·Dust/Water Protection Class IP66
In harsh, noisy and dusty working conditions such as construction sites and engineering sites, your radio is apt to be smudged. The TC-610 portable radios are IP66-rated and have excellent dust/water protection performance. The IP66 protection allows you to wash off mud and dust on your radio. A water jet (40mm￠) from a nozzle, which is projected from any direction against your radio for up to one minute, must not have any harmful effect. Your radio could be dried to operate normally after you wash it.
·Powerful Audio and Wide Communication Range
Superior audio quality is the premise for your team to work efficiently in noise environments. A powerful speaker with size of 45mm ￠ (36mm ￠ speaker for common radios) ensures clear and crisp sound, even in noisy environments. You can also use high transmit power for wide communication coverage.
·Reliable Mechanical Design
Battery latch is apt to become loose after long time use, and even occasionally causes your radio to shut off automatically. All these will affect your working efficiency. HYT proprietary battery latch mechanism is applied to TC-610 radios. It delivers secure connection between battery and radio, no matter how long the radio has been in use.
·Innovative Industrial Design
The TC-610 abandons conventional black body, and employs fashionable yellow rubber housing, making the radio more comfortable to handle.
Main Features and Functions
·High/Low Power Switchable
By simple pressing one button, users can switch to low power when communicating within limited range coverage or switch to high power when further distance is required. High transmit power optimizes range coverage while low transmit power conserves battery consumption, all at the user’s control.
·Programmable 12.5kHz / 25kHz Channel Spacing
The feature enables flexibility and easy migration of channel spacing requirements when the need arises, with no need to buy new radios.
Allows users to monitor the activity on the current channel. The feature is especially helpful for receiving a weak signal.
The Battery Save feature is automatically activated once no activity on the channel and no operation performed, for extended operation time.
·Low Battery Alert
Alert users to recharge the battery should the battery level run low.
·Busy Channel Lockout
A channel already in use is not available to other users.
The feature allows for more efficient use of channels by limiting the amount of time of each transmission.
You are able to customize the features of each radio for each user.
Easily copy the features of one radio to another.
Set up workgroups/users with unique CDCSS/CTCSS to prevent unwanted conversations on the same frequency.
·Selectable Squelch Level (0-9)
Helps minimize interference from undesired weak signals and helps weak signals be heard.
The channel scan feature enables the radio to continuously scan each channel in the scan list for activity. Simply press a side function button to activate scanning. When activity is detected on a channel the scan process will stop and you will hear the transmission.
·Voice Operated Transmit (VOX)
Enjoy the convenience of hands-free operation when used with optional accessories.
*IP66 water protection ensures the radio to be protected against a water jet for one minute. The diameter of the water jet is 40 mm.
Radio Licensing Information
Radio licensing: A guide to licensed and licence-free radios
What is a radio licence and do I need one?
There are two types of two-way radios, licensed radios and licence-free radios (PMR446).
Licensed radios require a dedicated frequency which ensures that only those on that frequency can hear transmissions. In order to access a dedicated frequency, a radio licence granted by Comreg is required by law. Licences are based on the quantity of equipment to be licensed.
The cost is €22 per piece of equipment plus a fixed charge of €22 for the duration of the licence. (e.g. 4 walkie talkies + 2 radio mics = 6 units +1 Fixed Charge = 7 x €22 = €154).
Licence-free radios (also called PMR446 radios) operate on the PMR446 radio frequency, they can be used by anyone within the UK and EU and as the title suggests they need no radio licence.
Licensed radios are usually more expensive than licence-free models, but have a larger power output (of up to 5 watts for handheld radios) and so offer increased range and coverage.
For example a primary school would typically find coverage on licence-free equipment sufficient whereas licenced equipment would be better suited to a secondary school, college or university.
In addition, a licence will offer increased security of transmissions through better monitoring of frequencies, especially if the licence is specific to your site.
Licenced radios are generally more robust, with clearer audio quality and the conversation more secure. Licensed radios also offer much more functionality than license-free radios, you can make group calls, send text messages and dial up individual users.
More about your Comreg licence
In order to obtain your licence, an application to Comreg has to be made. We are more than happy to apply on your behalf and offer a managed service in order to maintain your Comreg licence throughout your radio project. Or if you wish to make an application yourself, please feel free to ask us any questions along the way as we have vast experience in completing these forms and can go through it with you over the telephone. The application process is usually complete within 10-15 working days.

Non licensed radios are a cheaper alternative to licensed radios and can only have a power output of 0.5 watts giving them a fairly small range.
Licence-free radios can be used in the work place and for personal use, ideally where minimal coverage is needed, within small buildings where users are communicating in a close range.
Examples where these radios can be used effectively include smaller schools and construction sites, warehouses, hospitality venues and independent retail businesses.
For leisure they can be ideal for communicating between friends and family while camping and skiing, or if you are at a leisure park or hiking.
All PMR446 radios use the same eight channels. If there are a high number of users in a given area (cities and other built up areas) frequencies become extremely congested leading to interference on the channels, although usually there are multiple channels to select in order to find a clearer channel.
