TX3500 DSP Compact UHF radio

  

A trusted compact radio, built for the harsh Australian climate

The latest in Digital Signal Processing Technology ensures the TX3500 offers superior performance and features compared to radios which use conventional analogue technology.
Simple, practical and affordable the compact, rugged TX3500 is ideally suited to harsh operating environments. The unique slide in mounting cradle makes installation simple and the solid die cast chassis is built to last.
With the introduction of the narrow band 80 Channel UHF CB service in 2011, the GME TX3500/TX4500 series represent the first Australian radios specifically designed to the new ACMA standard. Fully engineered and manufactured in Australia with a host of evolutionary features newly developed by GME's highly experienced two-way radio R & D team. Industry firsts that not only differentiate the GME brand from the competition, but take advantage of the latest digital technology to ensure ease of operation and optimum performance across all 80 channels.
Unique and practical benefits include GME's Full Spectrum Backlighting, the amazing, interference suppressing Advanced Signal Management System, the highly effective Dynamic Volume Control and voice inversion scrambling options.
