About Motorola MTM5500

Besides sharing specifications with the best-seller MTM5400 this flagship model can be controlled from two separate control heads. These can be placed up to forty metres from the radio i.e. up to eighty from each other. This can be useful on board ships, trains or other longer vehicles.


The radio also has a telephone style control head available, reminiscent of a classic car phone. It can be used either as a “telephone” when communicating in duplex or as a microphone for simplex calls. But it is also designed to look like an ordinary control head with button, screen and knobs on the same places. This increases familiarity for experienced user and allows installation both horizontally and vertically.

Hear and get heard even in noisy environments with powerful and crystal clear audio and keep in contact thanks to best-in-class receiver characteristics.


Flexible installations provide optimized solutions for more users. For instance, the waterproof control head allows for installation directly on exposed places like a motorcycle or on a boat.


TETRA Enhanced Data Service (TEDS) enables transfers of “heavier” files like images, recordings, etc directly via TETRA. The new protocol can increase data transfer rates up to twenty times compared to standard.
