Mobile UHF Radios -

Trade Secrets: Well I suppose I shouldn't call it's a Trade Secret, but the following info is something you're never told by virtually any dealer - Why, I hear you say? The answer is simple, purely because they don't know - The following info was written by Doug Taylor, qualified technician of 42 years

Firstly, the performance between any two radios is governed by 2 factors - 1, Transmit Power and 2 (and much more important) The Receive Sensitivity. Let's deal with one factor at a time.

'Transmit Power' - well that's pretty standard with all radios, 5 Watts is maximum power output by Law and all radios are 5 Watts, so that's pretty equal.

Now for the Receive Sensitivity, this is where all radios are NOT the same, and this is where dramatic differences in performance can occur between different models and brands of radios. - Now without really bogging you down with technical guff and get totally lost, I'll summarise by saying that Lakecomm have come up with a unique and 'exclusive' coding system to help assist you in buying only the best in reliability and PERFORMANCE - Remember if a radio is cheaper there's probably a reason why it is!

When browsing our website look for this symbol. We call it our 'P' Tick, which will guarantee you that the performance of this particular product is the best available in todays current market - So if buying from elsewhere ask them to inform you of the specifications (that's if they can) -
Please note, in regards to UHF CB Radio, ONLY Icom and GME conform to 'P' Tick

You will also see another logo MIL-STD810. This logo represents any units that conform to Military Specification Standards. It indicates that the radio is 'Ruggedised' to a standard suitable for Military use, to which you can be assured is the highest standard in the world
