MicroMobile Two Way Radio is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 42.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Space Saver with all the features. I've had this radio installed in a Jeep JK for about a week now. Besides using this for off road fun I'm also volunteer zone leader for our local fire council in which we operate two GMRS repeaters which we use for local emergency and disaster relief communications. Having the repeater channels is a plus and I can see other members adding this to their vehicles. I'm also a licensed ham radio operator I can tell you this radio is built as well as the amateur and professional radios that I'm used to operating. Besides the MTX 275, I also own the MTX 115, MTX 100 and a few T70 handhelds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Range and Reception and Easy to Use! We upgraded to the MXT275 last month. We have been using our Midland FRS/GMRS handhelds for 2 years between vehicles. However, over the horizon communication was not always possible, and keeping track of a handheld while offroad is not always easy. The MXT275 has increased our range and reception beyond our expectations! The setup on our dash and ease of use of the radio makes this a perfect upgrade. I can highly recommend this setup to anyone!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent GMRS mobile! I got the MXT275 on pre-sale, and did an unboxing and installation video, and have been using it for over a month now. This is an amazing GMRS radio with a decent range. I have little to no interior room in my car, so this was perfect. The control head is attached to a mount that I made out of a ProClipUSA mount, a RAM arm mount, and some ABS plastic sheet. I initially used this radio with a PCTel unity gain NMO mount antenna, but have since moved on to a Larsen LP450NMO puck, and have seen a jump in performance. Can't recommend this enough. The only feature I could ask for would be an ignition sense wire, or an ignition status sense that would turn the radio on when the ignition is turned on, as I have mine wired to an ignition-controlled fuse block, and have to turn it on manually every time I start the car.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Radio I purchased this radio a little over a month ago for my truck, to be used on hunting trips. The handset has great weight, responsive button function, great volume and clarity. I tested with a Midland Base Station, on a lo powered channel had good comms out to about 5 miles on flat open terrain. I purchased the GMRS FCC license to operate. I am excited to get more use out this radio in the coming weeks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for cars w/ little dash space My Subaru Forester lacks a good mounting option on the dashboard to instal a MXT105 or 115... With this MXT275 I can keep the whole base and power cord neatly hidden in my armrest console, and when not in use, I can easily keep the microphone in there too. The controls are easy to use and very intuitive. I’ve never been able to convince my wife to get a HAM license, but this radio is so easy to use, she wants one now for emergencies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Off Roading Handset feels super solid, a little heavy, but overall a solid handset. I used this radio on a trail run in the Colorado mountains, it performed very well. The range was really good when talking to other Midland handhelds.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MXT 275 Two Way Radio The radio worked perfect for my ATV. I used a 6 db antenna with a "L" bracket. The radio is very easy to take off of my ATV. I can plug in my midland helmet speaker with mic or any other midland speaker phone I have. And of course I can use it like a handheld microphone stand alone as well. This unit talks much better than my handheld I had been using. A friend saw how convenient it is to use and he ordered one for his UTV. Thanks Midland! I will send photos when I go out next time into the Colorado backcountry where I live

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent follow on to the MXT115 Been using the MXT115 for many months and happy with performance, but it was in a van and getting to (and seeing) the controls was always a problem. Got the MXT 275 on pre-order (arrived quickly, thanks) and just swapped the unit into the existing bracket, antenna (MXTA11) and wiring. Same great performance but MUCH easier to see and use with everything right there on the handset. Moved the MXT115 to a desk in a trailer where visibility and access to the control unit is better and I'm a happy traveller. Also, a thank you to the service folks. I sent a request for the current draw specs (off, standby, Rx, Tx) and got the data the next day. Good info for those of us keeping track of Ahrs.

Can you please tell me the pinouts for the wiring between the handheld control unit and the main unit of the MXT275? With the pinouts I can see if I can connect these two with existing wiring that may have one or two fewer wires than the standard.

Asked by: DJenner8
Yep, I will send it to you via email. Please note your options will be limited as most of the radio is in the handset.

What is the power output is on "low" or on channels 1-7? How much current does the unit draw when transmitting at high power, low power and just receiving?

Asked by: Xterrible
Hello, the MXT275 is a GMRS radio unable to transmit over 5W of power on channels 1 - 7 per the FCC. That will be the only power setting you will be able to access per programming on these channels. On the current draw; with the radio off it will pull less than 5mA, low transmitting power is less than 1750mA and on high less than 3500mA. Receiving is less than 300mA.

What is the USB output current? i.e 1 amp or 2.1 amp.

Asked by: Xterrible
Our most current test shows the USB output can sustain 3A current draw.

When the radio's weather alert feature is activated and automatically enters WX mode after an alert (not by pressing a button), does the unit eventually shut off WX mode after a period of time?

Asked by: Cale
Hey Cale, you would just press the PTT to exit Weather Mode.

Can this antenna be removed and a mxta11 installed on the base?

Asked by: JonR
Hey Jon, you bet! The 6db gain antenna will quadruple your range!

As of September 2017, the FCC allows GMRS radios to use FRS channels 8-14, albeit with a maximum transmitting power of 0.5 watts. Will this radio be updated in the future to include those channels?

Asked by: JohnD
Hey JohnD, While that is true to an extent, only hand-held portable units may transmit on these 7 channels. Here is the info: FCC Title 47, PART 95, Subpart E, §95.1763 Part D: 467 MHz interstitial channels. Only hand-held portable units may transmit on these 7 channels. The channel center frequencies are: 467.5675, 467.5875, 467.6125, 467.6375, 467.6625, 467.6875, and 467.7125 MHz. §95.1787 GMRS additional requirements: Each hand-held portable unit transmitter type submitted for certification under this subpart is subject to the rules in this section. (4) The antenna must be a non-removeable integral part of the GMRS unit. Our MicroMobile radios have a removable antenna, thus are classified as a “Mobile Radio”; therefore, according to FCC rule those radios are not capable of transmitting or receiving on 467 MHz interstitial channels (commonly referred to as channels 8-14): 467.5675, 467.5875, 467.6125, 467.6375, 467.6625, 467.6875, and 467.7125 MHz. Hope that helps clear things up!

Channels 1-7 on my radio are stuck on low power, changing them in the menu doesn't change the indicator from LO to HI. Any ideas what I should do?

Asked by: Skitter302
Hey there, you will not be able to change that as GMRS radios are limited to 5W of power per the FCC on channels 1 - 7. You would need to switch to 15 - 22 to get full power (GMRS is limited to 50W of power on those channels!).

How much surface area is needed to get a proper ground plane with the included antenna? I know the more the better, but there isn’t much horizontal metal on a softtop jeep JK other than the hood and fender. Where is the antenna mounted in the preview pic?

Asked by: MR11
Hello, You are correct, the more surface area the better. The minimum ground plane required should be ¼ wavelength in radius. At 462-467 MHz that’s about 6 inches. MidlanUSA
