Connecting the Microphone
MIC Jack
Before connecting the Microphone Jack decide if you need to use the 2 metre
Extension Cable - simply connect the MIC plug into the jack end of the Extension
Cable
Push the MIC plug or Extension Cable plug into the MIC jack of the radio until the
connection locks into place. Gently tug the MIC or Extension Cable cord to test that the
connection is locked. Use the rubber cover which is on the cord to seal the MIC jack
entry from dust.
NOTE
Connect the Remote LCD Speaker MIC only to the microphone jack
nearest the end. The spare (covered) jack is for future expansion and
should not be used.
Disconnecting the MIC from the MIC Jack
Pull back the rubber cover and move it down along the cord. Using the flat blade of a
screwdriver or similar object carefully push the lock tab of the MIC plug towards the
MIC cord and at the same time tug on the MIC cord to draw back the MIC plug.

Mounting the MIC Hanger
The Microphone Hanger comes in two parts. How and where you mount the MIC
hanger will determine which parts to use.
Conventional Mounting with Screws

Locate a suitable mounting position and mark and drill two 3mm holes.
Fix the MIC Hanger into place with screws.
Conventional Mounting with Double Sided Tape
(not supplied)
High quality Double-Sided tape can be found at good retail stores.
Secure the front and back pieces of the MIC Hanger using the supplied binding screws.
Locate a suitable mounting position.
Apply high quality Double-Sided tape onto the flat area of the MIC Hanger
back piece and then press firmly to the mounting position.

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.

UHF CB Transceiver
Operation
Operation with the aid of a Repeater Station (Duplex).
The signal coming from your radio is received by the Repeater Station and the retransmitted 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-converts your signal and retransmits on CH01.

Operation - Special Features
Close Call™ RF Capture
The Close Call RF Capture feature sets the UH8080NB so it detects and then displays
the frequency of a nearby strong radio transmission. Close Call RF capture works great
for finding frequencies at venues such as malls and sporting events.
Close Call RF Capture doesn’t tune to a frequency to check for a transmission, instead
it directly detects the presence of a strong, nearby signal and instantly tunes to the
source’s frequency. The UH8080NB only tries to find Close Call transmissions from
400-520 MHz.
NOTE
• Close Call RF capture works well for locating the source of strong local
transmissions such as mobile and handheld two-way radios in areas
with no other strong transmission sources. However, if you are in an
area with many transmission sources (such as pager radio transmitters,
multi-use radio towers, traffic control devices, etc.), Close Call RF
capture might not find the transmission you are searching for, or it might
find a transmission other than the one you are searching for.
• Close Call works better with some types of transmissions than others.
It might not correctly display frequency information for transmitters
using a highly directive antenna (such as an amateur radio beam
antenna), if there are many transmitters operating at the same time in
the same area, or if the transmitter is a broadcast television station.

While in TSQ mode, when UH8080NB receives a code matching your Selcall ID, it will
perform the following operations:
a)Automatically responds to the caller by transmitting Acknowledge Tones.
b)Informs you that a caller is on the Channel by emitting a CALL ALARM
(Default Alarm Setting: four successive beeps in a regular interval for 10 seconds. Refer to p.40, ‘Alarm Mode’ for other alarm settings) and displays the CAL icon.
c)Flashes the TSQ icon for about 20 seconds allowing you to use the PTT button. If you are not able to respond within the 20 second period, TSQ icon stops flashing and ‘QUIET’ mode resumes.
NOTE
The UH8080NB can decode a Selcall call even though not in ‘QUIET’
mode.

Operation - Special Features
Scanning Tone Squelched Channels
If you are using two or more Channels in the TSQ mode, you can monitor all of these
Channels for selective calls by using the TSQ scanning feature.
To use this feature start the TSQ Scan by pressing and holding [TSQ] for 2 seconds
during Open Scan or Group Scan.
Unlike Normal Scanning, TSQ scans and checks detected signals for Selcall information.
If this information is not found, TSQ Scanning resumes.
When a call is received during TSQ Scanning, UH8080NB follows the same response as
when receiving a call on a Tone Squelch Channel. It differs only in the following ways:
1. If the call is not answered within 20 seconds, TSQ Scanning resumes.
The CAL icon remains on the LCD display.
To look for the Channel where the CALL is received.
a)Cancel TSQ Scanning by pressing [SCAN].
/
, browse through the TSQ Channels. The CAL indicator b)Using
marks the Channel where the Call is received.
2. When answered, TSQ Scanning is automatically deactivated. The Channel is removed from the QUIET Operating Mode.
To deactivate TSQ Scanning:
a)Press and hold [TSQ] for 2 seconds.
The unit returns to Normal Scanning Mode.
b)Press [SCAN].
The whole scanning operation is cleared.
c)When a Selcall is received, press PTT.
NOTE
The chance of receiving and decoding Selcalls effectively during TSQ
Scanning can be increased in many different ways. You can either
decrease the number of channels to be scanned thus increasing the
scanning speed – or – change some of the Selcall parameters (refer to
‘Selcall Programming’).

