Cost Free Operation: No license fee or airtime charges, just drop in the supplied battery pack or 3 batteries and talk!

Internal Voice Operated Transmission (VOX): With the use of an appropriate headset, you can speak and listen to a radio conversation without having to use your hands.

38 CTCSS, Channel/CTCSS Scan: The radio will scan all channels when using a normal channel, and memory channels only when using memory channel. Auto Squelch: Four squelch levels available with level 1 the lowest and level 4 the highest. Higher squelch level avoids interference and noise from unwanted signals.

Monitor Function: Press monitor key to enable.

Voice Compression and Expansion: Crisp, clear and strong audio quality in virtually any noisy environment. Low level expansion allows further improvements in audio quality by reducing noise usually heard during pauses in conversations.

Roger Tone / Beep: Release PTT when conversation is over and receiver will hear the roger tone.

Time Out Timer (TOT): Limits the amount of time a user can continuously transmit on one channel. This allows for a more efficient use of the channel.

5 Different Call Tones: The user can select from five distinct call tones.

Communication Range Alarm: The radio beeps when the user is almost out of range.

Button Beep: This feature can be enable and disabled by the user.
