Hold the power button down for a few seconds until it turns on. The power button has a symbol that looks like a circle with a line in the middle.

SOURCE: is there much of a difference in performance

Doubling Tx power, as you might suspect, doesn't double the transmit range.

As a rule of thumb. you should see about 1/3rd increase in range.

In practical terms, this doesn't usually give you something you didn't have before. it generally just "cleans up" the noisy signals at the fringe coverage areas.

Hope this helps,

I am considering a pair of your 36 mile 42 channel GMRS I want to find out if the 36 mile range is line of sight, or will they function in hilly and low mountain terrain? Thank you

line of sight. The 5 watt radios I service could not talk 36 miles. Those 2 watt units could never. They are Uhf and Uhf are more line of sight than Vhf. There are NO GMRS or FRS radios in Vhf. Buy the best GMRS radios you can. The difference is not power output, but a better receiver as you go up in price. You get what you pay for or there would only be one brand.

I pulled u uhf out of my vehicle and replaced it with a pro 520 xl uniden uhf but it won't work.

Check your electrical connections and your antenna set up first. Then if you still have a problem, check your mic/mic plug. Lastly, check your programming. If you have ignition sense programmed into the radio you will need to wire it accordingly, so it will sense the ignition of the vehicle.

Best regards.

Digitech uhf radio brand new I am in Sydney. Worked initially but since I've pushed a few buttons can't seem to receive anyone? (novice)

You have probably enabled CTCSS (tone squelch). Look at the controls and try to find the one that sets that value. Otherwise, check for a user manual.

W do I turn off squelch control on a digitech DC-1065 marine radio hand held 5 Watt

Hi David,

Before I try to give advice, I need more info.

I possess a Digitech DC1065 UHF 80 Channel CB hand held, so there seems to be some confusion here.

I live near Perth, Western Australia.

Firstly, How many channels does your radio have?

If the answer is 80, then what you have is a UHF CB, not a marine band radio.

Marine band is VHF with 87 Channels, in Australia that is, and the default channel is always 16.

Digitech are an Australian radio manufacturer, so you'll get great backup service.

If your radio is not defaulting to Ch16, then I am right about it being a UHF CB.

Therefore, it is useless for VHF anything, let alone Marine band.

I'm almost 100% sure this is a UHF CB in your possession.

Try this to prove me right please.

Reply to me with your Country and nearest city, I'll then be able to find a solution for you real quick, though I believe I already have.

Looking forward to your response.

Lpst my digitalk dc 1065 uhf radio user manual

Hi David,

Write this down and keep it safe: this site is currently offline during construction, but should be up and running within the next month or so. This site belongs to the Australian office of Digitech and based in Queensland, I managed to contact the office for a copy to be emailed to me, but only because I have a friend there was I able to do this on the understanding I don't give out his info on any forum, until their website is up and running.

Cheers, Peter@FixYa Team

Any programmable UHF 450-470MHz mobile radio could be programmed to the frequencies of the Spirit MU series radios.

Your radios are 2 watts, so you would probably want to stay with a 1-10 watt, or 10-25 watt mobile radio, to have the best success. The current compatible model for Motorola is the CM200 UHF radio. If you are looking at a used radio, just simply watch for it to be UHF 450-470 MHz.

Then when you are ready to have the mobile radio programmed, the dealer (or programmer) will need to know the settings of your MU radios. These are easily read out over the phone, or in person by an experienced programmer.

Radios comparable?

First, select the radio frequency band which would best suit your needs. (ie: VHF, UHF or 900 MHz) If you are talking in and around concrete and brick you would want to select the UHF or 900 MHz.

Second, with your frequency band chosen, narrow down the field of radios which have the features you like. (ie. number of channels, amount of wattage, text messaging, or plain jane, etc.)

Third, compare apples-to-apples. If you decide a 1 channel, 4 watt UHF radio would suit your needs, compare all brands with this criteria.

Fourth, look at the MIL SPECs of the radios you've selected. This will tell you much about their durability. (Some of the low cost radios will show up as lacking in this area.) The MIL SPECs are available for every radio on their product literature, and most likely on the internet.

Fifth, look at the size and weight of the unit. A radio might look great on paper, until you find out it is the size of a brick.

Sixth, look at repairability. Once your radio is out of warranty, is it repairable, and at what cost.

Seventh, look at battery, antenna and belt clip replacement costs. In two years you will need to be replacing those rechargeable batteries.

Hopefully, this will get you started. If you have questions, repost here, or talk to a radio dealer or two. IMHO most schools use UHF 4 watt models, or the newer 900 MHz (license-free) digital radios with success.
