   * Calling Channels (PSTN to mobile) 051, 052, 081, 092, 121 and 151. Scan only these channels for incoming calls.
   Selective beacon facility is available at all bases.
   Choosing a base and channel : The choice of a suitable channel is determined by distance and the time of day. Higher frequencies are required in the middle of the day and for longer distances, lower frequencies at night and for shorter distances.
   The closest base may not provide the best communications.
   Use the beacon call facility to test a channel before making a call and remember that, if your first choice is unsuitable, there are multiple bases. As each base is only capable of handling one call at a time, it is possible that a base is busy on a channel that you cannot hear. Under these conditions the base will not respond to a beacon call until the telephone call is finished. (Wait a few minutes and try again).
   If a channel is in use, please wait until it is free or choose another channel.
