Midland – MXT115 MicroMobile Review

Similar to the Midland MTX105, the MTX115 MicroMobile Two-Way Radio is compact measuring in at 1.4″H x 4.7″L x 4.3″W allowing it to mount easily in most modern Cars, SUV’s, Crossovers, etc. The radio is powered by an included 12v DC power adapter but can also be direct wired to the fuse panel and a chassis ground point or the vehicle battery if mounted in an automobile for mobile use or, you could also use this radio as a base station and power it off a 12v AC/DC Power Converter / Power Supply.

The Midland MXT115 is a good option for a Low to Medium power GMRS solution for everyday use around the Farm/Homestead, Neighborhood, around Town, out at Camp, or for Emergency Communications within a Neighborhood EmCom Radio Network. This unit would be good for emergency communications at the neighborhood or multi-neighborhood level as it has all 15 GMRS simplex channels at a maximum power output of 15 Watts making this radio a good option for a GMRS Fixed Station (Fixed Stations are limited to 15 Watts transmitter power output power and are allowed to operate on all 30 GMRS Channels), or would make a good medium to long range base station with the ability to also use the 8 repeater input channels. This still allows for higher effective radiated power (ERP) with the use of gain antennas such as the “Harvest BC200 450-470Mhz 6.5dBi 200W Tunable GMRS Base Antenna” or the “Comet CA-712EFC 460-470Mhz UHF Base Station Antenna w/Integral N Connector“. The MXT115 would not be suitable for communication on the 462MHz & 467MHz interstitial channels which are restricted to a maximum ERP of 5 watts.
