As a new employee, I’m on my way to exploring the secrets of the radio, I found some two-way radios have remote kill and remote revive/active function. it looked fun and let’s learn how to set it.
Do you know the remote skill and remote active?
Remote skill ,This unique function used in situations where the radio has been lost temporarilyor stolen, or your radios rent to others, but they are not returned in time. Then we just remote kill kill the lost/rented/stolen radios, and the radio can not work ,neither receive nor transmit. This prevents the radio from being used illegally.
Remote active, When the lost radio has been re-located, We can use another device to send he remote active signal, Then its functions has been all re-activated.
I am so interested in that, The Remote Kill, Remote Active functions provide a safety feature to prevent its unauthorized use.so let us learn how to set it on radios. I choose the RT3 and RT8 as an examples to show hot to set.
1.Setting in RT3 and RT8 Software
1.First we need set in software, make sure RT3 and RT8 can communicate. Both the two communicate on group call or private call are ok.
2.Second ,we also need take note both RT3 and RT8 are with “Radio Enable” and “Radio Disable” clicked.3.Then we fill in the radio ID: RT3 is 1234 and RT8 is 5678.
4.After that ,we should test if RT3 and RT8 can communicate normally. Putting in channel and press PTT so that they can talking .
2. Remote kill
We use RT3 to remote kill RT8.
First we pick up the RT3 and select contact items from the menu,then we choose the Manual Dial and type 5678,After that we can see many options ,choose Radio Disable,Confirm that ,then we can see the Radio Disable Successfully show in LCD.
The other side we see the RT8 LCD display is with words” Disabled” on.we press any button on this radio, there’s no response at all. the radio can not work ,neither receive nor transmit.
After that, RT8 has been disabled, let’s reactive it !As before we pick up the RT3 and select contact items from the menu,then we choose the Manual Dial and type 5678,After that we can see many options ,choose Radio Enable,Confirm that ,then we can see the Radio Enable Successfully show in LCD.
Then RT8 LCD display recover to the normal interface, all buttons and functions are activated and functional.
When I finished that ,I felt very excited .This function is so unique and interesting.I will work harder to learn the function of the radio and share it with you.Any requirement, please feel free to contact us . We are always here to help. Thanks!
