Essential Info

MURS stands for Multi-Use Radio Service. The MURS frequencies are permitted to transmit at a higher wattage than Family Radio Service devices, which gives them ten times (or more) the possible range of FRS devices. MURS gives you tranmission distances of several miles and is highly recommended for applications where there are a lot of obstructions such as trees, buildings, or more.

When an alert signal is received from the MURS Alert™ transmitter the base station will sound off with the voice of the alert signal and will also display an alert icon as a visual display that an alert signal has been received. Also, the M538-BS is equipped with a normally open (N/O) relay output. The relay can be used to connect the base station to other existing systems such as alarm panels or even doorbells. The base station can also be used to communicate with the M538-HT hand held radio. The M538-BS is a base station MURS transceiver will receive alert signals from the MURS Alert™ transmitter and also can be used for two way voice communications between other MURS transceivers. The BS has 5 channels and 38 sub channels to help you communicate with other users. The M538-BS is powered by a plug-in transformer. The BS is capable of communicating over distances of several miles. The FCC also allows you to use MURS without a license. Although other radio services require a license, MURS is license free. This kit operates from 6 AA batteries (sold separately).

    Is installed and is very clear. However,seems to be over-sensitive to the wind. Have had to turn it off on windy days as "alerts" every 5 to 10 minutes. Any suggestions would be welcome. Hate to turn it off as am afraid of messing it up????????Mrs. Lyle Shearer, Denton, NE
