With the DLR digital technology you speak clearer and louder across an extended range without static. Because the radios are digital, talk farther and clearer up to the edge of coverage. A real advantage over analog technology. The design of this radio has your operations in mind. It is intuitive, simple to use and convenient to carry.

It can be very distracting to hear other conversations especially if those are not within your organization. Equally frustrating is to have your communications heard by others. The DLR radio gives you peace of mind and keeps your team focused on the task, by making your communications more private.
The digital DLR radio protocol leverages Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) technology, which makes communication more reliable and private when compared to standard analog radios.
To take advantage of Private Communications, you can quickly set up your radio fleet with a unique Radio Profile ID Number. By choosing from 10,000 available codes, you can assure privacy from other neighboring radios.

DLR radios are more than a simple push-to-talk solution. Get things done efficiently by choosing from several call options that tailor the functionality to the operational performance of your organization.

Free-up the radio channel by allowing two people to instantly connect privately after a group transmission is complete using the private reply feature. This eliminates unnecessary group chatter. You no longer have to look for the phone extensions to talk privately. Simply identify the name of the person you want to talk to and when they respond, push the radio top button to start the communication.

In some organizations, it is critical for an employee to quickly access the manager on duty. By programming the top button to Direct Call, you can easily reach a specific individual, enabling instant communication and an immediate response.

It can be difficult to communicate to an entire group without having to go to each channel individually. The Page All Available and Call All Available feature provides you the flexibility to communicate a message to everyone who is not currently tied up in a conversation. Simply program this feature into the top button or set it to an unused channel.

Immediately lower your radio volume to the minimum level by simply pressing the radio top button. Use this feature when you need to listen to a customer without interruptions. Quiet background radio communications can still be heard and will remind you to return to normal channel activity.


Promotes orderly communication through the use of a prompt tone that alerts team members when a channel is available and they can speak.
