Expanded Signaling and Security Both radios provide a full range of signaling capabilities including 2-tone, 5-tone and MDC 1200 encode/decode for selective calling.
Private communication is supported by built-in voice inversion encryption. And, if a radio is ever lost or stolen, 5-tone remote stun/kill/revive can be activated to ensure messages are only heard by those intended.
Features Channel Announcement which loudly speaks the current channel description to simplify changing channels when focused on other tasks simultaneously.
Includes voice activation (VOX) that enables users to transmit voice without pressing the Push to Talk button on the microphone. Enables hands-free operation for convenience.
In noisy environments, activate the Clear Voice function to enhance audio transmit to ensure your message is heard. And, to ensure a radio is not accidentally turned down too low, a minimum volume limit can be programmed by your Dealer.
Whisper capability is also included to augment audio transmit when talking quietly is necessary for discreet communications.
Record and store up to 120 seconds for keeping an audible record of important messages using the optional DVS-8 Voice Storage unit.

When constant contact is required at all times, Vertex Standard’s exclusive Auto-Range Transpond System (ARTS) is also included to inform the user that another ARTS-equipped radios are within communication range.
