With a variety of Polaris Ranger Full-Size radios and radio kits, you're sure to find something to meet your UTV comm needs here at Everything Polaris Ranger. Some riders go with a dual-headset intercom and a Ham radio. The typical range of Ham radios on non-repeater channels is around 30 miles, while repeated channels allow users much greater range -- as much as 200 miles in wide-open areas covered with mountain-top repeaters. Although Ham radios have this advantage of using repeaters, they require a license to use, and most repeater operators aren't going to allow you to use their repeaters to chit chat on the trails. VHF radios are also popular. These types of radio signals travel several times further than things like CB radio signals -- which use amplitude modulated carrier frequencies -- but if you're using the marine channels on your VHF radio on land, just know that this is highly illegal and will likely land you in trouble if you get caught. UHF radios programmed to the 22 FRS GMRS channels are another option. You can get a license from the FCC for around $70 and it's good for 10 years. In the hills and more open terrain, you can expect a UHF radio to give you a range of about 3-7 miles.
Two-way radios for the Polaris Ranger Full-Size are another way to go about on-trail communication. There are many styles of handheld two-way radios, which can be used for bike-to-bike communication while you're driving, or toted along in a bag or on your person when you're away from your Ranger. Irrespective of the type of radio or radio kit you decide to go with, the kits you'll find here at Everything Polaris Ranger come with all the necessary parts and components to get your UTV communication system fully operational in less than an hour. Simply mount it up, wire it in, flip the switch, and you're good to go!
