VX-260 portable radio features 

Enhanced Audio Output
Excellent Audio performance allows for better message clarity so you can be heard loud and clear in all situations. 

Expanded Interoperability
The VX-260 Series boasts abundant signaling options such as MDC1200®, FleetSync®, DTMF, 2-tone and 5-tone capabilities, providing seamless integration into a mixed fleet.

Safety Not Sacrificed
Emergency alert can be programmed to instantly notify help with a press of a button. Lone Worker is a built-in timer that requires the user to reset at a predetermined interval. If not reset, the radio automatically switches to Emergency mode to alert help. An ideal solution for supervisors to monitor the safety status of radio users working alone. VOX capable with accessory. 

Universal Battery System – One Size Fits All
The Universal Battery System for Vertex Standard portable radios takes energy interoperability to a new level by utilising a single charger base to support multiple radio series when used with designated UNI batteries. Eliminate equipment clutter and confusion by consolidating down to one battery and charging platform and increase your productivity.
