New Release – BTECH GMRS-V2

Wednesday, May 11, 2022

In 2017 BTECH revolutionized the GMRS world, offering the first advanced programmable GMRS radio, our GMRS-V1. The GMRS-V1 was one of the very first radios to update to the 2017 FCC standards allowing all 30 FRS/GMRS channels on a single GMRS radio – but the GMRS-V1 also added features never seen before in a GMRS radio including on-the-fly commercial programming, and the introduction of a VHF/UHF scanner channels combined into a GMRS radio.

Due to our innovation, these features are now common place in many GMRS radios. That is why today, we are excited to make another huge leap forward for GMRS enthusiasts with our GMRS-V2! The GMRS-V2 has received a major chipset revision from our previous groundbreaking GMRS-V1.

Highlights of the Upgrades to the GMRS-V2:

  • New in-house custom chipset and firmware
  • 200 fully customizable channels:
    • Quickly add GMRS or NOAA channels from an on-menu quick programming selection
    • Fully customize and arrange your channel list
    • Sort and add GMRS channels to any location; remove any unused pre-programmed channels
  • 5W full power output GMRS radio
  • New IP54 weather resistant upgrades

The GMRS-V2 also includes all of your favorite features from the GMRS-V1 including:

  • On-the-fly channel edits (tones, bandwidth, power)
  • Single or dual PTT programmable side-keys
  • Quickly remove nuisance channels from the scanning list
  • Master programming and deployment lockout to prevent programming tampering
  • Backward compatible with all GMRS-V1 and UV-82 accessories
  • Versatile Kenwood K1 accessory jack

Fully Customizable Channel Bank:

The GMRS-V2 has 200 completely programmable channels that you can arrange, modify, and use as: GMRS, NOAA, or Scanner channels. You can quickly add or remove multiple GMRS channels to any location, using our quick and easy on-board menus

5W Maximum Power & Changeable Antenna:

The GMRS-V2 has the maximum allowed power output of 5W. The GMRS-V2 uses a standard SMA female antenna, allowing for use with vehicle antennas such as the Nagoya UT-72G for GMRS use.

Dual Watch and Dual PTT:

The GMRS-V2 has one built-in receiver that can simultaneously monitor two channels (semi duplex). The radio chassis has two push-to-talk buttons, the upper PTT transmits on the upper display; while the lower PTT transmits to the lower display.

Want to keep it simple? The GMRS-V2 also offers synced display and single PTT modes to simply monitor a single channel as well.

      A programming cable is not required, but if you have any of our previous handheld radios – they use the same PC03 programming cable ($20)
