Meant for close-range monitoring, pushing 6mW of RF and available in either UHF/VHF Bands.

This difference will not negatively impact the performance of this transmitter, the range will only be subdued by a minimal amount. If you require an audio surveillance transmitter that will be situated in a target location that is not abundant in obstacles, this is the transmitter for you. If you are expecting obstacles such as structures (man-made/natural) then the 14mW V1TX is a better fit.

    This is a permanent, always-on "hot-microphone", once the battery is inserted the CRTX1 will begin live transmission of ambient and surrounding audio without interruption on the Ultra High-Frequency band.

    Affordably priced and measuring in at 32x28mm fully mounted, with a thickness of .8mm and weighing less than 12 grams, this tiny audio transmitter still packs a powerful punch and pushes upwards of 6mW of RF power on the UHF band for up to 25-30 hours of continuous audio surveillance.

    The CTRX1 will broadcast audio over a distance of 100-300 meters in a cluttered urban environment, up to 500 meters with LOS, through concrete, drywall, and thick bush to any UHF receiver. It operates on a single button cell battery.

    Use this transmitter to remotely listen to an area of interest that requires discreet acoustic monitoring. We recommend any handheld UHF receiver capable of tuning into the 136MHz-174MHZ/400MHz-434MHz range, this is a standard range in most UHF receivers. Our recommended handheld receiver is the BAOFENG UV-5R. Your CRTX1 will arrive with its specific Tx/Rx frequency noted on its back.

    TINYTX's transmitters are easily paired with any compact hand-held transceiver. Any Two-Way UHF Radio will work, but we recommend the BaoFeng UV-5R from FengBros. Fengbros has been our trusted supplier for the last year, they offer certified Baofeng radios at the most competitive price.

    In order to maintain its longevity, the CRTX1 comes potted with a compound that seals all onboard components. Only the microphone and the battery terminal are accessible and made visible.

    Looking for something smaller and just as capable? The V3TX  is truly tiny, measuring only 13.9mm x 19.4mm x .8mm!
