  • A waterproof Li–ion battery pack that runs approximately 17.5 hours and has been designed for use in extremely cold environments.
  • Dust-tight construction prevents ingress of powder dust, sand, mud and other debris.
  • 128 memory channels with eight zones and an eight-character alphanumeric LCD.
  • Popular signaling, such as 2-Tone, 5-Tone, CTCSS and DTCS, is built-in.
  • Selective calling and ANI features — including push-to-talk (PTT) ID, radio check (RX only) and stun/revive (RX only) — are programmable with built-in MDC 1200 signaling.
  • Emergency transmission is easily accessible using a red button located on the radio's top panel.
  • The man-down function, with optional UT-124R unit required, automatically sends an emergency signal when the transceiver is left in the horizontal position for a predetermined amount of time.
  • Similar to the man-down function, the lone-worker function alerts a coworker or dispatcher if the radio has not been operated for a set duration.
  • The radio is supplied with a two-year warranty.
