Squad Radios

Datron offers two versions of its popular Squad Radios offering the high quality performance found in tactical manpacks while weighing less than 2.5 lbs/1.1 kgs. The PRC1070-5 and PRC1080-5 are portable VHF/FM radios covering the 30 to 88 MHz band. Each radio offers 5W of output power with 2 user-selectable levels of 100mW and 5W. Designed for the foot soldier operating in harsh, squad mission environments, each radio is waterproof and tested in MIL-STD-810.

PRC1080-5 has built-in full or partial-band frequency hopping and digital encryption. The PRC1070-5 is upgradeable to both frequency hopping and encryption by the addition of a single module.
