AT PRC-3088 series transceivers are available in two modifications in analoque and digital.AT PRC-3088 is analog radio and AT PRC-3088D is Digital radio with recording/playing function.
AT PRC-3088 VHF Handheld Transceiver is modern tactical radio designed for military environments. The AT PRC-3088 is fully compatible with legacy VHF radios such as the AN/PRC-77 or AN/VRC-12. It provides reliable voice and data communications over the entire military band of 30 to 88MHz in 12 or 25KHz steps. The AT PRC-3088 is capable of communicating in voice and data modes and is able to secure communications with an in-built scrambler. The AT PRC-3088 has selectable tone signaling and contains 3 scanning options. The AT PRC-3088 has passed independent environmental testing to Mil-Std 810 and to Mil-Std-461C to assure reliability and durability.
AT PRC-3088D is the latest genaration VHF handheld radio (Analog/Digital Dual Mode) developed in 2005 for tactical environments. It is fully compatible with the old generation radios (in Analog mode) such as AN/PRC-77 or AN/VRC-12 but it provide more reliable services meets MIL-STD requirements and strict envirimental standards.
The AT PRC-3088 series transceivers delivers low cost of ownership, and meet the most demanding user requirements. The AT PRC-3088 is backed by worldwide warranty support.
Full Military Band
The AT PRC-3088 offers handheld tactical communications in the full military frequency range of 30-88MHz. There are 2321 available channels with 25KHz steps as well as optional 12KHz step mode offering a total of 4642 available channels
Up to 10 channels are can be programmed in to memory. This includes tone, output power and scrambler settingsindividually programmable for each channel.
CTCSS and DCS Tone Signalling
In addition to 150Hz tone signalling there is a built in 38 CTCSS (Continuous Tone Code Squelch System) and 83 DCS (Digital Code Squelch) system available for communications group set up.
Built in flash for recording/playing function (only in PRC-3088D)
Recording is available both in analog and digital mode. Press "1" or "2" to go to play next or previous section. If the section is last one, it will go back to play the first section. The recording time of each section is approximately 1 minute.
The AT PRC-3088 has a whisper mode which allows amplification of voice input for covert operation
A convenient front panel keypad allows access to commonly used functions as well as advanced function menus. Frequency can be selected via direct frequency selection.
The AT PRC-3088 is an advanced data radio capable of communications between computers. An RS2323 connection is available between radio and computer.
Built in Dynamic Antenna Matching Circuit
Enables various antenna lengths to be deployed on the AT PRC-3088 without tuning for each frequency.
The AT PRC-3088 can provide simple field configurable range extension using the repeater capability.
Radios can be conveniently programmed using a PC configuration software module.
A programmable LCD backlight is provided for night operations.
