UNIDEN Model uh089sx UHF CB Radio
Introduction
The Uniden uh089sx is designed to provide you with years of trouble free service. Its rugged
components and materials are capable of withstanding harsh environments. Please read this
Operating Manual carefully to ensure you gain the optimum performance of the unit
The citizen band radio service is licenced in Australia by ACMA Radio-communications
(Citizen Band Radio Stations) Class Licence and in New Zealand by MED General
User Licence for Citizen Band Radio and operation is subject to conditions contained in
those licenses.

=Volume Control with Power On/Off Switch
=VOX (Voice Activated Function)
=10 Steps VOX Mic sensitivity adjustment
Preventive Maintenance:
The following system checks should be made every six to twelve months:
= Check the Standing Wave Ratio (SWR).
= Inspect the tightness of all electrical connections.
= Inspect the antenna coaxial cable for wear or breaks on the shielding.
= Inspect the tightness of all screws and other mounting hardware.
Troubleshooting:
Should the unit malfunction or perform poorly, follow these procedures:
If the transceiver is completely inoperative: Check the power cord and fuse.
If there is trouble with receiving: Check the VOLUME control setting. Be sure the SQUELCH is
adjusted properly. Possibly the radio is over-squelched.
If there is trouble with transmitting: Check that the transmission line (coaxial cable) is securely
connected to the ANTENNA connector. Check that the antenna is fully extended for proper
operation. Check that all transmission line (coaxial cable) connections are secure and free of
corrosion.
Blackening may occur on the Liquid Crystal Display if the uh089sx has been
subjected to extreme high temperature (above 60°C) . This is not a fault. Normal LCD
operation resumes when the temperature stabilizes back to standard operating
operating condition (0-55°C).

Operation
Setting the Squelch
Turn the Unit ON by
rotating the volume control
clockwise. Turn the outer
ring of the control to adjust
the Squelch.
MENU
MON
ENTER
DCS/CTCSS
You must select a
channel which is not in use before setting the
SQUELCH control. (see below for "Selecting a Channel").
Think of the squelch
control as a gate. If you
turn Squelch fully
clockwise it raises the
'Squelch gate' so high that
no signals get through.
If you turn the Squelch
fully counterclockwise it
lowers the 'Squelch Gate'
to the extent that all
signals get through weak, medium and strong
signals and noise.
Monitor
To set the 'Squelch Gate'
to the desired level, turn
the squelch knob
counterclockwise until you
hear noise. Then carefully
turn the Squelch knob
clockwise until the noise
fades. Now only strong
signals get through.
Press MON to open the squelch and receive all weak
signals.
Press MON again momentarily to cancel.

Selecting a Channel
Turn the Rotary Channel Selector to
select the desired channel.
For your reference a list of the available
channels, corresponding frequencies and
guidelines for their use is printed on page
12. For Australia, Channels 05 and 35 are
reserved for Emergency Calls.

UNIDEN Model uh089sx UHF CB Radio
Operation
Transmitting
The uh089sx uses the 40 UHF-CB Channels (Channels
22 and 23 are for telemetry and telecommand
applications. Transmit is inhibited on these channels).
Select the desired channel. Press the microphone's PTT
button and speak normally into the microphone. Hold it
approx. 7cm from your mouth. Release the PTT button to
end the transmission and listen for a reply.
Call Function
Press the microphone Call Button. A two second ringing tone will be transmitted.
You may select from 2 types of tones (see p.10).
Current regulations require calling tones to be restricted to one transmission per
minute. If a second transmission is attempted within one minute then an error
tone will sound.
Using Repeater Channels
UHF CB repeaters are used to retransmit or relay your signal. Repeaters will extend
the range of your radio and overcome the shielding effect caused by solid
obstructions. In normal Simplex operation, your radio transmits on one particular
frequency and receives on that same frequency. If there is a barrier that partially
blocks your transmitted signal, the probability of another radio receiving the signal is
very slim. Hills, tall buildings, metallic structures,...etc tend to act as a screen between
radios.
Standard Operation without the aid of a
Repeater Station.
Operation with the aid of a Repeater
Station (Duplex).
The signal coming from your radio is received by the Repeater Station and the
re-transmitted at the same time on another channel. This operation is called
"Duplexing".
For example,
CH01 on Duplex Mode will Receive on CH01 but Transmit on CH31
CH02 on Duplex Mode will Receive on CH02 but Transmit on CH32 etc...
If you transmit on CH01 Duplex mode, you are actually transmitting on CH31 the
repeater station down-coverts your signal and retransmits on CH01.

Operation
Operating the uh089sx in Duplex Mode
For this example we are adopting CH01 as the channel being used in your area for
repeater use.
Press
to switch Duplex On.
If Duplex is not required - press
again to switch Duplex off.
Only channels 01 - 08 are
available for Duplex.
MON
DCS/CTCSS
Check with your local Retailer for
information on available repeaters.
Scanning
The uh089sx has a scanning feature that allows you to search for active channels
automatically.
Furthermore, the uh089sx is designed
to have two types of scanning; Open
Scanning (OS) and Group Scanning
(GS), to give you flexibility and allow
you to use the radio more effectively.
MON
Press
and Scanning starts.
The SCAN icon appears.
The scan direction can be changed
at any time by rotating the channel
selector left or right.
DCS/CTCSS
Open Scan (OS) Mode
Allows continuous scanning of all selected channels.
If an active channel is found, scanning will stop on that channel.
If the received signal ceases, the unit will wait 3
seconds for the signal to return, otherwise
scanning resumes.
To skip the active channel, press
momentarily. Scanning resumes. To deactivate
SCAN, press
or the PTT button on the microphone.
If SCAN is deactivated while on an active channel, the uh089sx will stay on
that active channel. If no channels are active, the uh089sx will reinstate the
starting channel.
OS Mode is indicated by the absence of the GS icon.

Operation
Group Scan (GS) Mode
Allows you to monitor a Priority (Instant) Channel
while scanning (Instant Priority channel see p. 11)
To use GS Mode Scanning, press
. GS icon appears on the display.
GS Scanning checks the Instant Priority Channel for activity regularly.
If the Priority Channel becomes
active the radio will stay on that
channel for as long as the signal is
present. If the received signal
ceases, Priority Scanning continues
after 3 seconds.
If scanning stops on a channel
which is not a Priority Channel,
uh089sx will continue monitoring
the Priority Channel for activity
while listening to the active one.
To deactivate SCAN, press the

If OS/GS Scanning is initiated when there are no channels programmed in
OS/GS memory, an error tone will be heard and scanning will not start (see
Programming Scan Channels - below).
