Lone worker function

When the radio is not operated for a preset period, the radio sounds a beep and requires you to push any button. If the radio is not operated for a preset time, an emergency signal automatically transmits and informs your co-worker that something may have happened to the individual worker.

Mode dependent scan

In the mode dependent setting, the scanning setting is dependent on the operating channel. When you change the operating channel, the scanning list automatically changes to the list set for that channel. It is convenient when you move to a different operating area and change an operating channel, you dont have to change the scanning setting.
