Squelch Level
- Squelch silences the receiver when there is no signal.
- UHF Sensitivity can be varied from .1 to .3 mV
- VHF Sensitivity is constant. 1 > 9 = .1 mV
- Level 0 = Open Squelch
- There is little difference between settings.
Level 5 is recommended.

 


0 > 9

1 STEP

Frequency Step
- Amount of frequency change when using Up/Down arrows or when scanning in VFO Mode.

2 TXP

Transmit Power
- Std UV5R - High = 4W Low = 1W
