Rugged HF Transciever


A wide variety of mobile and base station system configurations are offered with RF power levels up to 5000 W that include desktop and rackmounted systems with remote control and broadband or narrowband antenna systems. Models are available in either + 12 V DC or + 28 V DC for use in any type of vehicle and are fully protected against input power disturbances. The radios are waterproof and ruggedly built to meet the environmental specifications in MIL-STD-810D, E, and F for operation in harsh environments. The radios now include as standard a DSP-based voice enhancement module to enhance the received voice quality. Automatic BITE capability, with fault detection down to the module level, is standard in all RT7000s. BITE status messages are shown on the display to allow even unskilled operators to easily repair the radio at the field level.

A number of internal options are available for the RT7000 transceivers. For automatic selection of best channel and station-to-station linking, the RT7000 offers MIL-STD-188-141B automatic link establishment (ALE). Voice encryption, impulse noise blanking, and special data and CW filters are other embedded features that can easily be added to the standard transceiver.

A complete line of accessories are available for the RT7000 including RF booster amplifiers, antenna tuners, high-speed modems, rugged notebook computers, and HF E-mail and network management application software to provide comprehensive HF communications solutions. A variety of remote control options are offered including extended front panel control, long–range remote control and high-speed remote control.
