The Midland LXT118 radios give excellent range for 2-way communication


These radios are great to use while camping, backing up your RV, installing TV antennas or other activities where you need to communicate with another person who is out of your sight. When all normal services are down during disasters and other emergencies, you can use them to stay in touch. Kids just might like to play with them too.

They are compatible on all 22 channels with the Midland Base Camp Radio, operating on both the GMRS and FRS radio frequencies. Operation on FRS frequencies requires no license (GMRS frequencies require FCC licensing). The maximum range of 18 miles can only be achieved over water or direct line of sight under optimum conditions. We were able to make reasonable contact under unreasonable conditions at three miles away behind a hill. We have never used any two-way radios that worked this well before.

They use 3 AAA batteries or you can use an optional charger and AAA rechargeable batteries (not included). Other features include channel scan, auto squelch, mic and headphone jacks, battery life extender, keystroke tones, keypad lock and call alert. The 118s are also water resistant.

Package contains two (2) handheld radios with belt clips and owner's manual.

Weight: 3.2 oz. Size: 2.1" W x 5.5" H x 1.5" D.

great little radios
I picked mine up at ratshack yesterday, practical tests around the house were great. Even in a 150 year old building with crazy thick walls. I would recomend these to anyone looking for cheap short range communication.

  • This WiFi Antenna is hands down the best. It allows me to connect to a business almost a half mile away. Two months time and this baby paid for itself. I am a very happy with my purchase.
    — John A., Mill Valley, CA
  • This radio deserves five stars because it sounds great, the ease of use and preset stations. This radio will become your favorite radio, also backed by great customer service if ever needed, thank you very much.
    — Pete P., Santa Rosa, CA
  • This is an excellent internet radio. I have had the unit playing constantly from the time I received it. Excellent sound for such a small unit and the remote works wonderfully.
    — James H., Richmond, BC
  • Good sound, lightweight and comfortable; not too tight on the head. I like one feature; it doesn't tell you where to place the speakers, left side or right side.
    — Harry W., Manassas, VA
  • I purchase this product specifically for AM recordings and it has worked superbly. I wanted to wait awhile before I gave my opinion on the product. It has worded exactly as advertised and more.
    — Jack L., San Pedro, CA
  • Very nice, economical home lighting. If you're used to the white light of fluorescent bulb replacements, these will offer the same type with no toxic ingredients or damaging UV radiation.
    — Gary B., San Francisco, CA
  • This antenna does work well; however placement and the shape you have it bent into is very important. I live about 70 miles away from Toronto and receive a lot of Toronto FM stations static free with the FM reflect.
    — Thomas S., Buffalo, NY
  • I'm not sure how I gone this far in life without it. I just love it. The best sound ever from an AM radio.
    — James G., Springfield, MA
  • This device is awesome. As a contractor, I can not access my customer's network for security reasons. Now, with my office on the second floor, I can connect to a WiFi hotspot 1.5 miles away and my signal strength is strong!
    — Robert S., Tabernacle, NJ
  • I just received my EP radio yesterday. I'm totally impressed with the old school simplicity and the modern day sound quality. Thank you, C.Crane!
    — David C., Raleigh, NC
  • I have had only one, thank the lord, occasion to use this in and emergency situation and it worked flawlessly. Only one in the area with radio for two days of power loss... Thank you CCrane!!
    — Vernon P., Dufur, OR
  • This radio is totally fantastic!!! It will provide service in any condition and works as engineered and advertised. I am going to order more units for all family members.
    — Glen B., Bethlehem, PA
  • This radio is wonderful. Small but powerful. Several years of service and no problems.
    — William B., Litchfield, IL
  • Just received this little jewel... did not open the manual and I was listening to NPR within minutes... no kidding. I'm a radio guy and the audio is great and look forward to a lot of great listening.
