CP185 Radio Features


This 16-channel radio is able to handle communication for most organizations due to its Multi-Channel capability, allowing Employees to communicate with each other without disrupting the main communication channel. The CP185 can help make your organization more productive, help your team communicate more clearly, and assist you in raising the bar!


This radio also offers adjustable power options, with VHF: 5W & UHF:4W, to help you extend battery life. Keeping you fully connected throughout your entire work shift.


Audio performance features on two-way radios are important to pay attention to. Sometimes you may not be in an environment or situation where you can afford to "not hear" the last communication. This is why Motorola took the time to design the CP185 with above average audio, such as X-pand technology, to provide clear, crisp, and loud transmissions to your ears so you don't have to second guess. If your hands are busy when you receive a call, just turn on VOX for hands-free communication. The sound performance and audio in the CP185 was engineered well above average.


The CP185 is great for organizations that currently use repeaters or are considering them for the future. They were designed for use with both repeater systems, to provide increased range & coverage, and for simple radio-to-radio communications.
