The M538-BS is a base station MURS transceiver that will receive alert signals from the MURS Alert transmitter and also can be used for two way voice communications between other MURS transceivers. The Base Station has 5 channels and 38 sub channels to help you communicate with other users. The M538-BS is powered by a plug-in transformer. The Base Station is capable of communicating over distances of up to 4 miles depending on the terrain. The FCC also allows you to use MURS without a license. Although other radio services require a license, MURS is license free.
When an alert signal is received from the MURS Alert transmitter the Base Station will sound off with the voice of the alert signal "Alert Zone One", etc. and will also display an alert icon as a visual display that an alert signal has been received. Also, the M538-BS is equipped with a normally open (N/O) relay output. The relay can be used to connect the base station to other existing systems such as alarm panels or even doorbells. This has many different applications for small businesses, farmers, security guards, outdoorsmen. Anyone who needs to have real time monitoring and two way voice communications will benefit from MURS. The base station can also be used to communicate with the M538-HT hand held radio. This allows someone in the house or shop to be in direct contact with someone out and about in the field. This allows a parent to keep track of the kids or a supervisor to stay in touch with the employees.
