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. When an alert signal is received from the MURS Alertâ„¢ transmitter the BS 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. This has many different applications for small businesses, farmers, security guards, outdoorsmen. Anyone who needs to have real time monitoring and two way voice communications will benefit from MURS. The base station can also be used to communicate with the M538-HT hand held radio. This allows someone in the house or shop to be in direct contact with someone out and about in the field. This allows a parent to keep track of the kids or a supervisor to stay in touch with the employees.

The M538-BS is a base station MURS transceiver that will receive alert signals from the MURS Alertâ„¢ 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.

    great service
    Arty -- Mid-Ohio   12/29/2011
    This item works well indoors, when its warm, but absolutely refuses to work when the outside temperature is below 50 degrees F regardless of time of day or weather conditions. I have two transmitters and both function this way... making me wonder if they're of any use at all outside.
    ANTHONY -- eugene, OR   12/3/2011
    Works great never had any problem with their products
    DANIEL -- pickerington, OH   6/12/2011
    Instructions are very poor and are not adequate for someone who has never used this type of device.
    MIKE -- lockport, IL   6/10/2010
    MALCOLM M. -- richmond, KY   3/24/2010
    These units work as advertised, but you must do a little work on your own to adjust position, height, sensitivity, etc. Nice customer support.
