Designed for Maximum Value for Users Who Count on Performance. The new VX-230 portable offers ample features in a cost competitive portable as well designed and built to meet 11 different Mil-Spec standards covering Mil-Std 810 C/D/E/F. The MIL-STD-810 series of standards are issued by the United States Army's Developmental Test Command, to specify various environmental tests to simulate conditions that the VX-230 will encounter in the field. This radio is a powerful and professional improvement compared to a traditional walkie talkie, standard FRS Talkabout, and other costumer-grade 2-way radios.

For smaller groups working remotely, the Talk Around Scan feature will monitor both the repeater input and output to determine if direct (talkaround) communication is reliable. If so, the radio will automatically switch to Talkaround mode to reduce unnecessary airtime through the repeater system.