Group Calling
The UH8080NB has the capability to respond to Group Calling and to transmit Group
Calling Codes.
Group Calling allows you to call members of your group simultaneously. However, to do
this, you need to follow a certain format (see below) when programming your TX Selcall
ID.
Selcall ID Format
To call 10 radios 100 radios 1000 radios 10000 radios Transmitter SELCALL ID
[X] [X] [X] [X] [A]
[X] [X] [X] [A] [A]
[X] [X] [A] [A] [A]
[X] [A] [A] [A] [A]
where: [X] is a common Selcall ID prefix of your group
- and - [A] is the CCIR Assigned Group Tone Code
Example:
If one group comprises 10 members with Selcall IDs the ID numbers could be as follows:
Group ID # Individual ID#
[1] [2] [3] [4] [0]
[1] [2] [3] [4] [1]
[1] [2] [3] [4] [2]
[1] [2] [3] [4] [3]
to [1] [2] [3] [4] [9]
all in TSQ mode at CH20
If someone transmits ID 1234A on CH20, all of the above units will open their Tone
Squelched Receiver.
Group Calls and ordinary Selcalls can be differentiated in the following manner:
Group Call - Low tone beeps
Ordinary Selcall - High tone beeps

SELCALL Settings
Tone Period
Tone period is the duration of one tone in a Selcall ID sequence. The setting of this
parameter depends on the type of application. On long distance communications, for
example: where the signal strength of the transmitted information is greatly reduced and
affected by noise, it is advisable to use a longer Tone Period. A long Tone Period gives
the decoder more time and information to check and evaluate the code.
NOTE
However, be sure that all the radios in your group use the same Tone
Period setting. Otherwise you will not be able to selectively call one
another.
The UH8080NB allows you to select which Tone Period is best for you. The three most
commonly used tone settings (40,70 or 100 mSec) are available. With the freedom to
change this parameter, you can easily adapt to the existing system in your group
without the inconvenience of having the unit serviced by the dealer.
1.Power Off the UH8080NB.
2. Press and hold [POWER] and [MENU]. The SELCALL Settings Menu will display (no tone will sound).
3. Press [MENU] repeatedly to select the Tone Period setting - which is indicated on the display as Pd.
4. Press [SQL] to edit the setting. The current setting flashes.
5. Press
/
to select the desired tone period from 40ms, 70ms or 100ms.
6. Press [SQL] to exit the setting.
7. Press and hold [ENTER], to save and exit programming mode.
Lead-in Delay
Lead-in delay is a Selcall transmission parameter that ‘wakes-up’ and helps the receiver
of the other radio to lock onto the incoming signal. Each time a Selcall ID is transmitted,
the Lead-in Delay attaches itself to the beginning of the code sequence and causes the
transmitter to be on for a longer period prior to the code transmission. This makes for a
stronger communication link between the transmitter and the other receiver.
One major advantage to having the longer Lead-in Delay is when selectively calling
another radio via a repeater station. A longer Lead-in Delay helps to stabilise both the
communication link from your radio to the repeater station and from the repeater station
to the other radio.

6. Press [SQL] to exit the setting.
7. Press and hold [ENTER], to save and exit programming mode.
Lead-in Tone
The Lead-in Tone, when programmed, ‘rides’ on the Lead-in Delay.
Hence, when transmitting a Selcall ID, a continuous tone will be heard for the duration of
the Lead-in Delay. The main purpose of the Lead-in Tone is to increase the probability of
contact between your unit and another radio when TSQ Scanning.
1. Power Off the UH8080NB.
2. Press and hold [POWER] and [MENU]. The SELCALL Settings Menu will display (no tone will sound).

UHF-CB Channel Guidelines
Always listen on a channel (or observe the receive signal level meter) to
ensure it is not already being used before transmitting.
Channels 5 and 35 are used for emergency channels.
CTCSS, DCS, TSQ and SELCALL will not operate on these channels.
NOTE
Please follow these guidelines for channel use in Australia:
• Channels 05 and 35 are Emergency Channels.
• Channel 11 is a Calling Channel.
• Channels 22 and 23 are for telemetry and telecommand applications,
channels 61, 62 and 63 are for future use and TX is inhibited on these
channels.
General communication is accepted on all other channels with these
guidelines:
• Channel 40 - road channel (Australia).
• Channels 01-08 (and 31-38), and Channels 41-48 (and 71-78) are
repeater channels.
Important information - 80 Channel UHF-CB channel expansion
To provide all users additional channel capacity within the UHF-CB
Band. The ACMA will change the majority of the current wideband 40
channel use to narrowband channel use. This allows for additional
channels to be added, up to 80 Channels.
This simply means that the new narrowband radio you have purchased
will have more channels than older radios. Please refer to the guidelines
above and the channel chart for further channel information.
A list of currently authorised channels can also be obtained from the
ACMA website in Australia and the MBIE website in New Zealand.
Interference / Poor Audio
NOTE
When a new narrowband radio receives a signal from an older
wideband radio the speech may sound loud - however the radio’s builtin AVS (Automatic Volume Stabilizer) circuitry will detect and manage
incoming audio to comparable levels.
Narrowband radios operating on CH41 - CH80 may encounter
interference from a nearby wideband radios transmitting on high power
on an adjacent channel (frequency).
When an older wideband radio receives a signal from a new
narrowband radio the speech may sound quiet - the wideband radio
user simply adjusts their radio volume for best performance.
The above situations are not a fault of the radio but a symptom of mixed
wideband and narrowband radios in current use. It is expected that as
older wideband radios are phased out this issue will be eliminated.
