Set consists of RF13 transceiver (with built-in digital scrambler) and accessories. The portable transceiver set is used for phonic communication or data transmission in 30 MHz to 88 MHz frequency range. It also features voice encryption mode, selective communication, broadcasting of short encoded messages, up to 9 preset channels, automatic preset channels scanning, and controlling of most functions from the handset. The supplied types of antennas and adjustable output power make it suitable for use in many situations. Both rechargeable battery packs secure a standard round-the-clock operation. All components of the set are placed in a bag. The set is carried and operated by one person. For more details on RF13 transceiver and other set components see relevant pages of this website.
