URC-300 Line of Sight (LOS) Transceiver

Redefining Software Defined

The new URC-300™ Line-of-Sight Transceiver is specifically designed to improve ground-to-air communications and has the flexibility to be updated as new technology becomes available. The URC-300 has a similar user-friendly interface as the URC-200™ (V2) and is built with a software-based architecture which makes it easier for users to customize their radio to fit their mission needs. Current features include:

  • Significant RF performance over the URC-200 (V2) for clearer communications in congested environments
  • Software-defined architecture designed specifically for future customizable enhancements
  • VHF/UHF AM Voice (FM optional)
  • ETSI EN 300 676-1 compliant for 8.33kHz and 25 kHz
  • Smaller and lighter than the URC-200 (V2)

 

Highly Versatile & Easy To Use

The URC-300 is a software-based customizable Line of Sight platform that improves ground-to-air communications and enables future enhancements.

  • VHF and UHF AM capability provides interoperability with a variety of RF systems
  • Adaptable to many applications, including manpack, rackmount, vehicular and intercom
  • All frequencies are easy to set with access via the front-panel control presets and web-based GUI

Additional Features
