LIFE ON THE ROAD is be­com­ing eas­ier for long-haul truck driv­ers, ac­cord­ing to Uniden, point­ing to the re­lease of its new DIN-Size 5-Watt UH9050 UHF CB mobile ra­dio.

Uniden says the new UH9050 UHF CB is built for tough Aus­tralian con­di­tions and fea­tures a dis­tinct con­tem­po­rary style. The ra­dio is pow­ered with 12/24 volt­age mak­ing it suit­able for all ve­hi­cle types. The days of mes­sages be­ing lost in com­mu­ni­ca­tion are over, ac­cord­ing to Uniden, with the unit’s in­stant re­play func­tion that can record and re­play up to one minute of re­cently re­ceived sig­nals.

Uniden says the UH9050 will al­low driv­ers to com­mu­ni­cate ef­fort­lessly while on the road, with in­no­va­tive fea­tures such as Smart Mic, Master Scan and a built-in scan­ner, mak­ing the UH9050 more than just a ra­dio.

Smart Mic tech­nol­ogy fea­tures on the heavy-duty speaker mi­cro­phone, al­low­ing users to push a but­ton to switch be­tween 100 user-pro­grammed chan­nels, the voice en­hancer, call tone and SELCALL.

Master Scan en­ables un­in­ter­rupted com­mu­ni­ca­tion on not just one chan­nel, but a group of chan­nels. If the cur­rent chan­nel is in­ter­rupted by oth­ers out­side the group, all ra­dios in the group will au­to­mat­i­cally switch to a new clear chan­nel al­low­ing for com­mu­ni­ca­tion to con­tinue seam­lessly.

Uniden says with the ad­di­tion of the Triple Watch fea­ture, it’s also pos­si­ble to mon­i­tor two chan­nels plus a standby chan­nel in or­der to cap­ture those all-im­por­tant trans­mis­sions.

The ra­dio comes with dual speak­ers in the head unit and speaker mi­cro­phone, with the op­tion of an ad­di­tional speaker con­nect­ing to the rear of the unit.

The voice en­hancer fea­ture, which Uniden says al­lows the UH9050 to choose dif­fer­ent au­dio level set­tings (nor­mal, bass, midrange and high), pro­vides a nat­u­ral voice for su­per clar­ity and per­for­mance.

The voice scram­ble func­tion is said to al­low busi­nesses to con­duct pri­vate com­mu­ni­ca­tion by scram­bling the voice sig­nal, pre­vent­ing other users, with­out spe­cial scram­bling equip­ment, from un­der­stand­ing the con­ver­sa­tion.

Uniden says the DIN-size ra­dio unit is easy to in­stall and can be neatly fit­ted into the truck’s cabin. With a mod­ern de­sign and a large LCD dis­play, in­clud­ing seven colour back­lit op­tions, the UH9050 is easy to use, with­out caus­ing too much dis­trac­tion while on the road.
