Amateur radio (also called ham radio) is the use of designated radio frequency spectra for purposes of private recreation, non-commercial exchange of messages, wireless experimentation, self-training, and emergency communication. The term “amateur” is used to specify persons interested in radio technique solely with a personal aim and without direct monetary or other similar reward, and to differentiate it from commercial broadcasting, public safety (such as police and fire), or professional two-way radio services (such as maritime, aviation, taxis, etc.).

The amateur radio service (amateur service and amateur satellite service) is established by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) through the International Telecommunication Regulations. National governments regulate technical and operational characteristics of transmissions and issue individual stations licenses with an identifying call sign. Prospective amateur operators are tested for their understanding of key concepts in electronics and the host government’s radio regulations. Radio amateurs use a variety of voice, text, image, and data communications modes and have access to frequency allocations throughout the RF spectrum to enable communication across a city, region, country, continent, the world, or even into space.

Amateur radio is officially represented and coordinated by the International Amateur Radio Union (IARU), which is organized in three regions and has as its members the national amateur radio societies which exist in most countries. According to an estimate made in 2011 by the American Radio Relay League, two million people throughout the world are regularly involved with amateur radio.[1] About 830,000 amateur radio stations are located in IARU Region 2 (the Americas) followed by IARU Region 3 (South and East Asia and the Pacific Ocean) with about 750,000 stations. A significantly smaller number, about 400,000, are located in IARU Region 1 (Europe, Middle East, CIS, Africa).

Hytera MD785/785G DMR Digital UHF VHF Radio

User-centered Design The large-size color display allows good visibility even under extremely strong light. And the seven programmable keys facilitate your communication in various conditions. Reliable Quality Hytera MD785/785G is strictly compliant with MIL-STD-810 C/D/E/F and IP54 standards, ensuring outstanding performance even under harsh environments. Superior..

This DMR mobile radio offers versatile digital functions and solid loud audio. With its ergonomic design, its easy to operate user menu system and its remarkable build quality, this is the ideal solution for all your DMR needs; whether it is mobile vehicle mounted operation, or for use in the shack.

  • Excellent voice transmission – Thanks to the simultaneous application of narrow band codecs and digital error correction, the Hytera MD785 offers you an outstanding audio quality in loud environments and in fringe areas of the repeater coverage
  • Dual mode – The Hytera MD785 features an analogue as well as a digital mode and is compatible with the currently used analogue repeater systems, thereby simplifying your transition into the digital age. This also means you don’t need to have two radios, have analogue and digital all in one.
  • Improved use of the radio spectrum – Thanks to the TDMA process the MD785 allows an assignment of the available bandwidth with double channel capacity. This results in a clear relief of the increasing spectrum scarcity
  • Secure communications – Besides the built-in encryption based on digital technology, the MD785 features advanced encryption options, e.g. 256-bit encryption and a scrambler function (optional)
  • Reliability and quality – The MD785 complies with the standards MIL-STD-810C/D/E/F/G and the degree of protection IP54 and offers a high degree of reliability even in rough environments
  • Versatile functionality – Besides the classic communication functions, the MD785 features numerous additional digital and optional functions, including text messages, individual calling and a lone worker function

1034_1047_2 1034_1048_3The ANAN-200D is The most powerful Amateur Radio Transceiver available today, it builds on the very successful OpenHPSDR Hermes and the Apache Labs Angelia designs and offers unprecedented performance/functionality not available in any other HF/6M radio transceiver.

There are many firsts that the ANAN-200D/Orion introduces in the HF radio space, like the ANAN-100D this is a dual phase coherent receive system with an extremely robust and sensitive front end and opens up possibilities of applications such as Diversity reception.

All major controls and settings such as PTT/Mic/Bias/External reference switching is under software control or automated, hence this is an ideal platform for those who would like a consumer plug & play SDR solution.

The ANAN-200D/Orion has been designed keeping in mind advanced applications and uses the largest FPGA in any commercially available Amateur Radio SDR, the current implementation uses less than 35% of the resources and has more than adequate headroom for the future applications.
