The MTP8000Ex series two-way radio addresses the unique conditions present in firefighting, petroleum and other hazardous, explosion prone environments while offering superior audio, battery life, coverage and ergonomics. The T-shape profile, exaggerated control knob, enlarged keys, large color display and secondary top display offer purpose-built, “glove-able” functionality.
