One is the regular recorder, recording for long periods in WAV format to the built-in CF memory or an external USB. memory. The sampling rate is variable from 8kHz (SQ1) to 48kHz (SHQ). In SQ1 mode, up to 130 minutes (approx.) of recorded audio can be stored into the CF memory. The other recorder is the short term voice recorder that saves the previous 15 seconds of radio audio into RAM, allowing you to play back the audio instantly. 2.
