Question about Radio Communications
You do not mention the type of radio you have, so our answer will be rather generic. The "MON" button is the monitor button. It is used to temporarily shut off your interference eliminator (aka private line, PL, tone code), so you can hear if anyone else is speaking on your frequency. This is to be used as a courtesy to other radios users in your area which are on the same frequency. (Sadly, people are usually not so polite.) If your radio does not have the PL turned on, this button will do nothing, as you will already be hearing the radio traffic on your frequency.
On some models the "MON" button has both a long and a short press function, typically the short press is the temporary monitoring of the freq., while the long press is "sticky monitor" which will hold you in the monitor mode until pressed again, or the radio is turned off and then back on.
As for the other buttons, they can be programmed to a variety of options including high/low power, tight/loose squelch, scan/nuisance channel delete, battery indicator, volume set, and a few others. The only way to know for sure what it is programmed to is to have the radio readout by a dealer. Or an educated guess, as some would be obvious by their function.
