Receiving an All Call

radio on the channel. It is used to make important
announcements requiring the user’s full attention.
When you receive an All Call, a tone sounds and the
LED blinks green.

does not wait for a predetermined time before ending.
If the Channel Free Indication feature is enabled,
you hear a short alert tone the moment the
transmitting radio releases the PTT button, indicating
the channel is now available for use.
