Midland presents the new version of the ALAN 42 model

The portable CB transceiver ALAN 42 DS.

It is equipped with digital squelch and ANL filters and Noise Blanker that eliminate disturbances caused by external sources or by the vehicle.

ALAN 42DS maintains the same functions as the former Alan 42: it is a multistandard device that allows you to select any European band and operate in all EU countries. The digital squelch is the automatic squelch regulation that avoids the use of manual regulation; it is automatically activated according to the received input signal; the Noise Blanker and ANL filters, on the other hand, improve the sound and make it cleaner, eliminating disturbances caused by external sources or by the vehicle, such as ignition noise. Among the various functions it is equipped with, we report the EMG function for the immediate selection of the emergency channel, the high and low power (4W / 1W) selectable, the SCAN and Dual Watch functions.
