Better Flexible Support: Analog, Digital and Mixed Modes

The EVX-R70 conventional repeater operates on both analog and digital modes. It can also be used with any existing analog two-way radios. For flexible support, the EVX-R70 includes “mixed mode” to switch dynamically between analog and digital modes.

Better Compatibility and Efficiency

eVerge™ digital radios that operate with the Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) protocol are compatible with more than 74% of the digital radios deployed worldwide. Thanks to greater spectrum and power efficiency, eVerge™ TDMA digital radio systems can now support twice as many talking groups and calls without more licensing costs, thus lowering total equipment costs, compared with those operating with the FDMA protocol.

Consistent Great Performance

Get 100% continuous duty at 45 Watt VHF and 40 Watt UHF for easy integration into most repeater sites. The digital radio includes integrated power supply with connector for optional external DC battery backup.

Multicoloured LED Status Indicator

eVerge™ portable digital radios are fitted with LED indicators to enable easy monitoring of repeater status. Status indicators include: power, digital/analog mode, repeater disabled, transmit analog/digital mode by slot, and receive analog/digital mode by slot.
