  • Multi-lingual Display supports English, French, German, Spanish and more!
  • 4 programmable keys provide one-touch operations.
  • Radio check, Remote monitor, Call alert, Permanent-monitoring, Transmit interrupt, Stun / Kill / Revive and more!

Up to 1024 channels of frequency memory are available for the user’s service, operability in a wide temperature range from -40 to +85 gr . Ability to work with MDC-1200 signaling. MDC (Motorola Digital Control).

Base radio station is equipped with a large backlit LCD that displays all the necessary information about the operating status of the transceiver. At night, the backlight of the DR-D18 station will not distract the user.

Alinco DR-D18Transceiver operates in packet mode. Mobile station allows you to save frequencies in 1024 memory channels, with the function of storing basic settings. The Japanese radio station DR-D18 includes the possibility of expanded work with subgroups, with the connection of a GPS receiver, and a dedicated channel for the alarm mode make this magnificent station multifunctional and practical.

The ability to go on the air, both in digital and analogue mode, expands the capabilities of the Alinco DR-D18 mobile radio and will ensure a smooth transition of your existing fleet of communications equipment to the new digital format, which gives undeniable advantages in communication range, energy efficiency of the battery power, as well as high sound quality and confidentiality of the conversation made between the subscribers on the air.

The Alinco DR-D18 radio features programmable channel scan functions, with the option to skip unused channels. In scan mode, empty memories are excluded from the scan cycle. This significantly increases the scanning speed, especially when the channel memory expansion card is installed .

In the mode of smooth selection of the working frequency (VFO) in the Alinco DR D18 radio station, you can set the step: 5 kHz, 10 kHz, 12.5 kHz, 15 kHz, 20 kHz, 25 kHz. Built-in encoder / decoder CTCSS, DCS will allow you to block unauthorized calls from listening and build selective calling systems among groups of radio stations Alinco. The transceiver is equipped with a connector for connecting an external TNC controller.
