Thank you for purchasing the
RadioShack 22 Ch GMRS/FRS Twoway Radio. It provides short-range
voice radio communication to let
families and groups keep in touch with
each other on specific reserved
channels.
The radio is a lightweight, palm-sized
radio you can use to talk with another
person in the communication range (up
to 5 miles) who has a GMRS/FRS radio
set to the same frequency as yours.
Your radio has 22 channels and 38
different quiet codes, which you can
use to talk with another person who has
a GMRS or FRS radio set to the same
frequency as your radio. Your radio
also has auto-squelch, so you will not
hear anything on a channel unless
someone is transmitting nearby on the
same channel.
You can connect an optional speaker/
microphone and earphone to the radio
(neither supplied, available at your local
RadioShack store).
Your radio’s display has a backlight that
turns on for about 5 seconds when you
press any key except PTT.
3
Your radio’s other features include:
• Channel Scan — use to find other
GMRS/FRS users.
• Key Beep — each time you press
a key, except PTT or FUNC, the
radio beeps once.
• Vibrate — vibrates for 2 seconds
when receiving a signal if the radio
has been idle for more than 30
seconds.
• Voice Operated Transmission
(VOX) — enables standalone
usage and works with handsfree
accessory.
• Automatic Power Off — the radio
automatically turns off when the
radio is idle for 30, 60 or 90
minutes.
• Hi/Lo power selection — select
the transmit power 0.5W or 1.5W
for a GMRS channel.
• Courtesy Tone — at the end of
transmission, the radio (receiver
side) sounds a tone to confirm the
end of tramsmission.
• Direct Call — in the transmitter
you can select the receiver radio to
receive a call. In receiver, the radio
will receive the call that is
4
addressed to the radio and display
the transmitter ID number on the
LCD.
OPTIONAL
ACCESSORIES

data communication is based on the
same Channel and CTCSS code
setting. You cannot establish
communication if the Channel and
CTCSS code for both radios are not the
same. Ô
Direct Call data is sent when user
presses CALL. The radio transmits
Direct Call data to the desired radio.
At the same time, the other radio
checks the receiving Direct Call data at
the same Channel and CTCSS code. If
the Call ID number matches its Home
ID (Receiver ID number) or equivalent
Group Call, then it recognizes that the
call is addressed to this radio. As a
result, the receiver will display the
Sender ID number on the display and
generate a call melody. There are five
different call melodies to let the user
determine who is transmitting a call
(Please refer to the call melody note
later).
After Direct Call transmission is
completed, the radio (Transmitter and
Receiver) will change its CTCSS code
setting to Private code for 15 seconds.
The Private code is used to avoid
interruption from the original Channel
and CTCSS code. In the 15-second
period, both radios can only transmit
18
and receive voice messages at the
original Channel with Private Code.
Also, the ID icon on both radios flashes
on the display to indicate this 15second period. When conversation is
made within this period, the 15-second
time- out is extended for another 15
seconds. To exit the 15-second period,
press CALL or wait for the 15-second
time-out.
After a 15-second time out, both radios
are restored to their original settings
and the display reverts back to the
display without Direct Call function.
On the other hand, if you do not press
any key on the receiver after a Direct
Call is received, the radio’s display
continues showing the received ID
number and MISS ID (Missed ID) flashes
until you press any key (except FUNC).
Also, the radio generates a beep to
remind you that there is an incoming
call and it continues beeping once
every 10 minutes for a period 30
minutes.To stop the beeps, press any
key except FUNC.
