RELM Introduces KNG P25
According to the company the KNG M150, operating in the VHF frequency band (136-174MHz), joins its portable counterparts in addressing the requirements of government and public safety professionals. It offers an array of features, including touch-screen operation, and exceptional durability.
The M150 is also available in a 100-watt high-power configuration that extends the radio's reach with superior signal strength. As with all models in the KNG line, the M150 will be upgradeable to P25 Trunking.
The company said that the APCO Project 25 (P25), which requires interoperability among compliant equipment regardless of the manufacturer, was established by the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials and is approved by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The shift toward interoperability gained momentum as a result of significant communications failures during events such as the 9/11 attacks and Hurricane Katrina. RELM was one of the manufacturers to develop P25-compliant technology.
David Storey, president and CEO of RELM, said: "We are pleased with the progress of our KNG development program. The M150 is a welcome addition as the first mobile radio in the KNG line of P25 products. The features and functionality of the M150 respond to the feedback of professional government and public safety radio users, and incorporate leading technology such as touch-screen operation. Additional new mobile models in the UHF and 800MHz are anticipated later this year and next year."
