Anatech has been providing reliable radio communications to car clubs,
track organizers, cruisers, and off-roaders for over 10 years.
Trust Anatech to keep your group together.
All radios are programmed following Industry Canada / FCC regulations
having . . .
11 unique channels programmed for club privacy
5 channels programmed for consumer FRS/GMRS radio compatibility
(all 16 channels are actually FRS/GMRS frequencies and do not require a
license to use)
As product and pricing may change from year to year, please see the
above brochure for this year's specific car club and member promo.
What is the range of these radios?
Rule of thumb for any radio at these frequencies is 1 mile per 1 watt
(regardless of the typical consumer product
BS advertising of 30, 40, 50+ kms).
These are 5 watt commercial radios (max allowed for a portable), so on
with no obstructions can range about 5 miles / 7 kms.
Hills, buildings, etc will reduce this range.
Why doesn't the radio work very well
sitting on the floor of my car?
Anything metal will scatter or block the radio signal.
The best place for the radio is always above the body of the vehicle
(ie, the doors, etc).
What are the five FRS/GMRS compatible
The club radio channels 12 through 16 are hard-coded (channel & privacy code) as 12-28, 13-28, 14-28, 15-28, 16-28.
For those more technical, that's 467.6625, 467.6875, 467.7125,
462.5500, 462.5750, all using privacy code 173.8
Can these radios be used for other
Yes. Lots of members use them for camping or hunting. Even in the hotel
or sight-seeing when traveling with friends.
Are these radios waterproof?
No. We do have other models that are though.
Where can these radios be used?
These radios use the same unlicensed frequencies used by FRS/GMRS
radios and so can be used by anyone, anywhere throughout North America
without any license requirements.
Is there a shorter antenna?
Yes. But the shorter antenna reduces the range by about 20%.
Are there other speaker mics or audio
accessories than what's on the brochure?
Yes. Lots. Too many to list. If you are thinking of something specific,
Does Anatech charge HST or PST
for those outside of Alberta?
No. Being an Alberta company, we only charge GST, regardless of where a
radio may be shipped.
What forms of payment does Anatech
cash, cheque, EFT, credit card
However, because of the large promo discount, we will have to add a
flat $5 for credit card payments (instead of a higher 3% processing
Does Anatech charge shipping?
Again, because of the special promo discount, Anatech will add a
rate shipping charge depending on destination province.
