to enter specific frequency click 6 numbers like in this video
or use presets , two digit codes 3.2-3.8 for channels 2-8 FRS or PMR if beacon shipped to Europe. Code 3.1 sets previously stored custom frequency, you can switch between presets and custom frequency anytime.

in the last 3 months those asked for no mic version got same regular beacon just without mic.and some resistors and capacitors so there is power saving without constantly connected mic. susch beacons must use menu entry 1,x where x stands for multiplies of 20-25 minutes, enter 1.2 (default) for 40-50minutes startup delay.
Beacons w/mic. don't need startup delay because mic. blocks TX as soon as motor starts

I'll update instructions soon.
Good info, can I change frequencies to a custom one? lets say example 920.210mhz?
