RT87 have an Ink screen, and the outpower is 5w, smaller and lighter than RT29, very suitable for Hunting or outing and Personal use, so we called it amateur Radio.


Secondly, we will take about digital IP67 Radios.

The biggest difference between digital walkie talkie and analog walkie talkie is that the common analog radio no need to be programmed, but digital walkie talkie need to be programmed.

Both RT50 AND RT81 have had no big screen, RT50 have a stealth screen, you can see the channel and electricity by it. Both of them are very strong for business use.
