Questions & Answers
Q1: How to set RA685 EU VHF UHF Dual Band to full frequency full function mode?
A1: ▶Press PTT + Key 5 to power on, the screen shows 【Amatuer】 is switched to (144-146, 430-440MHZ frequencies can be transmitted/received, and other frequencies can only receive and not transmit).
▶Press PTT+V/M key to turn on, the screen displays 【FACTORY 】to switch to (full frequency in the UV band can be transmitted/received).
