The MicroMobile™ MXT100 GMRS radio has been one of the most popular Midland products this year. Its unique design and features make it an in-demand accessory for anyone who needs reliable communication when going offroad or off the grid. It has also been extremely well received among preppers for its power and versatility. The five-watt two-way radio gets almost double the range of traditional handheld radios. The 40-mile (line of sight) range is the max GMRS range on the market.
With the product’s popularity, users have been getting creative with the MXT100. These are the best applications of the MXT100 we’ve been able to find so far:
This rugged piece of tech truly had our engineers acting like kids on Christmas morning when we found out about it. Built from a 30 cal. ammo can, this 3D printed base station is specifically built for the MXT100 and features 1/2″ pieces of polyethylene and a laser-engraved faceplate. The device even features a three amp USB input. When sealed, the can is waterproof and crushproof. This mod had us nerding out big time.
If you’re looking for more of a DIY approach to taking your MXT on the move, Tin Hat Ranch’s Ham-O-Can is also built into an ammo can. It is not available for purchase, but we found the how-to guide online. This radio go-box can also be completely solar powered and features two USB ports and a DC charger. If you’re in the mood fore a preparedness project, this would be the place to start.
Our good friends at Mountain State Overland got a ton of use out of the MXT100 on their overlanding trek through New England in season three of their YouTube series. They installed MXTs in most of their vehicles and used them as their primary vehicle-to-vehicle communications while offroading through the backroads of New England. Check out their videos to see exactly how the MXT100 is used in tandem with Midland’s handheld two-way radios.
