Product Focus – Vehicular Repeaters
Repeater system mounts in car trunk
The Trunking Gateway from Futurecom Systems Group is a vehicular repeater system mounted in the trunk of a car or in a fixed location within a building. It converts a multichannel trunking system into a single conventional channel. This coverage extension concept is embedded in the TETRA specifications and is available for other trunking radio systems, such as Smartnet and EDACS. The system operates like a trunking radio on the system side and as a conventional radio on the local portable side. It receives group and individual calls and retransmits them to the portable radio.
Repeater provides extended coverage
The SVR-200 from Pyramid Communications provides extended hand-held coverage by interfacing to existing high-power mobiles and repeating transmission in both directions. The repeater is PAC/RT-compatible, available in VHF, UHF and 800MHz versions, and works with conventional or trunking mobiles. It is available with remote channel selection and an auxiliary receiver. It has high-pass filters for use with low-band mobiles and pre-selector and notch filters for in-band VHF applications. The repeater offers dual PL tone decode and random sampling.
Repeater/base station features DSP
Kenwood Communications’ TKR-750/850 is a basic, self-contained 25W continuous duty rack-mount base station and repeater. It offers rear access to an external speaker output, accessory/logic controller connector (25 pin) and test-speaker-AUX connector (15 pin). It features wide/narrow channel spacing per channel and has programmable AUX input/output functions.
