Q. What is the range of the radio?
A. The range will depend on a few things. The type of antenna you use and where it is mounted on the vehicle will affect the range. Low gain antenna will give you less range but wider coverage, A high gain antenna will give you greater range but it is produces a narrower field which is more directional. Mounting the antenna low on the vehicle will shield the transmission in the directions close to the vehicle, so ideally the antenna needs to be mounted as high and as possible.
Q. When I am receiving a transmission, the display shows that I am receiving a signal but I cannot hear anything, why?
A. Firstly check, your volume control, then if you still cannot hear the transmission, check to see if you have a CTCSS or DCS code set on that channel, if you do you will only be able to hear transmissions from other radios that have that same code set. If you turn off any CTCSS or DCS codes you will be able to hear all transmissions on that channel.
Q. When I am transmitting the person I am transmitting to cannot hear me, why?
A. Check that you are both on the same channel and both have the same CTCSS or DCS codes set. Also check that if you have duplex mode enabled that the other party has duplex enabled also.
