Dedicated Channel 16 keys enable instant access to the emergency channel, and are included on both the radio’s front panel and its four-button fist mic.

Class D DSC Approved - Class D DSC compliant for automated distress calling, including position when connected to a compatible GPS receiver.

All International Channels - The Link-6 is designed for global use and supports all international channels including USA and Canada.

My Channel Mode - Select your favorite channels for quick and easy access. A long press on the channel dial enters My Channel Mode, where you can cycle through just your selected favourites using the rotary channel dial.

Multiple Scan Modes - Scan through all available channels or just your selected favourites. In either scan mode, emergency channels can optionally be given priority to reduce the chance of missing distress calls or other urgent safety messages.
