Midland – MXT400 MicroMobile Review

Similar to the other MicroMobile’s by Midland, the “MTX400“, is highly compact for the amount of power it produces, measuring in at 1.6″H x 5.5″L x 7.3″W. This unit also has the largest backlit LCD display out of all the Radios in Midlands MicroMobile lineup making it very easy to read and a great option for GMRS Base and Mobile Stations that need or require long range on simplex but are still capable of operating through repeater stations. GMRS Base, Mobile, and Repeater Stations are allowed a maximum 50 Watts of transmitter power output and are allowed to operate on the 15 GMRS Simplex Channels and 8 Repeater pairs due to the high power output. You can further increase your 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 Midland MXT400 is a good option for everyday use around the Farm/Homestead, Neighborhood, around Town, out at Camp, or for Emergency Communications within a GMRS EmCom Radio Network. This unit would be good for emergency communications at the multi-neighborhood or regional level as it has all 15 GMRS simplex channels at a maximum power output of 40 Watts making this radio a good option for a GMRS mobile station a long range base station with the ability to also use the 8 repeater channels. The MXT400 would not be suitable for communication on the 462MHz & 467MHz interstitial channels which are restricted to a maximum ERP of 5 watts, or as fixed station’s which are restricted to 15 watts.
