FRS Walkie Talkies — The FRS-B1 are license free FRS walkie talkies programmed with all 22 FRS channels used by FRS radios. All 22 FRS Channels are pre-programmed and able to be customized for your unique application needs. The radios support all 260 DCS and CTCSS privacy tones (up to 5720 channel combinations) making them compatible with any other FRS radio. The FRS-B1 allows quick monitoring of all traffic on a channel with the monitor key, and also includes a built-in flashlight.
- Rugged and Versatile — The FRS-B1 is IP54 weather resistant, meaning it can reasonably be used in all weather situations. The FRS-B1 is versatile with the included holster which allows the radio to quickly snap into a locked position in a pocket or on a belt. There are multiple charging options as well; the radios can be charged easily with any USB-C cable or they can be charged in the included docking station. The docking station can also charge backup batteries without the radios present.
- Long Range + NOAA Radio — The FRS-B1 uses the maximum allowed power output for FRS radios. Some radio brands would advertise a 36 mile range based on power output (2W), but in real world situations the FRS-B1 will transmit up to 3-5 miles in unobstructed terrain and around 1/2 mile range in an outside, urban environment. The FRS-B1 includes a built-in pre-programmed NOAA receiver and is able to toggle to hear NOAA forecasts and alerts.
- Free Programming Software, Scan, and VOX — The FRS-B1 is designed to be used in situations where you set identical programming on all (or groups) radios. The easy to use, free CPS software allows users to set channels to their preferred privacy tone on each channel. You can add or remove channels from the scanning list to scan only the channels you want to monitor. You can also enable VOX which allows for hands-free operation (Voice activated transmissions). *PC03 Program Cable Not Included*
