New communication range covers AM and UHF frequencies

Uniden unveils new CB mobile range
Uniden UH5050 CB mobile radio.


Equipment supplier Uniden has launched two new CB mobile radios for long-distance transport applications, the UH5050 and the PRO5050 AM.

Priced at $299.95, Uniden says the communication tools fit within standard DIN slots and are built rugged for local conditions.

The first model in the new range, the five-watt UH5050 CB mobile radio, features 80 channels and the ability to connect to 60 programmable RX channels for storing favourite frequencies between 400-520mHz.

According to Uniden, unwanted conversations are blocked by the "continuous tone coded squelch system and digital coded squelch"; a front-mounted speaker provides clarity and volume; and a built-in automatic volume stabiliser (AVS) detects narrowband and wideband transmissions.

A range extender allows the UH5050 to "operate using a local repeater station to retransmit signals over a wider area" and the dual watch operation means drivers can monitor two channels simultaneously.

For busy drivers, the channel lock-out feature blocks all activity on the channel.

Those who operate on the AM frequency would look to the four-watt PRO5050AM CN mobile radio, which has access to 40 channels, an auto noise limiter, and a noise blanker.

While they operate on different frequencies, the two models both feature a LCD screen and button layout, backlit by two colour options; a call tone function, which allows drivers to choose a wake-up tone; and a signal strength and RF power (S/RF) meter.

They also include instant channel programming and recall, which allows a driver to recall a priority channel via the microphone.

The Uniden range of UHF antennas and mounting brackets has also been updated.
