QPT1

VHF Narrow Band FM 2 Watt multi channel transmitter

Frequency:Standard: 144.000 - 144.775MHz

The QPT transmitter module offers a 2 watt RF output VHF radio link, in either a robust aluminium extruded casing, or a smaller footprint PCB mounted shield can. This unit is ideally suited to applications where existing lower powered transmitters provide insufficient range. The QPT1 transmitter is a multi-channel, narrowband design, suitable for licensed and unlicensed VHF allocations, FCC part 90 operation, and the 2M amateur band. Together with a matching LMR1 or RX1M receiver a one-way radio data link can be achieved over a distance of well over 10km (with a suitable antenna).
