    The two slot simplex splits a single analogue channel into two separate channels resulting in the quantity of channels available doubling. Two-slot operation is typically only possible when a DMR Repeater is included in a system however with the Entel DX425 then they are able to overcome the restriction on both simplex and DMR446 channels so both channels are always available to the user.

The radios has a lone-worker timer which checks that the radio user is okay, if no response is received then the radio will automatically send an alarm call to other radio users, in addition to this then the alarm alerts non-radio users in the vicinity to the emergency. Another safety feature which the Entel DX425 has is the man-down alarm, this is again designed to protect people working alone.

This is useful for businesses who need to keep an eye on multiple people at one time, for example a manager needing to monitor the reception team and maintenance team. Due to having a display screen, this radio has the caller ID function which works just like a mobile phone, it comes up with the radio number or alias such as reception on the screen so you are able to know who you are communicating with.

    • User Guide

    Yes! This radio is a full-power unit which works on licensed spectrum. Here’s a few important points to remember:

    • Licencing is really easy and cost effective, so don’t be put off
    • You only licence the frequency (channel) your radios use, not the number of radios or handsets
    • If you’re buying radios to use outside of the UK, you will need to get a licence from your country’s regulatory body
    • Want us to guide you through it? Call us on 01778 426777 or email info@theradioshop.co.uk

    Buy a licence online:

    You can choose from one of the following two options to buy a licence online. Once you place your order, we’ll apply for the licence for you, which is valid for 5 years. Ofcom will then contact you directly in 5 years’ time to arrange the renewal.

    Remember: you don’t need a licence per radio, just a licence per fleet of radios. One licence will usually provide enough cover for your company or site (or you as an individual if you’re buying for private use)
