Uniden has expanded its line-up of UHF radio communication with the new UH8020S UHF CB mobile radio featuring Master Scan technology. Abandoning the need for costly third-party installation, the ultra-compact and portable UH8020S offers plug-and-play set-up and can be simply removed when not in use, or transferred between vehicles.
The UH8020S comes with a windscreen mounting kit and adjustable magnetic antenna, which can be fixed to the vehicle as desired. Priced (retail) at $279.95, the UH8020S is said to be one of the most advanced, affordable and convenient ways of communicating whilst out and about.
The UH8020S is designed for truck drivers seeking a reliable and affordable unit for communicating with others on the road. The compact and portable design means it can also be removed and locked away in secure storage, minimising theft to the trucks while not in use.
The UH8020S features Uniden’s Master Scan technology, designed to ensure minimal disruptions for continuous communication. Dynamic switching lets users retain constant communication by changing over to unused channels. This network scan function searches for other radios that share the same CTCSS or DCS tone. When the radio detects a signal with no code or an incorrect code, it switches to an unused channel when transmitting. By scanning only group channels, radios in the network will be able to detect and receive group transmissions, offering continuous communication without interruption.
Using pre-batched group channels also helps to avoid complicated settings. The Lightning Encode feature is an advanced rectifier circuit, enabling the radio to decode CTCSS/DCS quickly.
The UH8020S has been temperature tested to withstand harsh summers and is shock resistant for high performance, even when travelling across rugged terrain. For added peace of mind, the UH8020S is backed by Uniden’s five year platinum warranty.
Other features include a microphone and a built-in large LCD backlit screen for easy viewing. Users can also choose from seven backlit display colours to suit personal preferences and lighting scenarios.
