|Codan NGT SRx|
9780is a HF transceiver built by the Australian company Codan Pty Ltd ©.
It was developed for use in the Australian bush.
It is s synthesized radio, operated by the operational elements on the front, or by buttons on the microfone.
A central microprozessor controls all functions, like Clarifier, emergency call etc. All these functions are standard.
The radio also can be operated by a remote control panel.
Frequencies and options can be programmed using a IBM- compatible computer.
The backlit display shows all operational frequencies and modes.
The AF output is reduced to 10W at a high SWR.
Channels can be stored in simplex or 2-frequency-simplex.
Channels can be moved to different channel places; also receive- channels only can be programmed.
Up to 10 channels can be scanned.
Using a special cable, options and frequenciec can be cloned vie the microphone socket.
The TRX is built as a channel- only radio, which limits its use asa HAM radio. Any receive frequency can be chosen by clarifier, by pushing PTT the TRX jumps back to the last used channel frequency. This specimen, however, has a freescroll option which overrides the channel function. Now all frequencies can be tuned, and the TRX is a an excellent Ham transceiver.
