While many of our radios are FRS only, we have a growing roster of GMRS radios. These radios use FRS frequencies in addition to more powerful GMRS channels. Our lineup of Midland handheld GMRS radios gives you the most power and range -- making them ideal for communicating over long distances and rugged terrain.
One of the best benefits of our GMRS radios is that they are compatible with all other GMRS and FRS Midland radios . However, all of our powerful GMRS radios do require a GMRS license from the FCC. A GMRS license is inexpensive and simple to obtain. The license costs $70 and covers you and your family for 10 years. Simply apply on the FCC website and you usually receive your license within 24 hours. For more information check out the article Why Do I Need a GMRS License and How Do I Get It.
We believe the power of Midland handheld GMRS radios should be mobile and easy to carry into the backcountry whether your hiking, skiing, snowmobiling, or hunting. We decided to put more power in your hand.
Our other GMRS handheld two-way radios, the GXT1000 and GXT1050 in Mossy Oak® camo feature 50 channels of clear and crisp communication. Similar to the X-Talkers, these GMRS radios also include our trademark NOAA Weather Alert and Weather Scan. Plus, they also have up to a 36-mile range!
These rugged and extreme range two-way radios have quickly become a favorite among hunters. One hunter outfitted his group with the camo GXT1050 saying, "I bought a set of these radios 3 or 4 years ago. My hunting partner and I were so impressed with their range and clarity that he purchased another set and now we outfit our entire hunting party. They have been extremely effective in the mountains of Vermont and have saved us numerous trips when something caused us to need to contact other hunting party members."
