The BTECH Mobiles Have Been Treated to a Full Redesign and Upgrade
BaoFeng Tech announced today the launch of three new mobile radios. The BTECH UV-50X2 (https://baofengtech.com/uv-50×2), the BTECH UV-25X4 (https://baofengtech.com/uv-25X4), and the BTECH UV-25X2 (https://baofengtech.com/uv-25×2).
The X-Series Update introduces a full color LCD display. Each element in the display can be configured independently. Whether you primarily operate from a dark vehicle or in a brightly lit ham shack; you can configure the display to appropriate colors for your environment. With 42,758 different color schemes, you will be able to completely customize your radio to your personal ham-shack preferences!
- The X-Series Radios operate as ‘multiple radios’ in one, with either 144 MHz, *220MHz, *350MHz, or 430 MHz as the “Main” TX/RX band, while simultaneously watching up to 3 other frequencies or channels; and, if you like, you can configure your X Series Radio for simultaneous VHF-VHF or UHF-UHF operation, too
Dual Synchronized Display
The X-Series Update introduces the option to configure the LCD to display both a channel’s alphanumeric name and its frequency. When enabled this allows you to simultaneously display two channel’s names and their frequencies. With only a glance at your LCD, you now can have all or your repeater’s information – without any toggling or button presses.
The X-Series Update also introduces editable channels. Once a channel’s frequency is stored; the new X-Series Update allows you to modify all the channel’s advanced settings after programming; this includes tones, squelch, signaling, power, scanning, and more. You will never need to delete and reprogram a channel just to adjust its power or tone settings.
Resume Scanning When You Want
Have you wanted to reply to an active channel that was scanning only to have to enable scanning after your conversation is over? The X-Series Update includes new scanning resume methods – including resuming scanning after a transmission. Other resume methods include resuming scanning automatically, after a reboot, or power loss! Changing the Scanning methods is as easy as changing one option in the radio’s on-screen menu.
Variable Frequency Range Scanning
While in frequency mode, the X-Series update allows you to enter in a specific frequency range to scan. You no longer are required to edit the VFO range through a computer or are forced to scan the whole band when you only what to scan a small portion the band. You can edit both the frequency range and frequency interval that you prefer on the on screen menu.
The X-Series Radios can respond to remote commands. By remotely sending DTMF tones you can both ‘Stun’ (Transmit Disable) or ‘Kill’ (Disables all functions) the X-Series Mobiles. You also can ‘Revive’ a X-Series Mobile from its “stunned” or “killed” state. You can also remotely turn on the microphone through ‘Monitor’; or ensure the radio is within range by using ‘Inspect’ (replies with a confirmation tone when it is within range).
Supported and Programmable through CHIRP Software
The X-Series Mobiles are supported on a ‘Day One’ Release on CHIRP. This means for the hundreds of radios already supported through CHIRP – you can easily import your radio data from your previous handheld or mobile radio right onto your new X-Series Radio, which makes it that much easier to program.
