It seems that with the release of the DTX4200 from the folks over at Oricom, the days of needing to run two UHF’s (one on the highway channel, and one for your convoy) are over. The Australian first design of ‘dual receive’ is yet another step with Oricom making comms just that much easier for punters travelling our incredible country.
Essentially how the new features work, is that you can receive and listen in to two different channels simultaneously, without compromising regular features we’ve all come to expect out of a UHF and without needing to work out which radio is broadcasting. A quick glance at the hand-piece and you’ll know exactly who’s saying what!
The DTX4200 unit itself is a tuck-away design, for when space is at a premium, and you don’t want your knees bashing on a huge UHF under the dash. The unit is made from a tough as nails die-cast metal chassis, is IP54 dust and splash resistant, will work on 12 or 24 volt systems, and can have 3 groups of up to 16 channels programmed into it. Plus, it also comes with a 2m microphone extension cable, slide in bracket mount and all mounting hardware. It’s got a 3.5mm external jack too for an external speaker or PA adaptor and is covered with a full 5-year warranty.
“We are receiving a very positive reception to this radio”, said Oricom’s Managing Director, Kevin McDonnell, “it’s the result of extensive consultation and rigorous testing, and this radio will change the way users look at their UHF CB communications equipment.”
