IP Site Connect
This feature allows your radio to extend conventional
communication beyond the reach of a single site, by
connecting to different available sites which are
connected via an Internet Protocol (IP) network.
When the radio moves out of range from one site and
into the range of another, it connects to the new site's
repeater to send or receive calls/data transmissions.
Depending on your settings, this is done
automatically or manually.
If the radio is set to do this automatically, it scans
through all available sites when the signal from the
current site is weak or when the radio is unable to
detect any signal from the current site. It then locks
on to the repeater with the strongest Received Signal
Strength Indicator (RSSI) value.
