Buyer's Guide - Full Keypad

These radios have a full 16-key DTMF keypad. DTMF (Dual-Tone Multi-Frequency) signaling enables a radio, through the use of it's keypad, to send signals. These signals can be used to control another device. The other device is programmed to recognize the signals as commands.  Some common applications of DTMF signals are:

  • opening and closing gates
  • placing phone calls using the public telephone network (see Telephone Interconnect below)
  • turning on and off remote devices such as sprinkling systems
  • configure a repeater system remotely
  • station identification, and other functions such as calling individual radios, radio disabling, and sending short messages

Telephone Interconnect
Telephone Interconnect enables your radio system to be connected to a telephone PBX system, which allows the radio to make phone calls using the radio keypad. Of course, your FCC license must be written to allow access to a public switched network.
