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
  • Expansion port – Thanks to the built-in expansion port, the MD785 can be expanded by additional functions

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.

RSGB Amateur Radio Survey

The Radio Society of Great Britain is inviting all UK radio amateurs to complete an online questionnaire

The survey will be available until the end of 2015, and an anonymous analysis of the data will be published on the RSGB website with a summary in RadCom sometime in the first quarter of 2016.

Tackling Pirate Radio London

A North London Borough (Council) is adopting a new approach to eliminate the issue of Pirate Radio, hoping to save up to £1 million if rolled out without the whole of London.

Haringey Council, in conjunction with Homes for Haringey, have changed their to enforcement, and have saved £90,000 in Policing and repair costs, by focusing on the sites used by Pirate Radio.

Employees target known locations that provide the perfect conditions for broadcast, high rise building, where the enforcement teams find transmitters installed on rooftops or hidden in lift shafts. Often the equipment is poorly installed, potential a risk to people from falling equipment or frequency interference.

The prompt removal of illegal broadcast equipment is removing the harm for people and building, reducing costs, and is also providing a cleaner band for the emergency services to broadcast within,

If this approach is adopted by the whole of London, the savings could be as much as one million pounds.

Clive Corrie, Head of Ofcom’s Spectrum Enforcement team, said: “Illegal broadcasting harms local communities and risks lives by interfering with vital communications used by the emergency services and air traffic control.

“By working in partnership with local authorities, Ofcom is tackling this problem. We also strongly urge those broadcasting illegally to get involved with internet or community radio, a legitimate route on to the airwaves.”

Astrid Kjellberg-Obst, Executive Director of Operations at Homes for Haringey, said: “Pirate radio stations damage people’s homes and can be extremely distressing to our residents.

“We’ve seen huge success in tackling the problem with the measures that we’ve introduced, removing all pirate radio stations from Haringey and saving the borough tens of thousands of pounds in the process. We will continue to work with Ofcom to keep Haringey pirate-free.”

Ofcom offers accessible, legal alternatives to get onto the airwaves. Since 2005, Ofcom has issued community radio licenses, enabling small stations across the UK to get on-air right and serve their local communities. More than 200 community radio services are now broadcasting.

Ofcom is also supporting a new, innovative way for smaller stations to broadcast on digital radio. If tests are successful the system, called ‘small scale DAB’, promises to open up digital radio to smaller broadcasters for a fraction of current costs.
