  • Page 17: Adjusting The Squelch Level

    ■ Adjusting the Squelch Level Squelch is used to silence the speaker when no signals are present. When squelch is turned OFF, you will hear background noise from the speaker. When it is ON, you will not hear background noise. The squelch level you select determines when squelch will turn OFF and ON.

  • Page 18: Placing A Call

    ■ Placing a Call 1 Make sure no parties are currently transmitting on your selected channel. 2 Press the PTT switch and speak into the microphone in your normal speaking voice. • For best sound quality at the receiving station, hold the microphone approximately 1.5 inches (3 ~ 4 cm) from your mouth.

  • Page 19: Channel Scan

    CHANNEL SCAN Scan is useful for monitoring signals on the channels programmed on the transceiver. When scanning, the transceiver checks for a signal on each channel, and only stops on a channel if a signal is present. The transceiver will remain on a busy channel until the signal is no longer present.

  • Page 20: Priority Scan

    ■ Priority Scan If your dealer set up a priority channel on your transceiver, the transceiver will continuously monitor that channel while receiving a signal on another channel. When a signal is received on the Priority channel, the transceiver immediately switches to that channel.

This function turns the transceiver optional signalling OFF only when it receives the 2-tone signal that has been set up in your transceiver.

  • Page 31: 5-tone Signalling

    5-TONE SIGNALLING 5-Tone Signalling is either activated or deactivated by your dealer. 5-Tone Signalling only opens the squelch when the transceiver receives five tones corresponding to those set up in your transceiver. When the squelch opens, you will be able to hear the caller without any further action.

  • Page 32: Auxiliary Functions

Pressing the PTT switch while the channel is in use will cause your transceiver to emit an alert tone and transmission will be inhibited (you cannot transmit).

  • Page 34: Battery Voltage Level
