer, we can fix it here for you at the same great terms, free shipping and everything.
Test one out with no strings attached.
For serious buyers who meet our qualifications, I can send a test radio for you to try out. I am positive that when you use it for a while, you are going to want to keep it and buy more for your department.
Here is a testimonial from one satisfied customer:
"Wanted to let you know we've been using the radios we purchased from you guys and we are extremely happy with the product. These are by the far the best radios amongst the Minesweeping ships out here forward deployed. We truly appreciate it. " — Lt. Danny Nin, USS Defender
