Anyone from a small child to someone who is completely unfamiliar with electronics can easily plug in the battery pack on this unit and learn to use it immediately, often without even having to consult the owner’s manual. The plug and play design allows ease of use, compatibility, and a high functionality which is hard to beat.
Included with the Midland LXT560VP3 is the following:
- 2 radios
- 2 belt clips
- 2 NiMH battery packs
- 1 desktop charger
- 1 AC adapter
- Owner’s manual
The 26 mile range and the whopping 37 available communication channels that come standard on this unit means that, at least for moderate distances, you won’t ever have to worry about being out of communication with your friends and family. Range is good in a variety of situations, but is best in open areas and over open water. Flat terrain is also a benefit when trying to lengthen the range. NOAA weather alerts are also included, automatically locking on to your local weather stations to keep you apprised of any important information regarding the weather situation in your area.
The LXT560VP3 comes with a rechargeable battery pack that can be charged either through the use of the AC adapter which has been included or the desktop charger. Either of these will charge the battery pack in a very short amount of time, allowing you to use the radios again quickly. If that isn’t enough, you can also use loose batteries in place of the battery packs. This is a feature which is especially useful when you find yourself out in the field running low on battery power. Just pack some extra batteries and you will never have to worry about running out of energy in the field again. Speaking of low batter power, the battery level meter which is included on the display of these radios is right and will begin to flash when the batteries are low, ensuring that you are never caught unaware when in the field.
The addition of eVOX functionality on the LXT560 allows you to use the units without the use of your hands. Anyone who has ever been in the field trying to hold things and work while using their radios at the same times knows what a difficult task that can be. With the LXT560, it is no problem at all. Even better, you can use headsets (not included) with the unit should you so choose, further extending the hands free capability that it has.
Communication is a vital resource in the modern age. There are simply too many dangers out there in the world to run the risk of not being able to communicate during a time of crisis. Having the LXT560 by your side will ensure that you, your friends, your family, and your neighbors are all safe and able to maintain a steady line of communication with each other without having to worry about whether there is power of infrastructure. Whether you are in your home or out in the field, the LXT560 will provide you with a reliable means of crystal clear communication so that you can stay in touch with the people who matter to you the most.
