This kit has the essentials for the wildland firefighter who chooses the BK Radio KNG2 P150 series radio (typically US Forest Service and their contractors).
WHAT IS INCLUDED?
(Optional) Bendix King - KNG P - handheld portable two-way radio. This modern, light weight, feature rich, radio can go as long as you do with its extended battery life. The KNG P series is waterproof and designed to be BK tough, so it can handle all of the harsh environments you do.
(1) Miner Mic - AAKNGSPMMP3RE.2 - Aqua Speaker Mic. This waterproof speaker mic features a Hi/Lo volume switch and a grippy ergonomic design that makes it easy to operate even with wet gloves. Miner Mic also offers a 2 year warranty on their speaker mics, that is twice the warranty of any other speaker mic we sell.
(1) Big Boost - ANKNGWPBB18V - 18 Inch whip Big Boost antenna 2.1DB for perfect balance of range and price.
(2) BadAss - BAKNGCSBAR.2 - BadAss Red "AA" Battery Clamshell. Finding power to plug a charger into on a wildland incident is often a challenge, which is why the US Forest Service brings AA batteries for these clamshells. This is the most cost effective and often the most convenient way to go. We include two of these clamshells, because the USFS requires two power sources for your radio.
(1) 49er Communications - CAKNGL9ROK - Leather holster for the KNG P series handheld portable two-way radios, fits radios equipped with any battery, even the optional high capacity battery, or clamshells.
(1) Enable Programming option - While KNG P series radios are field programmable they do not come from the factory with the field programmable option turned on. If you buy a radio as part of this bundle we will turn on this feature for FREE.
