    What is the check box setting in the programming software for the rt82 that says “Two channel” under general settings? What does this do?

    1. Two-channel means it can receive two channels of calls. If two signals come at the same time, only one can be received.

    2. I came here looking for an answer for this as well. From my anecdotal testing, it seems that switching this on will allow the radio to receive two signals at the same time. The radio is always dual watch, so it can always monitor two channels, but will typically only allow one to be received at a time. After switching this on, I noticed that frequently a signal would come in very distorted from one channel. I think that means that there was a transmission on both channels and it caused interference. I’m not sure why you would want this setting, or what its true purpose is, but that appears to be the actual functionality of it. After turning it back off, the issue went away. There may be a better way to configure a radio to make better use of this functionality for what its intended to do, but I’m not quite experienced enough to know what that would be.

    1. Hi, you can still download the software from our website, search the RT84 product page, then choose the support, then find firmware/software to download.
