ARROYO GRANDE, California (October 2, 2017) – More horsepower. Bigger engines. Faster speeds. For everyone who appreciates bigger and better, Rugged Radios is excited to announce the new RM100-V 100 Watt VHF Mobile Radio. This remarkable radio boasts a full 100 watts of power to reach distances up to 50 miles on your favorite VHF channels.
The new RM100-V is sure to rise to the top of the desert racing scene where communications are key over long distances. Not only does this radio pack some serious power, but it does so in a small compact unit that is significantly lighter and requires less amp draw than the old, big-box 100 watt radios of the past. It is easy to mount in any UTV, Desert Truck, or Buggy and being the same size as the 60-watt RM60-V leaves you just a few screws and a couple of wires away from upgrading to 40 more watts of power.
Packed with features that will make your off-road trips more enjoyable, the RM100-V comes pre-programmed with our favorite off-road channels and has the ability to hold up to 200 channels. The digital display will have your 4 favorite channels readily available at the press of a button and is bright enough to operate well into the night hours.
