The BC150/BC400 combines rugged construction with technologically advanced circuit design. The radio employs aluminum diecast for the frame and rear cover with water resistant gaskets layered along the case lids.

The latest circuit design permits the BC150 to be fully operational across the entire commercial band of 148-174MHz without any restrictions or degradation of performances.
100 channels with Scans, Priority, Timer and even TX power can be programmed through PC software as a matter of keyboard strokes.
Full range of options, including 5 tone, CTCSS, DTMF makes the BC range so versatile. Further, the BC are designed to extend its applications into the Trunking Systems.

The BC150 and BC400 answer your tomorrows needs today.
