Detailed Information

Midland GB1 is the world's FIRST PMR446 mobile in-car radio. Supplied with everything you need to use the radio including microphone, magnetic mag mount antenna, bracket/screws and power supply cable. Acts, looks and behaves almost like a CB radio, but working on the licence free PMR446 channels so can be used with all PMR446 compatible walkie-talkie radios.

Midland GB1 is microprocessor‐controlled so that it does not deviate off frequency and busy channel lockout - ideal for avoiding other busy channels. GB1 has a really bright and clear LED display which can be "flipped" around so that you can mount the Midland GB1 with the speaker facing up or down. The GB1 has adjustable squelch on 9 levels and has a channel scan feature which is ideal when you're working on multiple channels.

A great feature of the Midland GB1 is the side tone, which is a noise blanker for when you release the PTT button on the microphone.
