Tips for use

  • There are usually some radio settings that need changing before the memory buttons will function – look for “external keypad” in the radio manual for details.
  • Do not connect two microphones at the same time. If connecting a microphone via the ContestConsole, use either the 3.5mm socket or the 8 pin socket, not both.
  • On some radios, an external storage device (memory card or USB stick) might be needed for voice memories to work.
