French term or phrase: en fréquences et adresses
Description of a radio control unit:

Emetteur et récepteur fréquence paramétrable par les joysticks en fréquences et adresses, aucune intervention nécessaire sur le récepteur.

I get as far as "transmitter and and receiver frequencies configurable using the joysticks..." but then the next section throws me a bit.

Thanks

Explanation:
Until I looked at the source document (Internet), I thought perhaps the unit might have Internet access (addresses) as well as radio communication (frequencies). But the source document gives no mention of Internet (or other, e.g. e-mail) connection so I don't think this can be it.

I would tend to agree with Charles's assessment - and then a little 'lateral thinking' leads me to 'channels', which is a frequently used term in radio communications.

Example sentence(s):
  • Aviation voice radios use VHF AM. AM is used so that multiple stations on the same *channel* can be received.
