KEEPING IN CLOSE CONTACT
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.
