Re: Dsc

SD, it will switch to whatever channel you were on when you began this operation. So if you want to talk on 68, you turn it to 68 and then do what you said above. When they answer, it will switch them over to 68 automatically. You may know this but it sounded like you were saying the default was always Ch 8. And I know all radios are different but if I am receiving a call, all I have to do is hit the transmit button to answer it and the freq change occurs automatically....IOW, pick up the mic and talk just like would do if your phone was ringing. It also has caller ID so you know who is calling. If it is somebody you already have programmed, their name will show up. If not, it will just be an MMSID number....just like a cellphone would work.
