* This 80 channel narrowband radio communicates with 40 channel r adios on the first 40 channels (1 to 40) but has another 40 channels (41 to 80) which will communicate with new 80 channel narrowband radios. In total there are 75 useable Narrowband voice channels. Voice communications are prohibited on Channels 22 and 23 as they are used for Telemetry and Telecommand. Channels 61,62 and 63 are guard channels and are not available for use. Channel 5 and 35 (paired for Duplex repeaters) are emergency channels and should be used only in an emergency. The CTCSS and DCS function are not allowed to operate on these channels. A list of currently authorised channels can be obtained from the ACMA website in Australia and the MED website in New Zealand.
Q What are the black rubber washers for?
A The black rubber washers are to be placed between the radio and mounting bracket to provide resistance to movement but still allow the position of the radio to be adjusted.
Q I am transmitting on my radio and the other party can't hear me
A. If you are using channels 1 to 8 or 41 to 48 you could be transmitting in Duplex mode, turn DPX off or move to another channel
Q. How do I set the priority channel
A. To set the priority channel, select the channel you wish to use as the priority channel using the rotary channel select knob then press the menu button 4 times or until you see "PrI" on the display then turn channel select knob to select 'on' push and hold the menu button to save the setting When you briefly push the "ins" button on the microphone the priority channel is selected
Q.What is CTCSS?
A. CTCSS, or Continuous Tone Coded Squelching System, is an option that allows your UHF radio(s) to only pick up radio signals preceded by a "code". This option helps to cut down on unwanted radio chatter. This is also known as PL, Private Line, Channel Guard, etc.
Q. If the UHF Radio does not switch on at all
A. Check the power lead (wire harness) and fuse.
Q. What is the range of the UHF radio?
A. The type of antenna you use and where it is mounted on your vehicle will affect the range. A Low gain antenna will give you less range but wider coverage. A high gain antenna will give you greater range but it produces a narrower field which is more directional. Mounting the antenna low on the vehicle will shield the transmission in the directions close to the vehicle, so ideally the antenna needs to be mounted as high as possible.
Q. How far does a UHF radio transmit?
A. Many factors affect how far a UHFradio will transmit including power of the radio and the environment in which it's used (e.g. buildings, mountainous and surrounding vegetation can cause range problems).
Q. What is a Repeater?
A. A Repeater is a Radio Relay Station. It is used when the radio signal needs to be magnified to get the desired distance coverage. It works by receiving a radio signal from one unit, magnifying it and retransmitting the signal to another radio unit. It would be used in an area where coverage was hindered by terrain, buildings or other environmental conditions.
Q. Where are the repeater stations located?
A. There is a list of repeater stations across Australia. This list and the operational status of the repeaters can change so please check with the ACMA for the latest information on repeaters.
