Motorola Housing Front Cover Guide

Motorola offer housing (front cover) kits for almost all of their portable and mobile two way radios. But it is an absolute minefield of part codes. For this guide we’ll concentrate on rehousing kits, that’s complete kits, not the components themselves.

This article is work in progress. If you have a radio not listed, email spares@radiotronics.co.uk wth your model of radio.

What’s the difference?

A two way radio housing kit from Motorola usually contains quite a few parts that makes changing the housing relatively simple.

Two Way Radio Range


One of the questions we get asked most frequently is:

What’s the range of your two way radios?

The problem with this question is that there are simply so many factors which can cause issues with radio communications signals. These include atmospheric conditions, obstructions such as buildings, condition of the two way radio battery and many other things.

Radio to Radio (Back to Back) – A Simple Answer

A simple answer is that portable radios are to be used for close range communications only. Some manufacturer’s state 5km, 10km etc. The reality is that would only be possible in ideal conditions with no obstacles and is unrealistic in the real world. So the best answer is when using two way radios in back to back (radio to radio) mode, you should expect no more than a mile or so in open land and no more than a couple of hundred meters in built up areas when outside; and no more than probably 100m when indoors.

Caveat with Licence Free radios: Licence Free two way radios (in the EU) transmit on 0.5w. Therefore regardless of line of sight, they may not produce enough power to give the radio signal enough energy to travel very far. Licensed two way radios, on the other hand, typically transmit between 4w and 5w. This is plenty of power to produce enough energy for the transmitted signal to be able to reach it’s maximum potential distance.

A More Detailed Answer – Line-Of-Sight

The fact is, there is a way to technically answer this question. But this is a technical answer and might be a little baffling for those who are not technically minded. Technical answers such as this rely on constants such as absolutely perfect and ideal circumstances and atmospheric conditions – which just do not exist in the real world.

Nevertheless, we can calculate the maximum theoretical range of a radio signal using a line-of-sight calculation which considers the curvature of the earth and presuming the earth to be a perfect sphere – which of course it is not. And this also assumes your radio signal is transmitted with sufficient power that is maintains enough energy to travel the distance.

The equation is:

  • horizon (km) = 3.57 x √ height (m)
  • horizon (mi) = 1.23 x √ height (feet)

The typically the height of an adult holding a portable radio when in use is 1.5 – 1.7m high. Let’s assume a typical height of 1.5m to be conservative.

  • √1.5m = 1.22474487139 x 3.57 = 4.37 km
  • √ 4.92126ft = 2.21837778568 x 1.23 = 2.72 miles

Using this theory, at 1.5m high, the point of the horizon is 2.72 miles (approx) which is the point where radio signals will unlikely be able to reach.

However, assuming that two users are both 2.71 miles (approx) either side of the horizon, in theory, given they are transmitting the signal with enough energy (watts), the very maximum distance you can achieve from a portable two way radio used back to back is 2.71 miles x 2 which is 5.42 miles. However, this is quite unrealistic. As mentioned above, atmospheric conditions, ionospheric absorption, and potential obstructions, will prevent this from likely ever being achievable.

For those even more technical, I agree that there could be a case to argue about diffraction and skip propagation etc. But for the purposes of this article, those points are not covered here.

Vertex Standard Universal / Legacy Battery Reference Chart

Vertex Standard have completely replaced all their batteries with the all new Universal Range.

This means, in a nutshell, that now all Vertex Standard batteries can be charged in the CD-58 charger. This is great as no matter what Vertex Standard radio you buy, they all use the same “universal” charger. But this only applies to the latest version of batteries. The bad news is that if you buy a new “universal series” battery, you’ll also need to upgrade your charger to a CD-58 charging pod with either a PA-55U (UK) or PA-55C (EU) power supply.

Finding the right new universal battery for your old radio can prove challenging. So we’ve created this handy chart. If your battery is missing from this chart it just means there’s no direct replacement battery.

Motorola UK & EMEA / USA Equivalents

Motorola GP340Motorola Solutions have different model radios in the UK, Europe & East Africa (EMEA) to the models they have in the USA.

Whilst the USA models are not exactly the same, they’re pretty much identical in most physical characteristics.

We have put together a handy little chart to cross reference equivalent table.

Here’s the complete list of batteries and chargers for the CP040 and DP1400. Current models are shown at the top and discontinued models are shown below.

Kenwood TK-3201 Batteries & Chargers Explained

Kenwood TK-3201The Kenwood TK-3201, by a long stretch, was one of the best selling “licence free” business-grade two way radios ever made. But when buying batteries there’s a big gotcha and many people buy the incorrect battery. So, what’s the gotacha?

The Kenwood TK-3201T was originally released with a KNB-29N or KNB-53N nickel-metal hydride battery or a KNB-30A Nickel-Cadmium battery; and a KSC-31 charger, which is only capable of charging a Nickel Metal Hydride or a Nickel-Cadmium battery.

Then, because the industry was moving more and more in the direction of Lithium-Ion batteries, Kenwood re-released the Kenwood TK-2301 now as the TK-2301T2 (which meant 2nd generation, not MK2). The T2 generation version was supplied with a KNB-45L lithium-ion battery. The KNB-45L battery has the same radio fitting profile as the old batteries so it will fit a TK2301. However, Kenwood was forced to change the charge profile and so needed to introduce a new charger that was lithium battery compatible.

Therefore to find the correct Kenwood TK-2301 battery, you need to check your charger model and your radio model, not just the radio itself.

New Dual-Profile Charger Released

Kenwood has released the KSC-43 charger which is able to charge both the 1st generation Ni-Cd and NiMH, and 2nd generation Li-Ion batteries as it has a dual charging profile. If you have a fleet of TK2301 and you have some with KNB-29N/KSC-31 and some with KNB-45L/KSC-35S charger, we recommend you only buy the KSC-43 charger to cover all bases.

Trivia: The Kenwood TK-2301 is a discontinued radio and was eventually replaced with the TK-3301. The TK-3301 takes the KNB-45L lithium battery and the KSC-35S charger. TK-3301 has also now been replaced with the Kenwood TK-3501. The TK-3501 takes an entirely new battery, but does fit the KSC-35S charger.
