Incredibly small size, light weight, but with great indicators! Provides up to 6W output power, 6/5/2. 5/1W four-speed adjustable power. It can be powered by a self-contained lithium battery, an external 13.8V DC power supply, or an FBA-28 battery box.
Multi-function LCD display
The multi-function LCD screen has three lighting backlight colors: blue, amber, and purple, and can also be turned off manually to save power. A large amount of information such as graphic bar output power, ALC voltage, SWR, modulation level, etc. can be easily read on the front panel.
Easy installation with dual antenna interface
The front panel is equipped with a BNC interface, which can be connected to a rubber antenna or a VHF/UHF curved antenna. The rear panel provides a universal M (S0-239) interface, which makes the antenna installation operation easier.
Built-in high stability TCXO
Using the newly designed TCXO temperature compensation crystal, even in the operating environment of -10°C to +60°C, the frequency stability can be guaranteed at ±0.5ppm.
Voice control (vox) control
The voice control launch (vox) system can control the walkie-talkie to automatically switch between transmitting and receiving according to whether the microphone has voice input. After enabling the VoX function, you no longer need to press the PTT button to transmit signals.
