Today there has a new amateur ask me how to do after his HD1 radio had been remotely killed by somebody. So, what do you do after your radio be killed？
What is the remote kill and wake up function
Sometimes we need to use a radio to carry out intra-group or out-of-group communication, such as traveling, team activities, Climbing.
In the team activity, if a person gets out, the leader can use the remote kill function to let his hand-held radio temporarily unable to use and get in the lock state.
After the game over, use the remote wake up function to let it wake up to use.
Or when you accidentally lose your radio, you can borrow someone’s radio to remote kill your radio, prevent the call information from being leaked.
This is the original intention of this function.
This feature is used in some special cases, such as losing or temporarily disabling a walkie-talkie and waking up after the end.
The radio after being killed cannot do anything and be locked unless you program it to recover, let’s talk about it next.
How to set the function
Set the frequency:410.32500, color code:1, same contacts, A’s ID:9966999, B’s ID:4606001, make the two radio can connect.
