M538-BS - Dakota Alert Two-Way Base Station
The Dakota Alert M538-BS is a base station MURS transceiver that will receive alert signals from the MURS Alert transmitter. It can also be used for two-way voice communications between other MURS transceivers. The M538-BS has five channels and 38 sub channels to help you communicate with other users. The M538-BS is powered by a plug-in transformer and is capable of communicating over distances of several miles.
The Dakota Alert M538-BS Two-Way Base Station is very simple to install. When an alert signal is received from the MURS Alert transmitter, the M538-BS will sound off with the voice of the alert signal, and will also display an alert icon as a visual cue that a signal has been received. In addition, the M538-BS is equipped with a normally open (N/O) relay output. The relay can be used to connect the base station to other existing systems such as alarm panels or doorbells. This has many different applications for small businesses, farmers, security guards or outdoorsmen. Anyone who needs to have real time monitoring and two-way voice communication will benefit from MURS system.
The M538-BS base station can also be used to communicate with the M538-HT hand-held radio. This allows someone in the house or shop to be in direct contact with someone out in the field. This allows a parent to keep track of the kids, or a supervisor to stay in touch with their employees.
MURS stands for Multi-Use Radio Service. The MURS frequencies are permitted to transmit at a higher wattage than Family Radio Service devices, which gives them ten times (or more) the possible range of FRS devices. The MURS products give you transmission distances of several miles, and are highly recommended for applications where there are a lot of obstructions such as trees, buildings, etc... The FCC also allows you to use MURS without a license. Although other radio services require a license, MURS is license-free.
