    • Omni-directional Gain Antenna --- The high-efficiency Omni-directional high gain antenna cuts down on interference while using less power and maintaining a strong, reliable connection
    • Low Power Consumption --- The system is built using highly sensitive low power consumption components, maintaining high receiver sensitivity while consuming as little as one-tenth the power of a standard FM system, dramatically extending battery life.
