As the FreeTalk® 477 logo indicates, this radio requires no license for use of all narrowband 80 CB channels including 16 repeater channels.
*For this function, you need to enable the CB channel mode in programming.
Commercial Channel Mode Ready
Hytera’s PD462 is more than just a CB capable radio. There are in total 256 channels. When CB channel mode is enabled, it still allows 176 channels (450-520 MHz) to be programmed. When CB channel mode disabled, it supports 256 programmable channels (450-520 MHz).
Users can manually enable, disable or modify the CTCSS/CDCSS function via the radio menu. It is a welcome feature when there is a lot of radio traffic. Where more than one user group are on the same channel, CTCSS filters out other users if they are using a different CTCSS tone or no CTCSS. This allows you to set up the radio so you only hear calls from your own group – everything else is ignored.
PD462 supports not only scanning in programmed list, but also functions below:
- Via programmed buttons, users can enable or disable this scan feature.
- From the displayed menu, users can also add or delete the channels in the scan list. So the noisy channel can be temporarily removed.
When working under a repeater, this function allows radio to communicate when the repeater is out of range or the repeater is down. Via the programmable button or the radio menu, the radio can use a receiving frequency to transmit. This allows the radio using simplex transmission and the radio in repeater mode to receive signal from the Talk Around operated radio.
