Give the Gift of Reliable Communication this Father’s Day with Motorola TALKABOUT® T9500XLR Two-Way Radios


This Father’s Day, Motorola (NYSE:MOT) offers the perfect gift for the adventurous dad that not only enables him to do the outdoor activities he enjoys, but helps keep him in touch with the people he loves at the same time. Motorola Talkabout® T9500XLR two-way radios, loaded with an array of features, are now available with extra benefits just in time for dad’s special day. With every purchase of T9500XLR radios, Motorola is offering two free Motorola earbuds with push-to-talk (PTT) microphones -- ideal for private, one-on-one conversations.

Powerful, Dependable Connections
The affordable T9500XLR two-way radios come with a variety of features to help keep dad in-touch and informed during expeditions and other outdoor activities. Lightweight and robust with rugged side grips, the compact T9500XLR radios are designed to support a range of up to 25 miles2 (under optimum conditions), offering dependable communication in remote areas not covered by cell phones. The radios are also equipped with Motorola’s new PTT power boost feature. When activated, this feature helps extend the transmission range by increasing the transmitter power output -- while helping to save battery life when no power boost is necessary.

Convenient, Rugged Features
While out in the field or simply at home, dad can receive NOAA weather alerts to warn of approaching severe weather. The Motorola T9500XLR radios feature 7 National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA)/Environment Canada and 4 marine weather channels to receive continuous broadcasts of local and regional updates.1

When in quiet environments, dad will appreciate the VibraCall™ feature, which silently alerts him to incoming transmissions by vibrating. Used in conjunction with the free PTT earbuds, dad can communicate in the outdoors without disturbing wildlife.
