Introducing the X10DR - The power of a mobile in the palm of your hand!

Long ago, like pre-2013, it was customary for EMS, Fire, and Law Enforcement 2-way radio users to have both a mobile radio (for long range) and a portable (for use when outside the vehicle).  Not a bad idea, except it is costly (VERY costly in the case of P25 radios) and there is the problem of the portable not having the transmitting range of the mobile.  And then…….

Along came the X10DR, a highly secure speaker microphone that allows the user communicate to dispatch and other users at full mobile power at distances of up to a thousand feet away from the vehicle.  The X10DR is no larger that most speaker-microphones, but that’s where the similarity ends. With the X10DR, there are no wires, and inside the microphone is a powerful license free transceiver that links it to an associated mobile radio.

The X10DR works will most brands and models of 2-way radios including BK/Relm, Hytera, ICOM, Kenwood, Motorola, and Tait.  It comes compete with a vehicle charger, antenna and accessory connector cable for most radio models including MotoTRBO.

The price is right – about half the cost of a MotoTRBO or good quality analog radio such as the HT1250.  For those that are using Tier 3 P25 radios, such as the BK/Relm KNG Series, the Motorola APX series, or any other P25 radios, the cost savings are HUGE!  Even with the lowest priced P25 Tier 3 portable radio, the X10DR will come in a less than a fourth the cost of a typical portable radio. Want to know more?  Call us at 800.489.2611 or drop us an email to  You’re going to love the X10DR!

And, for a little more, we offer the incredible Blue Box, designed, built and serviced right here in Birmingham, Alabama.  The Blue Box can operate at distances of up to several MILES from the mobile. You can use your current VHF or UHF analog portables even though your are connected to a P25 DIGITAL radio operating in the 700/800 MHz bands!  Call us for more information.  You’ll be glad you did!
