The HT has five channels and 38 sub channels to help you communicate with other users. The M538-HT is powered by six rechargeable batteries (included) that will last for about 40 hours per charge. The HT is capable of communicating over distances of several miles.* The FCC also allows you to use MURS without a license. Although other radio services require a license, MURS is license-free.
When an alert signal is received from the MURS Alert™ transmitter, the HT will sound off with the voice alert signal, and will display an alert icon as a visual cue that an alert signal has been received. This has many different applications for small businesses, farmers, security guards or outdoorsmen. Anyone who needs to have real time monitoring and two-way voice communication will benefit from MURS.
