On radios that are not crypto-capable, this switch may either be missing, or might be used to select between channel banks. At the left side of the radio are a number of recessed buttons. At the top is the squelch button, which allows the squelch (noise cancellation) to be open for as long as the button is depressed. Keeping it depressed for more than 3 seconds, will permanently open the squelsh. In the middle is the (large) Push-To-Talk (PTT) switch. The radio transmits as long as this button is depressed. The radio can be programmed to send an identification at the start of a transmission.
Below the PTT are two small buttons for Repeater Access Tones (RAT). They can only be used if the radio has version 6D or later of the CORE firmware. On older versions of the CORE, such as the common 5D, they will not work. On early case variants the RAT buttons were omitted.
Models There are several series of SABER radios, that are compatible and interoperable to some extent. This page only deals with the SABER I, II and III (and the European ), but not with some of the later analogue and digital trunking systems.

Variants Many different versions and variants of the SABER radio, have been made over the years, for a variety of frequency ranges. Used SABER held-helds are often found in surplus stores and on auction sites such as Ebay. As it is often difficult to tell which models you are dealing with, the description below can be used as a guide. Luckily, the frequency band and a number of features can be deduced from the that is normally present on a label at the back.
