Bypassing the Low Transmission Power Setting
In the USA and Canadian frequency bands, transmissions on select channels are required to be low-power (1 W) by default, because they are intended for intership (bridge-to-bridge) communication (Switching Between 1 W and 25 W Transmitting Modes). If other radios cannot receive these channels due to the low power setting, you can bypass the default restriction during transmission.
NOTE: In the International channel band, the radio does not permit transmissions on these select channels to be changed to high (25 W).
- From a USA or Canadian channel set to low power by default, such a 13,17, or 77, hold PTT.
- While transmitting, select 25W.
