Your RadioShack HTX-200 Mini Handheld Two-Meter FM Ama-
teur Transceiver is compact and lightweight, making it easy to
carry almost anywhere. The crystal controlled circuitry provides
accurate and stable frequency selection, making it an ideal
choice for your amateur communications needs.
Note: You must have a Technician Class or higher Amateur Ra-
dio Operator's License, and a call sign issued by the FCC, to le-
gally transmit using this transceiver. Transmitting without a
license carries heavy penalties. Getting a license is easier than
ever. See "Introduction to Amateur Radio" on Page 7 for more in-
Here are some of your transceiver's features.
Up To 2 Watt Output — the transceiver transmits at 200 mW out-
put when powered by internal alkaline batteries, or at 2 Watt out-
put when powered by an external 9-volt power source.
CTCSS (Continuous Tone Coded Squelch System) Subaudible
Tone — both encodes and decodes 47 subaudible tones to help
reduce interference from other nearby systems operating on the
Repeater Offset — lets you select the appropriate offset value to
match a local repeater.
Scan — the transceiver scans the frequency range and the mem-
ory locations for transmissions.
Power Save — conserves battery power when the transceiver is
not transmitting or receiving.
Programmable Frequency Steps — let you set the frequency
increment for tuning or scanning to 5, 10, 12.5, 15, 20, 25, 50 kHz,
or 1 MHz steps.
