Dakota MURS Handheld Transceiver - M538-HT
MURS stands for Multi-Use Radio Service. The MURS frequencies are permitted to transmit at a higher wattage than Family Radio Service devices, which gives them ten times (or more) the possible range of FRS devices.
The M538-HT is a hand-held MURS transceiver that will receive alert signals from the MURS Alert transmitter and also can be used for two-way voice communications between other MURS transceivers. The HT has 5 channels and 38 sub-channels to help you communicate with other users. The M538-HT is powered by 6 rechargeable AA batteries (included) that will last for about 40 hours on a charge. The HT is capable of communicating over distances of several miles*. Although other radio services require a license, MURS is license free. When an alert signal is received from the MURS Alert transmitter the HT will sound off with the voice of the alert signal and will also display an alert icon as a visual display that an alert signal has been received. This has many different applications for small businesses, farms, security guards, outdoorsmen. Anyone who needs to have real time monitoring and two way voice communications will benefit from MURS.
MURS gives you tranmission distances of several miles and is highly recommended for applications where there are a lot of obstructions such as trees, buildings, etc...
*Actual range will vary depending on the local terrain.
