How to set frequency seek function for Retevis RA85 GMRS Radio?

Retevis RA85 GMRS Radio has a compact and distinctive shape. Its design accords with ergonomic design, 1.6-inch screen plus full keyboard buttons, to ensure that users can easily access and set functions. An outstanding advantage of Retevis RA85 is the frequency seek function, someone also called it frequency measurement function. Today we will understand what is the frequency seek function and how to set the frequency seek function of Retevis RA85 gmrs radio.

What is frequency seek function?

The frequency seek function, also known as frequency measurement function, usually called the frequency copy function, is a very useful function in the use of walkie-talkies. When using this function, one walkie-talkie can seek the frequency of another walkie-talkie and save it. And then realize the communication between two walkie-talkies with different frequencies.

How to set frequency seek function for Retevis RA85 GMRS Radio?

The RA85's frequency seek function can be set in two ways, one is to customize the side keys through the program software, and the other is to combine shortcut keys. Let’s look at the easiest way first, combining shortcut keys.

Step 2: Press * key, Frequency seek starts, the screen displays SEEK...

press * key

Step 3, Press the PTT button to transmit on another RA85 gmrs Radio, then the RA85 with the frequency seek function will search for the radio frequency and CTCSS/DCS being transmitted.

After the frequency seek function is completed, the two RA85 gmrs radios with different frequencies and CTCSS/DCS that could not talk, can communicate with each other directly.

After operating the frequency seek function, the original two RA85 gmrs radios with different frequencies and different sub-audios can communicate with each other without the help of program. From this, we can see that the frequency seek function is more similar to the wireless copy function.

customize the side keys to achieve frequency seek function for Retevis RA85 GMRS Radio

Step 1, open the software, open the optional feature, Customize side key 1 or side key 2, select SEARCH function, we take Key1 short press as an example, select SEARCH.

What should be paid attention to for RA85 frequency seek function?

The RA85 frequency seek function aims to realize the communication between two RA85s with different frequency subtones. Its frequency seek function may be inaccurate and slight deviations may appear, but this does not affect the final effect. Although there may be slight deviations in the searched frequency, as shown in the figure below, the two RA85 GMRS radios can still communicate with each other.
