Midland Radio's new MXT500 MicroMobile Two-Way Radio brings new power to the world of GMRS.

With its 50 watts of power, the MXT500 is the perfect radio for large pieces of land, like farms and ranches. 

This radio will bring clear, reliable, and efficient communication to your farm, sure to make planting and harvest season a little bit easier.

JOHN DEERE INSTALLATION

In order to install your MXT500, we've put together a guide for the install in John Deere combines.

The combine we used is the 9670 model. It's the last of the 9000 series of combines. These models and all new John Deere large frame tractors, sprayers, and forage harvesters have NMO Antenna Mounts pre-installed on the top of the cab.
