Each of the 2 channels can be programmed by the user to any of the 56 pre-stored frequencies.
Sub-audible QT tone & DQT digital codes mute undesired voice traffic audio and segregate user talk groups on shared frequencies or radio system. The user can pick any of the pre-stored channel settings — 39 QT tones and 83 DQT codes.
The ability to choose frequency and QT/DQT channel settings allows the ProTalk® to operate on the same channels and coded squelch tones as other UHF business radio brands. So choosing the KENWOOD ProTalk® XLS will not impact on any of your previous investments in radio equipment.
KENWOOD’s FleetSync® digital signaling system includes PTT ID digital ANI for instant radio call identification. FleetSync® also includes caller ID display and selective calling (Individual call, Group call and Broadcast call). Users can also set the alert tone (1-10, Off) for Individual call and Group/Broadcast call.
The large 4-digit 7-segment display makes it easy to check on both channel and signaling information. There is also a 3-level icon in the LCD to indicate how much battery power is left.
Scanning is a simple way to monitor multiple channels without manually searching.
