As the comparatively senior digital radio. RT3 & RT8 have more advanced settings.such as the Radio Encryption, which are the most asked by our customers. Let’s get the operation together today!
What is Radio Encryption ?
Encryption is the process of encoding information in such a way that eavesdroppers or hackers cannot understand it. But authorized parties can access it. In two-way radios encryption modifies a voice signal using a coding algorithm. This algorithm is controlled by an encryption key. The encryption key is used by the transmit .And receive radios to enable the voice signal to be coded and decoded for both radios. Therefore, all radios communicating must have matching encryption keys to receive transmissions.
How to set Radio Encryption function on RT3&RT8?
Encryption function for RT3&RT8 need to be set in the programming software.The programming manually always be the first step for the advanced settings.This time I’ll put more detailed operation on this part .And make sure that everybody could understand it .
1.Get ready the RT3&RT8 programming cable. (J6297A)
2.Get ready the RT3&RT8 software download . Although it was said that the USB driver of RT3&RT8 would be installed automatically.You still have to check about it if it works.And this video will help if you have no idea about it. http://blog.retevis.com/video-rt3-rt8-driver-manual-installation/
3.Connect the Radio to the PC .keep the radio power on . Get “read data” firstly . Click “read data”from Program tab. Please see screenshot as below:
Now we come to the KEY POINT.
1.As the picture shows below .Click the Add or Delete depends on how many channels you need .
2.Let’s take the Channel 1 as an example .If you wanna communicate with a analog radio .You could choose Analog on the Channel Mode .Then set the Analog Data on the red box.
3.Also If you wanna communicate with a digital radio.You could click Digital on the Channel Mode.Then you can set the “encryption” function on the right red box.For encryption, there’re basic and enhanced two levels.
Basic level .There are 16 password groups, each group you can set 4digitals password.
Enhance level. There are 8 password groups, each group you can set 32digitals password.
After choosing the Privacy as Basic or Enhanced .Then click a list of Privacy No as your password.Just set the Privacy No list you chose is ok. And the password can be digital or letter or mixed digital/letter.Set it from Privacy Setting.
At last, don’t forget click Program to Write Data when you finish all of this .Then same setting with another radios.
So that’s all about Radio Encryption.If there is anything we didn’t make it clear .Pls leave a comment to let us help.
