Clearly labeled switches provide instant access to channel 16 and the call channel as well as numerous functions. In addition, the rotary selector makes channel selection quick and positive. The function display provides visual confirmation of selected channels and functions with large, easy-to-understand characters. For convenient nighttime operation, display and control backlighting with an auto OFF function is available.
