Digital license-free radio is a much more recent concept. Digital technology has broken new ground in two way radio, pushing performance, audio quality, signal range and feature sets to new heights. It has been mainly treated as a premium product. But with the arrival of license-free digital options, those benefits are now available at budget cost.
Hytera has been at the forefront of this new trend, adding a range of license-free handsets to its Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) range. The Hytera PD365 LF is one of these examples, an ultra-compact, modern-looking two way radio that delivers digital performance on a license-free budget.
Lightweight and portable
Weighing in at just 160g, the PD365 LF is designed for easy portability, fitting comfortably into a pocket for carrying around, and sitting easily in the palm of your hand for simple use on the go.
As well as being attractive and lightweight, it is also built to be durable and hard-wearing, with an IP54 rating for dust and water resistance, and military-grade standards for withstanding shock and vibration.
In terms of performance, the PD365 LF benefits from the enhanced audio quality and longer battery life standard with all digital two way radios these days. It will continue running on a single charge for 40% longer than equivalent analogue models, while audio benefits from digital noise reduction, improving clarity even when handsets are being used in noisy environments.
For a license-free two way radio, the PD365 LF boasts an impressive range of functions, including a 64-character screen and half-keypad, which allows users to send text messages. In line with most digital models these days, it offers three different call modes, broadcast, group and individual, meaning every call doesn’t have to be sent to every user on the network – you can target messages to specific groups or individuals for better efficiency and privacy.
Overall, the PD365 LF is a great introduction to the benefits of digital two way radio for those who are conscious about cost.
