When the signal is weak, the user can activate this feature which will enable BF-860 to pick to the weakest signals on the current channel.
When the user activates this feature, BF-860 will scan all the pre-defined channels on the radio and the user can easily access any communication activities on any channel.
* Hands-free VOX
The user can initiate transmission with his voice, instead of pressing the PTT button. This function helps to liberate your hands so that you can focus better on your missions. The feature can be activated only with paired BelFone earpieces.
* PC Programming
The user can connect the BF-860 to a PC and preset the radio according to his communication needs.
* Squelch Levels (0-9)
This helps minimize interferences from unwanted weak signals and gives you a better audio experience.
By limiting each transmission time, Time-out Timer prevents channels from being unnecessarily occupied by mis-operation and thus improves channel efficiency.
* Wide/narrow Bands Switchable
The user can preset the bandwidth of each channel ( 25KHz or 12.5KHz) according to his communication needs, which delivers flexible and easy migration of channel spacing requirements in any situation.
* Low Power Alert
When the battery gets too low, the LED light on the top of the radio will flash red and the user should start recharging his radio.
* Auto Power Save
When BF-860 is not transmitting or receiving signals and when there is no operation, it automatically switches into power save mode to extend battery standby time.
* CTCSS/CDCSS and STE
This can effectively prevent interferences from other conversations at the same frequency.
* Built-in Flashlight
The built-in flashlight is designed to bring more convenience to the user when the user is working in a dark environment.
