BF-F8X3 Tri-Band Radio: 136-174mhz (VHF), 220-260mhz, 400-520.99mhz (UHF)
Simultaneous DisplayFor those that want to have the most information at their fingertips on a specific channel – they can synchronize the displays. You can configure the displays to synchronize and allow both the Channel Name and frequency to simultaneously display on the selected channel.
Simpler ScanningChannel Skip: Easily add or remove a channel from the scanning list.
Frequency Scanning: When scanning in the Frequency (VFO) Mode, you can easily enter in the range and frequency steps that you want to scan without scanning the full frequency band.
DTMF Remote CommandsThe BF-F8X3 Tri-Band can respond to remote commands. By remotely sending DTMF tones you can both ‘Stun’ (Transmit Disable) or ‘Kill’ (Disables all functions) the UV-5R Tri-Band. You also can ‘Revive’ a BF-F8X3 Tri-Band from its “stunned” or “killed” state. You can also remotely turn on the microphone through ‘Monitor’, or ensure the radio is within range by using ‘Inspect’ (replies with a confirmation tone when it is within range).
Dual Watch ReceiverThe UV-5R Tri-Band has one built-in receiver but can “watch” two channels (semi-duplex). Monitor two different frequencies (even on different bands (VHF/UHF)) and the radio will monitor both frequencies giving priority to the first station to receive an incoming call.
FM Broadcast StationYou can listen to the FM Broadcast radio, while still monitoring your radio frequencies in the background. Any incoming call will be given priority ensuring you never miss an important call while listening to the radio.
Group Tones supportedThe BF-F8X3 Tri-Band supports the most common Analog Tones. It supports CTCSS, DCS, and DTMF calling methods. Set-up your calling methods to call by group tones. Tone calling (private line) is required by most repeater applications and the BF-F8X3 Tri-Band supports the
