The UV-50X3 is a tri-band radio with two receivers capabilities, which enables simultaneous RX/TX within VHF / 222 MHz / UHF bands (full duplex), as well as dual VHF/VHF and UHF/UHF receiver capabilities. It can also act as a full cross-band repeater allowing the user to connect or extend the range of repeaters, handhelds, and mobiles. The cross band repeater works in between VHF and UHF frequencies. Moreover the UV50X3 includes a wide receive coverage (ex. AM medium waves and VHF AIR-band) beyond the transmitting frequencies. Other features:
- Independent VFO, audio levels, and squelch
The transceiver includes separate volume adjustments for the independent VFOs. The UV50X3 has dual speakers in the LCD panel, allowing stereo audio when one station is being received but separate monaural speakers when both VFOs are active, which are controlled by the separate volume knobs. A third speaker is located on the radio body (chassis) which can be set as the only speaker, simultaneously be used with the panel speakers, or can be unused as well. The radio has both line-input and line-output jacks for your own speaker system. Also allows you to listen to a line-input source while still monitoring. The squelch is adjustable on each side of the display.
- Memory channels
The UV-50X3 has 1000 memory channels in two separate memory banks, the right VFO has 500 channels and the left VFO has 500 channels. You can program both active, transmit/receive channels, and passive, receive only, channels into the same memory bank.
- Separate LCD Panel and microphone
The UV50X3 has a front panel that is separated from the main radio body. The panel is connected with standard Ethernet cable (included) allowing the radio body to be remotely (or trunk) mounted. The front panel includes several mounting accessories including a suction cup mount. You can set the LCD Panel to 8 different colors. The front panel has a built-in microphone which allows you to either use the included DTMF microphone or the panel microphone. The separate DTMF microphone can also be plugged directly into the chassis.
- Programmable and customizable
The radio can be completely programmed without a computer, including channel alpha-numeric names. The transceiver is fully supported through the free ''Chirp'' programming software, compatible on Windows, Linux and OSX (macOS).
- Group tones supported
The UV-50X3 supports CTCSS, DCS, and DTMF calling methods.
- RF power
High / mid or low RF power switchable from 5 up to 50 Watt.
