What is the range on this two way radio?
This two way radio can reach distances of up to 12km in an open space without obstructions. Range can be limited by obstructions like trees, buildings, hills, vehicles and even other people. How built up an area is will also affect the radio’s range. In open areas with obstructions such as trees and houses the unit will reach up to 4-6km and in heavily built up areas the range will be up to 1-2 km.
What frequencies does the two way radio use?
The G18 has eight PMR 446 channels and 91 preset channels so you should always find a clear channel. With no need for a licence or call plan this is a great alternative to mobile phones for keeping in touch. 50 CTCSS tones and 105 DCS codes give you loads of privacy combinations as well as a scrambler option. You can even use hands-free communications with voice activation transmissions.
How long can I use this radio for?
This radio’s 1600mAh battery gives you plenty of talk time. Get the maximum life out of your battery with the battery save function. Once your battery runs out just pop it in the desktop charger for four hours for a full recharge.
Optional programming software (not included) allows you customise the radio further – you can deactivate or change preset options like CTCSS codes, or activate other options such as a built-in FM radio and compander. Be aware that any attempt to change frequencies or output power of the radio can invalidate the licence-free approval.
