 The Mitex Site is durable, robust handheld two-way radio with the highest capacity battery in the Mitex range, giving you longer use between charges. It comes with a leather case for added protection and an audio port accessory protector to prevent accessory plug from being damaged in use. Designed initially for building sites and construction use, it's an ideal model for users in harsher environments such as Warehousing, Shotblasting, Sandblasting, Garages, Food Retail, Animal Care, Farming & Agriculture, landscaping and more.

Pre-Programmed to UHF1 Frequencies: 449.3125, 449.4000, 449.4750MHz

Pre-programmed channels mean you can use the radios straight from the box, all you have to do is complete the application form that comes in the box (or online RADIO APPLICATION) and pay the £75 fee which covers you for 5 years. Don't like filing in forms? Just add the application to your order and we'll process it for you - completely free of charge.

Because the range of a radio varies depending on the environment you use it in, we offer you the realistic expected range of:

  • Vehicles or Buildings - 1/2-1mile (Up to 1.5km)
  • Built-up Areas - 1-2miles (Up to 3km)
  • Wide open spaces - 3-5miles (Up to 8km)


1. This radio uses the popular business radio frequencies so you may experience interference from other users nearby. If you need more private or secure communications the Mitex General DMR model may be more suitable for your requirements.
2. If you want a different choice for a robust model then the Mitex General Xtreme or HD may be another option.

Does as it says on the tin.

Very good for the money!!

Having had a few different handsets now, these are the best for the money so far! The Mitex Site is actually a rebadged chinese radio, the SFE S880 to be exact. In fact all the Mitex radios are actually SFE units. But don't let that put you off!

The 'feel' of the 'Site' is nice, it is quite a lump though. The battery in mine (came as standard) is a 2200 mah. Couple that to the slightly bulkier, ip rated handset and you have a fair old lump of a radio! Superb! It is definitely not a toy, nor does it look like a toy radio!

The sound quality, although not as good as a TAIT handset, is still very very good for the price, especially when you consider the TAIT handsets are approximately 3 times the price. The range is terrain dependant of course, but I have reached distances of around 10 miles with fantastic signal/clarity - worth noting with out much in the way!

The other thing worth mentioning, if you browse around the SFE website, when you find the SFE S880 details, you may notice the transmit power listed on the website for a UHF handset is NOT 5 watts, it is in fact only 4 watts. The VHF version handset available in China is the 5 watt radio. I've not hooked up any sort of power meter to the Mitex Site, but I wouldn't be surpised if they were in fact 4 watts and not 5 as advertised.

People say that if you want to buy a longer antenna you need to buy it through Mitex UK - I promise you this is not the case! Take a look on the well known auction site (rhymes with flea-bay) and look for a Nagoya female SMA tuned whip antenna - delivered from china for a fraction of the price and its a better antenna.

I personally think that the 'Site' is the best model, rugged, ip rated, massive battery as standard, comes with desktop charger, and a case - all in for the price. Super.

Now, I would have scored it a 5/5, however the down side to the Mitex branded radios is that you struggle like a flippen hamster on a merry-go-round to find the software to re-program to different frequencies. I've not asked Mitex UK myself for a copy of the software, but I am lead to believe that they do not sell it, or give out copys of it. For me that would have been a real show stopper, however I have managed to get a hold of the software for the Mitex Site.

So, a great radio for the price! I will definitely buy another before to long - but ONLY because I have the software! If you're happy to buy the radio and use it as is on a license, then crack on and buy it! You won't be disappointed :)

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a detailed review. May I just advise that there is good reason the programming software is not readily available for this, nor any other make of licensed radio.

Firstly, the radio is manufactured for licensed application, so the power of the radio and the antenna results in the use of the radio being subject to communication laws across the UK (and internationally). You can’t just program any radio to license free frequencies and assume you’re using it legally. Secondly, programming the radio yourself, if you’re not an authorized dealer, voids all warranty. You can cause damage to the radio if you do not program the radio properly.

With regards to your comment that this is a rebranded SFE S880 – it is that ‘factory model’ but the Mitex model is manufactured with some different internal components and circuitry so it's not the same specification of the S880 and therefore the power output and functionality are different.
