It comes with a hand-held electret microphone with channel selector and button to activate the automatic squelch .The built-in front microphone socket is a 6-pin and corresponds to the GDCH standard.
The unit is also programmable using an optional USB programming cable and software via the jack located on the rear panel.Although it looks like a standard USB cable it is NOT and using the wrong cable can damage the unit!.
The internal structure of the DR135 DX is extremely neat and tidy . all essential components are positioned in specially shielded metal enclosures .
The DR-135DX has a very clean receive. the receiver sensitivity is very good and the modulation is loud and clear.

The power is adjustable in all modes . the clarifier operates like the DX -5000 as a position switch . which is more beneficial but something you might have to get used to.
