Instructions on how to change channels on TECHNIKA MODEL TA-13
Basic Instructions for Technika Model TA-13
On this model there are 7 buttons:
Left to Right these are:
PTT, Push to talk on lh side as screen faces you.
Torch Light (on rh side)
Assuming you have used the power button to turn on the radio, the default channel after installing the batteries is 1 or else the last channel to be used.
Press the power/menu button once-briefly, (the current channel will flash for about 10 seconds.) Then use the Up and Down arrows to change channel. Wait for the remaining few seconds and the radio will return to normal operation.
Press the menu button twice, the letter H or L will appear and can be altered by the Up and Down keys to change the power level of the radio. I think this is transmit power which may help you avoid infuriating local taxi companies. Switch back to High power when you're about to go out for the night and need a ride.
Press the menu button three times. This will turn off Squelch control and make a terrible din. Not terribly useful unless you want to pick up a really weak signal (or find out where the taxi driver has taken your neighbour.)
An easy way of finding a channel is to press and hold the Scan button and then the device will rotate through the available channels looking for a signal. When someone transmits, the scan will pause and you can capture it by pressing the PTT button for a second or two. I have found this helpful in pairing my radios with other sets, or picking out channels that work with friend's radios.
Finally, Volume control is really simple, just up and down when not in any other mode.
I had the instructions, which I think included a mention of all available channels I'll scan and post them if ever I find them. hope this part helps though.
