What is scan and trap?
Ten times more powerful than PMR 446 units, this is a great radio if you have multiple channels that you use with different groups. This radio comes with scan and trap function, meaning it can scan to find the right channel, then further scan to the right CTCSS/DCS/DCI sub tone before saving these settings as a new channel. The clear display makes it easy to set up these channels. You will require a Business Radio Light Licence for use – one licence covers an unlimited number of handsets. The licence is just £75 for 5 years, and you can apply for one using the application form included in the box.* A great alternative to mobile or land line phones with wireless, free communication and can be used even in heavily built up areas.

How far can this radio transmit messages?
This PMR radio is capable of reaching their maximum distance of up to 25km in open country under ideal conditions. In built up areas and cities with obstacles between both handsets, the radio is still capable of up to 10km – perfect for work sites, motorbike convoys or even schools and universities. The Mitex Pro PMR broadcasts in the 400-470 MHz ultra-high frequency (UHF) range to get better signal at distance. It also has two different channel spans and steps to give you more options.

How many channels does this radio have?
This radio comes with 59 pre-programmed channels and 69 programmable channels, so you will never run out of channels. The radio comes with pre-programmed PMR 446 channels which cap the output to 0.5W and scan options for the business light channels, so you can connect to any of the Mitex PMR Pro radios. You can use optional voice activated transmission (VOX) for hands-free communications. The units also have a socket for a headset to use for more covert communications or just to cut down on outside noise.

The Mitex Pro Scan and Trap 5W Pro PMR are compatible with the Kenwood-style headsets. See our range of Mitex headsets and accessories here.

How long can I use this radio for?
With 8-10 hours of talk time, you should be able to use this Pro PMR radio for an entire work shift on a full charge. With its built-in lithium ion battery and individual chargers, you can charge the radio from any mains charger. The handset comes with belt clips and loop fasteners to secure your radios while you use them. The radio is pre-programmed and ready to use as soon as it is charged.

I bought two of these from maplin on the basis that I could program them from my PC. The instruction manual specifically refers to PC programming software on page 13. Where can I get the software from please?
