The The M538-BS is a 2-way radio transceiver designed for use with the Dakota Alert MURS based alerts. This base station has five channels and thirty-eight subchannels for communication with other users, over several miles (depending on terrain).
You are allowed to operate this two way base station with a license. The M538-BS plugs into a standard wall outlet through an included transformer.
A radio alert is sent from a Dakota Alert MURS based transmitter. Once the base station receives the radio signal, it chimes and also displays an icon in the LCD window letting you know a signal has been received. The base station also comes with a “Normally ON” (NO) relay that can be used for add on devices such as an alarm panel, door chime, strobe light, siren, and many others.
The M538-BS also communicates with the Dakota Alert M538-HT or hand held transceiver. This is also a two way radio. You can communicate two way with the other transceivers allowing you to communicate with other users on the system. This system has a range of several miles which gives you added flexibility and usage.
*Actual range will vary depending on the local terrain.
