Q: What is the power consumption in amps of the Callbox XT? Does it use power when not in active use, or only when being used? Thanks
A: Here is what is listed in the Feature bullets on the product page: Current draw: Standby mode - 80mA, Receiving a call - 200mA, Transmitting - 500-600mA 1 channel, 1 watt transmitter
Q: What is the frequency of this unit? does it require an FCC freq clearance or is it Commercial Off The Shelf equipment? What is the callbox and base station range?
A: MURS does not require an FCC license. We have them programmed to channel 1 of MURS. More info here: https://www.intercomsonline.com/murs-radio...multi-use-radio-service-technology-guide
Range is highly subjective according to the environment a system is put into. It can be a mile or more. The range will be similar to other 2-way radios in the same environment. More info on that here:
