Discount Two-Way Radio – Which Brand is the Best (RCA BR200D, Motorola, Kenwood, etc.)?

When searching for an affordable two-way radio, buyers have a few choices. RCA, Kenwood, Motorola and Vertex all make models in the sub $300 range.

Each has its strengths and weaknesses, so which brand is the best?

Models come and go, but for the perfect combination of rugged dependability and affordability, you can rarely go wrong with an RCA two-way radio.

Right now, I am a huge fan of the RCA BR200D. I have sold hundreds of these radios and my customers don’t have any problems with them. In fact, they rave about them!

They work straight out of the box and fulfill the needs of most two-way radio users, including manufacturers, schools, security services, hotels and more. They simply do the job. When you’ve got a million other things to take care, of the last thing you need to worry about is dealing with a fussy, flimsy, static-filled radio you can barely hear. That’s why I recommend this one – it’s SIMPLE, LOUD and WORKS GREAT.

Before I discuss some of the features of the BR200D (and tell you about a special offer), check out what Erik Estrada (“Ponch” from CHiPS, and a real-life sheriff’s deputy) has to say about RCA 2way radios.
