Description
 

The UHF Wireless PA (Public Address) is a radio receiver that allows you to use your base station intercom or mobile 2-way radio to deliver voice messages directly to an attached PA speaker up to 2 miles away. This device operates with two way radios in the UHF 450-470MHz frequency range.

You’ll use this solution where hardwired installation is simply impossible, too expensive, or temporary. The UHF Wireless PA receiver and PA speaker are designed for quick setup and usage to deliver your message to a large campus or property. You can use this device with our other UHF products since it uses the same unlicensed frequencies. When used with the UHF Commercial Intercom or the UHF 410 450-470MHz Two-Way Radio you can program coding that will restrict access to the UHF Wireless PA to only those radios that have a proper code programmed. This ensures that only authorized people have access to the PA system.

You can use a dedicated communications channel between the UHF Wireless PA and the radios or intercoms that are contacting it, which enables you to use your radios or intercoms for normal communications without broadcasting over the PA system.

You can do zone paging, or paging in more than one location, by installing multiple UHF Wireless PA receivers and setting a unique paging code for each one. All the receivers can operate on the same channel with use of this code. An “All Call” code can also be programmed so all zones can be paged at once. The feature requires an optional DTMF tone decoder to be installed in the UHF Wireless PA.

To widen the coverage area, you can install up to two loudspeakers on a single UHF Wireless PA receiver. A single speaker will cover up to 100 feet. Each speaker comes with a 25 ft. cable. Cables can be extended by using standard RCA phono cables and couplers.

When 2-way radios are used in the same area as the UHF Wireless PA speaker, feedback may result that can render the system unusable. For those applications the receiver can be programmed to record the incoming messages and play them back over the speaker when the talk button is released on the 2-way radio. Recorded messages are limited to a maximum of 20 seconds.

The UHF Wireless PA receiver requires 110VAC power. It also comes equipped with an emergency backup battery that can temporarily power the radio if primary power is interrupted. The rechargeable battery backup is not intended to operate the radio for an extended period of time. A heavy duty external +12 VDC battery can also be used to power the receiver and the receiver can be configured for powered operation to maximize battery life. A solar panel kit can be used to power the UHF Wireless PA receiver without the need for a power supply in locations where AC power is not available.

An optional magnet-mount external antenna can be installed at a higher elevation to increase receiving range. This antenna has a 25 ft. cable to allow optimum antenna location.

The radio receiver box is not waterproof so it should be located inside out of the elements. There is an available weatherproof, fiberglass reinforced polyester enclosure designed to house the UHF Wireless PA receiver and antenna that can be used for temporary outdoor applications.

In heavily populated areas where other UHF radios may be in use, this unit has the "2-Tone Decode" capability that enables it to only receive pages from other radios with the "2-Tone Encode" feature. The UHF Commercial Intercom and the UHF J-V110 Two-Way Radio have this feature.

Once installed, operating the UHF Wireless PA radio receiver requires no human contact. The UHF Wireless PA reduces installation costs that would otherwise be incurred by using a wireless PA system.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) requires the owners of radios operating on these frequencies to obtain a station license before using them.
