NOTES FOR GOOD COMMUNICATION
1 . The GMRS-1545 15 channels are shared on a ‘take turns’ basis. This
means other groups may be talking on any of the channels. A
common code of ethics/courtesy is to switch to another vacant
channel and not to attempt to talk over someone who is already using
the channel you first selected.
2. The GMRS-1545 has been designed to maximize performance and
improve transmission range in the field. To avoid interference, it is
recommended that you do not use the units closer than 5 feet apart.
3. For best transmission results, always keep your mouth about 2-3
inches from the microphone (10) and speak slowly in a normal voice.
4. To increase battery life, avoid features such as Scan, Dual Watch and
Weather Alert. These features will reduce operating time
considerably.
