Motorola P1225
3 Versions to Ensure a Perfect Fit

Success in today’s marketplace depends on rapid response. To get the job done, you need reliable communication tools that connect you to the right people and resources – no matter where you are or when you need them. The best solutions offer all the features you need at a price you can afford. And that’s exactly what Motorola two-way radios and accessories give you.

At the touch of a button, Motorola two-way radios let you talk with one, ten, or one hundred people instantly – providing the individual and group communication you need to maximize productivity and meet your workplace demands. You won’t have to pay expensive monthly usage fees or sign service contracts. With the Motorola P1225 two-way portable radio you’ll enjoy more communication power.

The Radius P1225 Portable is available with 2 channels, 16 channels, and a 16 channel model with a LED display and DTMF keypad. The compact size and weight of the P1225 radio makes it easy to operate even with gloves on. All three models are ready for the upcoming FCC's Refarming Initiatives to increase spectrum efficiency and narrow channels to 12.5 kHz. With Motorola X-PAND technology, the audio quality of 12.5 kHz radios can actually out-perform what you could expect from 25 kHz radios. The Radius P1225 has channel spacing that is programmable by channel. This portable radio allows for economical, staged migration to the narrower bandwidth across your company's entire two-way inventory. X-PAND keeps a radio that's built to last 25 years from being obsolete in seven because you can switch to 12.5 kHz and preserve audio quality. X-PAND technology actually compresses your voice at transmission. At the receiving end, it expands it while simultaneously reducing extraneous noise. X-PAND technology at 12.5 kHz can actually out perform 25 kHz sound quality, available only in the Motorola Radius 1225 Series

The P1225 has the following additional features:

Programmable Option Buttons

  • Memory
    Like speed dialing on your phone, this stores often used phone numbers when the P1225 is equipped with a DTMF keypad
  • Monitor/Volume Set
    Monitor lets you hear other transmissions so you’re not interrupting. Volume set lets you change, set or
    Adjust the volume of your P1225 radio.
  • Repeater/Talkaround
    Talkaround can be programmed to a P1225 option button allowing you to circumvent a repeater and transmit and receive directly between other radios.

  • Tight/Loose Squelch
    Enhances reception for local or distance situations by selective muting.

Internal VOX
Allows hands-free operation of your P1225. When used with a headset, your hands are free to work because your voice and not the PTT button, activates transmission.

Battery Status Indicator
Uses both visual and audio signals. The Tx LED glows green, yellow or red to let you know the P1225 battery status at all times. A double beep at power up indicates the battery is fully charged.

6-Character Alphanumeric Display
