URC-200 (V2) With 30/90 MHz Frequency Enhancement

END OF LIFE NOTICE

Since 1993, General Dynamics Mission Systems has delivered over 12,000 URC-200 Line-of-Sight (LOS) Radios worldwide. Over the last twenty-five years, this very successful product has shown a fielded MTBF of over 91,000 hours.

Due to component availability issues and technology advancements General Dynamics Mission Systems has decided to end the production of this product sometime between October – December 2022. 

Orders will be accepted as long as General Dynamics Mission Systems has finished goods available. 

Building on the success of our URC-200 product, our new URC-300 line-of-sight transceiver is the replacement product that improves ground-to-air communications and is specifically designed to enable customizable future enhancements to fit your mission.


General Dynamics URC-300 Transceiver

The New URC-300 Line-of-Sight Transceiver

Our new URC-300® line-of-sight transceiver is smaller and lighter than the URC-200 with significantly improved RF performance. The URC-300 is 25kHz and 8.33kHz ETSI Compliant to provide clearer communications in congested environments and was recently selected by the FAA for their emergency air traffic control communications.

Features

General Dynamics' versatile, field-proven URC-200 (V2) provides Line-of-Sight capabilities for vehicular, airborne, fixed-site or portable applications. For commercial, civilian or military users, the 30-90 MHz frequency enhancement virtually eliminates the need for additional radios, batteries, microphones, etc., and allows one radio to provide all communication needs. The frequency expansion also provides:

  • Access to the 30-400 MHz VHF/UHF communications band
  • Access to the VHF tactical FM band between 30 and 90 MHz
  • Compatibility with SINCGARS radios in the non-frequency hopping mode

General Dynamics’ versatile URC-200 (V2) transceivers are the clear choice for vehicular, airborne, fixed-site and portable applications. Line-of-Sight (LOS) radio operators can access the entire VHF/UHF communications band with the addition of the frequency expansion for the URC-200 (V2) multi-band, multi-mode radios. The expansion provides access to the VHF tactical FM band between 30 and 90 MHz, and eliminates the need for additional radios, batteries, microphones, etc. One lightweight, low cost radio provides full communication access for commercial, civilian or military users. With the addition of the tactical FM band, the URC-200 (V2) allows for:

  • Compatibility with SINCGARS radios in the non-frequency hopping mode
  • Fully compatible frequency presets
  • Elimination of multiple-radio compatibility problems
  • Low cost, high reliability
  • Multi-band voice on both civilian and military frequencies at rates up to 16 kb/s
  • Remote control capability
  • Ease of use with front panel programmable frequencies
