To turn on the radio, rotate the top knob.  This also adjusts the volume.  You will see Channel One in the window.








The Up-Down arrows on the left side of the face will select the channel. 


Channel One is Pelican Bay     


Channel Eight is Vista Pointe, the channel that we use for Meetings-On-Air.









The grey button of the side of the radio is the PTT (Push To Talk) button.  Depress, wait a second, then start speaking into the face of the radio about 3 to 4 inches from your mouth.

Hold the button down while you speak.  Say “over” and then let the button up.





Across the top of the Keypad, there are 4 buttons, PO,P1,P2 and P3.  


PO (when pressed) toggles the “Talk-around switch on and off.  When on, this allows you to “Talk-around” or talk without the repeater. Only radios close to you will be able to talk with you.




P1 (when toggled on) scans all channels.

P2 (when toggled on) gives a number indicating battery strength.

P3 We do not use.
