Ohio Valley 2-Way Radio, an Authorized Motorola Communications Dealer was established in 1982 after a division of West Kentucky 2-Way Radio located in Central City, Kentucky. The initial service area included the counties of Daviess, Hancock, Henderson & Union in northwestern Kentucky and the Indiana counties of Spencer & Perry.

Over the years additional adjoining counties have been added with our representation as a Manufacturer’s Representative (MR) which provided the opportunity to expand our service area towards the southwestern portion of Kentucky.

The continued growth of Ohio Valley 2-Way Radio allowed the purchase in 2006 of local competitive radio communications dealers  Smith Communications in Owensboro and later in 2010 Commercial Radio in Henderson, Kentucky.

In 1982 upon the establishment of Ohio Valley 2-Way Radio, Larry Brown was selected as the General Manager a position which continued until 1987 at which time Larry purchased the business. Ohio Valley 2-Way Radio relocated a few years thereafter to their present location today at 2035 East Parrish Avenue, Owensboro, Kentucky.

Ohio Valley 2-Way Radio serves customers in a wide variety of businesses  and industries including Public Safety, Construction, Manufacturing, Education, Medical, etc. With the ever expanding Motorola product line the possibilities are endless and Ohio Valley 2-Way Radio is here to assist our customers in continuing to meet their communications needs.
