Is this capable of receiving and transmitting on the Airband frequency range. Also can we store frequencies in channel banks and then scan through them?

Asked by: Pilot
Yes you can store frequencies and scan through them, but you cannot transmit on air band you would need an air band transceiver for that.  Hope this helps.
