The TX6500S 5 watt handheld IP67* UHF CB radio is GME’s powerhouse 477 MHz UHF and the only handheld radio designed and manufactured exclusively in Australia. This radio is rated IP67 water and dust proof, is built rugged with a diecast aluminium chassis and has a 20 hour battery life* to operate in temperatures of -20 to +60°C. The TX6500S is bred with GME DNA and features ScanSuiteTM – a new unique GME technology that enables seamless uninterrupted conversation even on congested channels.

20 hour operating time using low output power. Based on 5% transmitting, 5% receiving and 90% waiting mode

faster, smarter scanning

ScanSuite™ enables seamless uninterrupted conversation with a group of like radios, and skips nuisance signals whilst continually scanning memory channels.

TurboScan – enables a radio to scan all 80 channels in under 2 seconds. 

NetworkScan – allows radios to have uninterrupted communication by dynamically switching to unused channels. NetworkScan scans for other radios that share the same CTCSS or DCS tone. When a NetworkScan radio detects a signal with no code or the wrong code, radios in the network scan group will switch to another channel to continue transmitting and receiving. This allows for NetworkScan enabled radios to continually communicate without interruption.

AutoSkip – when scanning in Open or Group Scan a radio may continuously stop on nuisance channels. These channels may be temporarily skipped or removed from the scan cycle without deleting from the scan memory.
