Ham radio has always played an important role in the communication world and is used in many scenarios. Retevis RA89 is welcomed by many Ham radio enthusiasts and communication enthusiasts. Retevis RA89 is a dual-band high-power handheld walkie-talkie with a waterproof rating of IP68. Its battery life is above average, and it’s strong across a number of metrics, so let me tell you about its great features.
RA89 has a high power of 10w, sufficient transmission power allows you to communicate with your family or friends over long distances. You can adjust the power level (high, medium, low) according to your needs. Choose high power to get longer communication distance. Theoretically, it can reach 5 kilometers. RA89 has two frequency bands, UHF and VHF. The UHF frequency has a relatively strong penetrating ability and can be used in cities where there are dense obstacles. VHF has a relatively strong diffraction ability and is more suitable for open outdoor use.
The IP68 rating allows the RA89 ham radio to be submerged at a depth of 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes. The RA89 waterproof ham radio allows you to maintain smooth calls and close contacts no matter on land or at sea.
Dual Standby/Dual Watching
This means you can “watch” two channels (half duplex). Monitor two different frequencies (even on different bands (VHF/UHF)), the radio will monitor both and give priority to the first station that receives an incoming call. RA89 is also equipped with FM radio 65-108MHz, allowing you to enjoy it at your leisure. In addition, the dual standby meter function allows you to easily answer calls while using the FM radio function. You can listen to FM radio broadcasts while still monitoring your radio frequencies in the background. Any incoming calls are prioritized to ensure you don’t miss any important calls while listening to the radio.
