MicroMobile Two Way Radio is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 11.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from I just installed this radio in my truck. Very impressive radio. The range talking to my wife who was using a Garmin Rino inside the house and me on the MXT400 on high power was about 7 miles in an urban setting. One of the reviews stated privacy codes did not work. I found that they do indeed work. Follow the manual on setting the codes. I suspect people are using the DCS codes vs the CTCSS codes where you look at the manual and cross reference the privacy code to the frequency you must select under CTCSS. Works perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This radio blew my mind the first time I used it. The most range I’ve ever gotten from a GMRS radio. I was able to talk to a friend with another MXT400 who was over 10 miles away in a decently wooded area. Don’t forget your FCC license!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jury is still out, but,,,,,,,,we'll see TX/RX distance is great! PL code problem w/ other radios! We use 15.7 or 462.55 PL 85.4, we have found either the MXT400 has an issue or our other radios have an issue, not completely sure, just being honest. The radio so far has been impressive, however when we use PL codes Reception on the MXT400 becomes sporadic, sometimes it works and then other times it doesn't, for now we are using just the channel with no code, the radio works great this way, very impressive distance, it is connected to a Diamond 50a fiberglass whip and SWR is fantastic. We did try a completely different radio to test the PL problem and the MXT400 worked fine when contacting a Motorola, but Baofengs not so good for some reason? Now we just need to find HTs that will work with the MXT using PL codes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I’ve been using 2-way radios for years and if you count the walkie-talkies I played with as a kid then pretty much most of my life. The MXT400 is by far the best 2-way radio I’ve ever used! The range is remarkable and the features are great. I tested these out with a handheld GMRS radio and even though we were using mobile and handheld we got a lot more range than just two handhelds. I was several miles down the road before my wife and I lost clear signal (and she was indoors!). Imagine two 40W mobile radios talking! I live in an urban area and was very surprised about the range and quality of this radio. This radio packs a punch! I plan on getting more of these radios to expand our use. If you’re a prepper, travel a lot, or just want some on the go radio fun you need to get this radio! If you’ve ever installed a CB in your car then you’ll know what to do. It installs the same way. Using the scan feature, I’ve found that there’s some channels with people talking so come join the radio community. Pros: Range, lots and lots of range! Voice quality. Features. Simple to learn. Easy to install if you’re CB radio savvy. Still easy either way. Works with other handheld and mobile GMRS radios even of different brands. Makes me not rely on a cell phone so much. Cons: The only thing I can say against it is even though it’ll work with other brands of GMRS radios, some of the features don’t carry over. I tested this radio with a Motorola Talkabout T460. Midland and Motorola use different privacy codes schemes with their radios. While using privacy codes from one brand or the other it hindered communication. But if I put them both on the same channel without privacy codes they worked perfectly. I’m not saying that this makes either radio bad but it’s something to make note of. I plan on getting Midland brand handhelds anyway so I can use all the privacy codes. I’ve looked up info on the internet that there’s some privacy codes that may work together but if you’re new to the radio community just play it safe and just go 100% Midland brand. (That’s my own opinion. Midland didn’t pay me to say that.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Functionality works great. Features are nice. The only issue I have with it is that it is only 35W, not the advertised 40W, according to my power meter. I would still buy the radio, but please note that it didn’t put out the rated power.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the few legal (FCC part 95) radios. I received this radio 2 weeks ago. It is temporally using a Tram 1170 UHF mag mount antenna. The SWR is at 1.1 to 1. (Previously tuned to GMRS frequencies. With the antenna centered on my roof. Ford f250. I was using it on Long Beach Wa. On low power I was consistently hitting a repeater in Astoria Or. I had tried it on medium pwr, 22 watts, but that was not necessary as long as I was on the the beach. This is a distance of approximately 20+ miles. I do not know the height of the repeater in Astoria. Hope this helps. Keith T.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great radio AND even better customer service!! I recently purchased the MXT400VP3 Bundle which included everything the I require to get going with my mobile GMRS radio. The quality is outstanding and the directions for use clear and simple. I'm completely satisfied with this radio; could not ask for better. Even more importantly, the customer service has been absolutely outstanding, and I'm certain that Midland will continue to provide the service and support I may require now and in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Midland thank you for finally creating a decent user friendly GMRS TYPE ACCEPTED radio. Seems to be sturdily built for a bit of rough handling just don’t get it wet. One improvement would be a software update to allow some storage of multiple repeaters with same frequency different power and tones. This would make my trips back to New York easier to switch back and forth same repeater freq different tones. Not going to reduce stars though. Good rig.

Is there any way to connect with a repeater using the MXT400 when the repeater has different input / output PL tones? I haven't figured out a way to do this.

Asked by: Chucks
The MXT400 does not support split privacy tones; to our knowledge, no GMRS (FCC part 95) certified radio does. What people are using, both to make these repeaters and to access them, are old LMR (part 90) radios that are allowed by the FCC to operate on GMRS frequencies, and those part 90 radios include programming options for having a different privacy tone for transmit and receive. This is becoming a frequent question and MidlandUSA techs are looking into programming changes to allow for this use in the future.

will the antenna from the 105 and the 115 work for the 400? what rating is the factory antenna rated for?

Asked by: WRAV269
Hello, the antenna for the 105 and 115 will not work for the 400. The antenna that comes with the 105 and 115 is factory programmed to work perfectly with those units straight out of the box. If you need a boost in range, we suggest picking up the 3bd or 6db gain antennas that can be found on our accessories page!

I purchased a mxt400 on Amazon and it seems to be missing the microphone mounting hardware. there is no bracket and the metal hardware on the back of the microphone is not like other microphones on CB radios I have had. Where can I get the hardware?

Asked by: Dave923
Hello, the MXT400 does not come with a mounting bracket for the microphone. The microphone is equipped with a metal ring, as shown in the product photo. This ring can be used to hang the microphone in various ways in your vehicle per your needs. You can also purchase a Mic-Bak.

I am interested in using this product as a “base station” inside our cabin to communicate with handhelds.  What do I need to purchase so that I can plug it into a wall socket for power?

Asked by: Rickjt
You would need an external power supply .The MXT 400 would require at least 15 amp 12v power supply. At this time Midland does not sell this as an accessory.

Does this act as a repeater for other radios OR can it just connect to a repeater itself? I'm new to all this stuff so sorry if it's a silly question. Are there handhelds that are repeater capable as well?

Asked by: NDLM
It can connect to a repeater itself but not to other radios. There are not any handheld radios currently on the market that are repeater capable.

Which one of your hand held radios would pair best with the MXT400 for distance and clarity

Asked by: sammike
A 5-Watt GMRS Radio would be best. Either the X-Talker T71VP3 or GXT1000.

What is the recommended antenna for the 40W radio?

Asked by: AddyATG
The Midland MXTA11 pulls 6dB of gain for 4x the power. Check it out, it's what I use for my MXT400.
