Voice Activated Transmit (VOX)
feature enables you to use your radio
"hands free." When VOX is turned on, the radio will automatically begin
transmitting when you speak, without pressing the push-to-talk button.
VOX works well for any application
On most VOX-capable radios there is a slight delay between when you
start speaking and when the microphone turns on so the first part of the
conversation may be clipped. Most radio users overcome this by repeating
the first word.
