Welcome to the guide for using the Midland G7/G7E Pro. In this article, we will provide you with detailed instructions on how to operate and maximize the functionality of this versatile communication device.
Midland G7/G7E Pro combines the most advanced technology in radio communication with extreme reliability. This brand new transceiver, with its eye-catching design and sturdy mechanical frame is the ideal solution for both the professionals who need to stay in touch with colleagues (construction sites, buildings, hotels, trade fairs, shows) or with leisure users that just want to keep up with friends and family
Coverage (referred to PMR frequency band)
The maximum range depends on terrain condition and is obtained during use in an open space. The only limitation to maximum possible range are environmental factors such as blockage caused by trees, buildings, or other obstructions. Inside a car or a metallic construction, the range can be reduced. Normally the coverage in the city, with buildings or other obstructions is about 1 or 2 Km. In open space but with obstructions like trees, leaves or houses the maximum possible range is about 4-6 Km. In open space, without obstructions and in sight, like for example in a mountain, the coverage can be more than 12 Km.

Understanding the basic operation of the Midland G7/G7E Pro is essential for seamless communication. Here are the key steps for basic operation:
To turn on the transceiver, turn the VOLUME knob clockwise until you hear it click: the LCD display will light up and do an Auto-Test. Subsequently you will hear 2 beeps of different tones. To turn off the transceiver, turn the knob counter-clockwise until you hear another click.
Adjust the volume using the VOLUME knob to achieve your desired level. Turn the knob VOLUME to about half way and adjust it to a comfortable level as soon as you receive a signal. If you do not receive a signal you can use the button MON/SCAN.
Transmission and reception
Press and hold the PTT button to transmit your voice. The PTT key has a dual function, as it is composed by two parts: a bigger PTT and a red one, smaller, identified with “boost”. When you press the bigger PTT the transceiver transmits with high or low power (depending on the setting of the MENU: H or L); while the smaller PTT (Boost) always transmits with high power.
1. Make sure that no one else is currently talking on the selected channel;
2. Keep button PTT firmly pressed: TX will appear on the display;
3. Before you start talking wait for a fraction of a second then speak normally, in the direction of the microphone, and hold the device at a distance of about 5 cm.
4. When you have finished, release the PTT: TX will disappear from the display;
5. When the radio is in reception mode (PTT not pressed) you will automatically receive any communication (RX displayed).
During transmission and reception try, as far as possible, to keep the antenna in vertical position and to avoid obstacles towards the direction of the other party
Use the MENU button to access the channel selection feature. The number of the channel will start flashing on the display. Press the scroll buttons / to scroll up or down the PMR and then LPD channels till you select the desired channel. Press the PTT button to confirm, or wait for 10 seconds.
CTCSS/DCS tones selection
Midland G7/G7E Pro can receive in two modes:
a. Open traffic: in this case you will hear any communication transmitted on the selected channel;
b. Group mode CTCSS/DCS: CTCSS/DCS tones are access keys that allow you to receive only messages coming from parties using the same channel and code. The speaker will remain muted until the correct tone is received.
MON button (Monitor)
The Monitor button is for temporarily excluding (opening) the squelch, in order to listen to signals that are too weak to keep the squelch permanently opened. By excluding the squelch you will avoid listening to the communication “chopped” by the squelch.
Midland G7/G7E Pro enables hands free conversations through VOX function. You can enable VOX function with or without accessories. G7 Pro is supplied with 3 different VOX selections:
• VOX standard (Vo on the display)
• VOX baby-sitting (Vb on the display)
• VOX Bike (Vc for motorbikers)
VIBRACALL function for alerts in high-noise areas
Midland G7/G7E Pro is equipped with the “Vibra-Call” feature, which provides a vibration for incoming calls.
ROGER BEEP (End transmission tone)
Every time you end transmission (PTT released), Midland G7/G7E Pro gives out a sound that indicates to the other party that s/he can start talking. This function is factory disabled.
