MicroMobile Two Way Radio is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 30.
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 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 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 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.

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 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 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 Good Value for a Part 95E certified GMRS radio We have had a pair of MXT400's for a week or so. They appear to have very sensitive receive capability. I have been able to pick up an individuals FRS (1/2 watt) Radio Shack wireless intercom from 28 miles and they only have a short antenna inside the house. The only concern is that you can only set the PL or DPL tones for both receive and transmit on the same tones. Some repeaters have different tones for input and output. The work around is to transmit the tone to open the repeater and use the open receive (no squelch) for receive.

Will a mic from a mxt105 work on the mxt400?

Asked by: Meaningdeer9137
Negative, they have different modular plugs and the wiring is different.

Will this radio work with a radial Larson om 450 antenna?

Asked by: Clint
Hey Clint, We would recommend an antenna tuned somewhere in the GMRS frequency set; it might work, but it’s not ideal. Of course, if it’s tunable, you can cut it and tune to it GMRS frequencies and it will work fine. But again we would suggest buy one already set for those frequencies! MidlandUSA

I am looking at the mxt 400 radio. I am curious if there is a way to do a PA setup like you can with a cb radio? Thanks!

Will Midland be updating the MicroMobile radios to meet the new GMRS channel allocations and/or data capability?

Asked by: Doogie63
The MicroMobile radios are currently able to access all of the channels (channels 1-7, 15-22, plus 8 repeater channels) allowed under FCC regulation on mobile radios with a detachable antenna. We may look to add data or GPS capability in a future MicroMobile radio if it is a feature that our customers continue to ask for!

If i have  2 handheld radios and their distances are not covered by the handheld range will the mxt 400 act as a repeaters for the 2 handhelds to communicate?

Asked by: mon 21
Unfortunately, no that is not how these radios function together. The MXT400 can access repeaters but cannot act as a repeater.

Is the MXT400 narrow band 12.5khz or wide band 20khz?

Asked by: PatY
The MXT400 is a GMRS radio, thus operates on 20kHz.

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!
