The most versatile two way radio on the market, certified for use for commercial, public and amateur frequencies. The OBLTR-8R is FCC Certified for Part 90 usage. The OBLTR-8R is able to Transmit and Receive fully on Narrowband (12.5kHz).
The OBLTR-8R has a very rugged case with a Water Protection IP53 Rating making it PERFECT for dirty environments, field and outdoor use.
With any future firmware revisions or updates, your OBLTR-8R purchase is able to be updated indefinitely! Firmware upgrades are done in-house at our AnyTone Tech facility and the process is seamless! When you register your warranty with AnyTone Tech, you will be notified of any upgrades that are available for your OBLTR-8R.
The OBLTR-8R has one built-in receiver but can "watch" two channels (semi duplex). Monitor two different frequencies (even on different bands (VHF/UHF)) and the radio will monitor both frequencies giving priority to the first station to receive an incoming call.
Save up to 99 FM stations in preset memories so you can instantly tune to your favorite local broadcast. You can listen to the FM Broadcast radio, while still monitoring your radio frequencies in the background. Any incoming call will be given priority insuring you never miss an important call while listening to the radio.
The OBLTR-8R supports almost every available Analog Tone Method. It supports CTCSS, DCS, DTMF, 2 TONE, and 5 TONE calling methods. Set-up your calling methods to call by individual or by group. You can even send custom text messages (saved through software) using the 5TONE calling methods. Tone calling (private line) is required by most commercial applications and the OBLTR-8R supports the latest standards, even allowing custom CTCSS Tones.
The OBLTR-8R can even decode (receive) commands. This allows for ANI (Caller ID), Remote Stun, Remote Kill, Pager calls, and many more features.
Keep yourself and your family safe by tuning in to changing weather conditions. These radios feature a Weather Radio Broadcast mode, which allows you to select a weather channel and hear the latest weather alerts from NOAA. You can even monitor for NOAA alerts in the background.
You can program your OBLTR-8R exactly how you want it. There are 200 programmable memory channels and 10 memory banks. You can add or remove channels from memory banks or from your scanning list right on the keypad. The side keys are programmable to multiple options including adding a secondary (dual) push-to-talk option. You can give channels alphanumeric names, without using a computer. The radio has 3 power levels (6 watt maximum), allowing you to choose how far you can communicate. You can set the scanning speed (fast, slow), set VFO scanning limits, and resume scanning after a power cycle. You can easily set squelch levels on a per channel basis directly from the keypad. The OBLTR-8R has 2 VFO banks, and allows you to be in both VFO and channel modes at the same time. You can easily program from a PC to set-up the radio to operate exactly as needed.
In commercial applications you can set up radios in work modes and customize and restrict from manual programming modes (and menus). You can even lockout the keypad completely.
