Introducing the TX6160YTP Yellow

GME tx6160xytp Yellow CB Radio

Ideal for:

  • Mining
  • Road Control
  • Civil Construction
  • Engineering
  • Councils
  • Anyone who wants a set of Yellow 5 watt Handheld
  • Anywhere you need your UHF CB radio to stand out

The TX6160 is one of the best handhelds currently out on the market, and why is that?

Other than being a 5 watt handheld, it gets you a strong distance of coverage when in the flat fields usually anywhere from 8-12kms give or take depending on the environment and elements around you.

The TX6160 is designed to be bashed around (just don’t maliciously put a hammer to it). It has an IP67 rating, now what does that mean?

IP means Ingress Protection, and the first number relates to dust in this case it is a 6 and the second number is related to water in this case an 7.

From the chart below you will see what these ratings mean for the GME TX6160:

GME have recently released the TX6160 in a Yellow colour (TXT6160TYP) especially designed for commercial use, making it ideal in a Mine spec environment. It’s also great for civil construction, engineering, councils, or anywhere you need your UHF CB radio to stand out.

Yellow makes any item more visible and something as important as a communication device, especially in an emergency needs to stand out as to not confuse a person where their communications device is.

Imagine being in a mine site without a communications device. Mine sites are one place that you want to have a communications device!

The TX6160YTP comes in a twin pack, along with a rugged carry case to store the radios once you or your staff are done for the day.

Battery Life

The batteries last for up to 30 hours depending on how they are used, and as a backup you can always get extra batteries so you can easier switch the battery pack over in case the radio starts to get low on battery.

You also have a choice of keeping the TX6160YTP radio on charge in the vehicle with a 12V DC vehicle charger and/or put the TX6160YTP radio into the Twin desktop charger. Both the in vehicle charge and desktop charger come included in pack too.

Hands free

But what about hands free? GME have thought about that too. They have included 2 x IP67 (there is that rating again) waterproof speaker microphones (MC011) which attach to the TX6160YTP radio and can clip to your person, for example, on your shoulder or front pocket for easy access.

If the waterproof speaker microphones are not your thing, or you’re in a noisy environment, GME has also included 2 x ear-piece style microphones (HS015)

Is the TX6160YTP intrinsically safe?

Unfortunately not, if you plan on using the TX6160YTP in a gas environment or in an environment where a spark can cause a flame / fire the TX6160YTP is not the right radio for the job.

But for any other environment, the GME TX6160YTP will outperform in performance and durability.

Ideal for:
