The walkie-talkie seems to be just a communication tool. In fact, if you want to be proficient in using, you still need to understand and learn some basic knowledge. In this way, you can handle some special situations yourself.

  • About walkie-talkie maintenance skills

1. After the walkie-talkie has been used for a long time, the buttons, control knobs and the case will easily become dirty. Use neutral detergent and a damp cloth to clean the case. The use of chemicals such as stain removers, alcohol,can cause damage to the surface and housing of the radio.

2. Handle the walkie-talkie with care, and do not move the walkie-talkie with the antenna.

3. When not using accessories such as headphones, please cover the dust cover (if equipped).

  •  What is a walkie-talkie C?

C (Continuous Digital Controlled Squelch System), continuous digital control squelch system, its function is the same as C, the difference is that it uses digital encoding as the condition for whether the mute is turned on.

  •  How to use the walkie-talkie to reduce radiation?

1. When the walkie-talkie is transmitting, keep the walkie-talkie in a vertical position and keep the microphone 2.5-5cm away from your mouth. When launching, keep the radio at least 2.5 cm from the head or body.

2. Do not turn on and off multiple times during operating, and adjust the volume to a volume suitable for your hearing.

  • How far is the talk distance of the walkie-talkie?

The conventional communication distance can be up to 8 to 10 kilometers in open spaces, and generally up to 3 to 5 kilometers in urban areas. In the case of tall buildings or mountains, the communication distance will be relatively short. When there is network support, the call range can reach dozens of kilometers.

Networking is to use a repeater station (also called a base station or a repeater station) to automatically receive the transmitted signal, and amplify and forward it. The network can cover a large communication range and extend the call distance. The open space can reach 10-20 kilometers (handheld) or even 30-50 kilometers (vehicle), and the building can cover basements, underground parking lots, fire escapes, etc. For the dead end area.

  •  How to deal with the flooded walkie-talkie?

1. The machine should be shut down immediately after entering the water, and the battery should be unplugged immediately;

2. Shake out the water forcefully and dry it in a ventilated and dry place;

3. Send it to the service center as soon as possible.

  • What is CTCS?

CTCS (Continuous Tone Controlled Squelch System), continuous voice control squelch system, commonly known as sub-audio, is a technology that adds frequencies below the audio frequency (67Hz-250.3Hz) to the audio signal and transmits together.

Because its frequency range is below standard audio, it is called sub-audio. After the interphone demodulates the received signal, the sub-audio signal is filtered, shaped, and input to the CPU, and compared with the C frequency set by the machine to determine whether to turn on mute or not.

  •  What is the battery using instruction?

1. Original or approved batteries should be used.

2. All batteries may cause damage or personal injury if metal conductors such as jewelry, keys or beads touch the exposed electrodes of the battery. Be careful with a charged battery, especially when putting it in a pocket, wallet, or other metal container.

3. Charging should be carried out in an environment of 5-40 degrees. If this temperature range is exceeded, the battery life will be affected and it may not be fully charged at the rated capacity.

  • How to maintain the battery of the walkie-talkie?

1. The first three charging times should be sufficient for 16 hours to reduce the memory function, and the subsequent charging time should be about 10 hours.

4. Do not leave the walkie-talkie and battery on the charger when not charging, as continuous charging will shorten the battery life.

5.The battery should be in an indoor environment of about 20 degrees Celsius if it possible, charging when the temperature is below 10 degrees Celsius will cause the electrolyte to leak and eventually become a barrier battery.

  • What are the main factors affecting the communication distance?

The main factors affecting the communication distance are the power of the radio station, the sensitivity of the radio station, the height of the antenna, the type of the antenna, the spectrum distribution of radio interference in the area, the relative position of tall buildings or metal objects and the antenna , topography and other environmental factors.

  •  Safety precautions for the use of walkie-talkies
  • When you on a car with an airbag, do not place the radio within the range that may be involved when the airbag deploys.
  • 2. In a potentially explosive atmosphere, electrical sparks can cause an explosion or fire.
