HQT TH-2900UV dual-band VHF/UHF handheld transceiver with 16 channel memory


Add to Cart:

The latest PMR business radio from HQT is aimed squarely at UK Light business licence users. Its unique selling point is its dual-band capability, so you don't have to choose between the three UHF frequencies and the seven VHF frequencies available to Light licence users - you can have both, a total of 10 frequencies, in a single handheld unit.

The TH-2900UV is a rugged 5 Watt handheld designed specifically for business use, with simple controls, a decent antenna and good build quality. An 1800 mAh battery means it should easily last for a day without recharging, and it uses the popular Kenwood two-pin plug standard for microphones, headsets and other ancillaries.

The TH-2900 is intended for use in shops, pubs, schools, clubs or any other situation requiring a robust handheld transceiver that is reliable and simple to operate.  It is also ideal for use by paragliding enthusiasts or motorcycling clubs.  It meets the IP54 standard for weather- and dust proofing, and its 16 memory channels can be easily programmed via the optional programming lead.

If you don't envisage changing frequencies once they are programmed into memory, simply advise us at time of purchase of the frequencies you want programmed into the radio and any CTCSS or DCS tone codes, and we will program the radio accordingly prior to shipment.

The radio is CE- and FCC-approved and ROHS compliant.  

A business radio licence is required to use the TH-2900, this can be obtained from Ofcom.  Costs start at £75 for five years, you can obtain further details and apply for a licence online on the Ofcom website
