FAQ UHF300

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.

  1. Bogus five year warranty, as offered in store and on webpage. Review by J Kelly, of Marrara, Darwin.NT

    I purchased this product in 2012. It was great unit in my rig, till the MIC just packed it in. Now in July 2016, I rang Oricon customer support and after verifying my original purchase, I had to pay $40 for a new MIC to be posted up to me.
    Told the unit only has 3 years warranty and the store and the website have got it wrong. Not a happy trucker:( (Posted on 28/07/16)

    Replaced my old Uniden with this little radio. Great features for the price and good volume. Only negative is the handset, a bit larger than I would like and feels a bit 'cheap'.

    Can't really complain though when you look at the price and features (Posted on 20/05/16)

  5. An amazing little full-legal-powered two-way transceiver ...... Review by 1977 Was A Good Year ..... For Pirates

    This little radio amazes me. For something so tiny to do it's job so well still boggles my mind. I've been a CBer since 1977 (yep, I'm one of the original 'Pirates'), & I've never seen a CB sold in Australia as small as this one. And it works, quite well, as it turns out! The multi-function controls take a little while to master, but once you have mastered them, you realize that they are very logical in their operation. I have only one small negative comment - the audio output on my radio is a bit too bassy, with not quite enough treble, even when played through an accessory horn speaker. And that's it! All in all, a great little radio. Do yourself a favour ..... get one! (Posted on 6/07/14)
