Uniden’s new UH8050S UHF CB mobile radio aims to provide continuous communication on the road by dynamically switching to unused channels.

The DINi in-car mount radio’s MasterScan technology 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," Uniden says. "Using pre-batched group channels also helps to avoid complicated settings by preloading group channels. The Lightning Encode feature is an advanced rectifier circuit, enabling the radio to decode CTCSS/DCS quickly."

Also on board is Uniden's BearCat scanning technology, which allows the UH8050S to scan unencrypted analogue UHF police, fire and ambulance frequencies, UHF CB Channels and user programmable channels at the same time. It has 100 user programmable RX channels, allowing users to select from 9600 receivable channels.

Another technology, Instant Replay, lets users record and replay up to one minute of recent received signals.

The shock-resistant unit, which has a recommended retail price of $449.95, is +12V and +24V DC power compatible, has an 18km typical range line of sight and comes with a heavy duty microphone (MK850) and microphone hanger.
