microphone that is connected to your radio.

Mode:
Press the preprogrammed Repeater/Talkaround
button to toggle between Repeater Mode and

maximises receive radio range.
Local reduces interference from other radios in
close proximity and is typically used for base station
configurations.
Press the preprogrammed Local/Distance button
to toggle between Local and Distance mode.
Your radio can monitor multiple channels in a scan
list. Your dealer can program up to four different
channels into each scan list. When your radio
detects activity on a scan list channel, it will
automatically switch to that channel.

TALKBACK
SCAN
The Talkback feature allows you to respond to a
transmission while scanning. If transmission is
detected on a channel while scanning, the radio will

period of time after activity has ceased. This is
referred to as “hangtime”. During this hangtime you
may respond by pressing the PTT button.
Note: The LED scan indicator stops flashing while
the radio is in hangtime. If the PTT button is
not pressed, the radio reverts back to scan
after the preprogrammed hangtime.
DELETING A NUISANCE CHANNEL
Note: Your dealer must have preprogrammed a
button to Nuisance Delete to access this
feature.
If a channel continually generates unwanted calls or
noise (a “nuisance” channel), use the Scan button
to temporarily delete the channel from the scan list.
Note: You cannot delete a priority channel or the
last remaining channel in a scan list.
