BTECH DMR-6X2 7-Watt Dual Band Two-Way Radio Product Review

This handheld dual-band radio, operating at VHF and UHF, stands out when it comes to the best survival radios.

This is due to its durability, as it is both water and dust resistant. It would make a great choice to use in any outdoor environment, and even in harsh weather. The battery can also last up to 35 hours on a single charge, which is useful for survival.

Another unique feature of this particular radio is its ‘Store and Forward Repeater’ mode. The radio’s built-in recording chip is used in this mode, and then the DMR-6X2 will store and forward conversations on the same band or as a cross band repeater. It uses this technology to record any incoming audio, and forward this audio to the assigned frequency once the signal drops.

You can also easily scan for channels with this radio. It offers up to 250 channels in a zone, and up to 4000 channels in the radio, allowing you to adjust your scanning bank by grouping scanning channels together. This feature gives you complete control over your channel lists, and you can customize the scanning to your liking.

Included with a purchase of this radio is the DMR-6X2’s free programming software. A programming cable is also included for ease of use, but bear in mind that the software is only Windows compatible.

It is worth considering your ability level when it comes to this radio, as it may not be the most beginner-friendly. Some customers have claimed that the manual does not assist well with set up, and the programming software is not the most straightforward.
