For those requiring an entry level portable with high visibility backlit-display and a no compromise build specification, the 255 channel HT9X3 is the most cost effective solution. From an established generation of commercial grade portables, the HT Series 2.0 is designed to operate in the most hostile environments and with its MIL-STD 810C/D/E/F construction and exceptionally loud audio, is the choice of the fire & rescue services and major blue-chip petrochem organisations worldwide.
Utilising the latest intelligent Lithium-Ion battery technology your HT9X3, if dealer enabled, will display a battery cycle count each and every time you power-on your radio. For your convenience it will even alert you to imminent battery life expiration.
Variable point voice scrambler, channel scanning, and local personal attack alarm are included as standard, with an optional Bluetooth communications facility. This low cost LCD entry level model will exceed the expectations of even the most experienced radio users.
VHF radios are suitable for use in more rural areas, where there are less large buildings likely to cause interference.
Submersible To IP68 (5 Metres For 1 Hour)
- Entel is the first manufacturer to offer the superior IP68 specification, whereby we ourselves determine at what depth and for how long our equipment must remain waterproof. Not content with just the standard IP67 entry-level (1 metre for 30 minutes) Entel's IP68 HT series is certified as waterproof-submersible to an unprecedented depth of 5 metres for 60 minutes.
- Aware that the smallest tolerances of case size and material variation alone could compromise your radio's waterproof integrity, uniquely, each individual Entel portable is tested on a custom-built air pressure test-jig to ensure it meets the exacting high standards we have set for ourselves.
- Meeting MIL-STD 810C/D/E/F commercial grade construction for tough, enduring performance, the Entel's HT and HX series 2.0 portables conform to stringent standards, enabling them to withstand the everyday rigours of shock, vibration and the corrosive effects of dust and moisture, ensuring many years of trouble free use in the most hostile environments.
1800mAh Li-Ion Battery
- All Entel portables come with the latest intelligent Lithium-Ion battery technology as standard. Whichever model you choose, these batteries will count the number of completed charge cycles, which on LCD variants, if dealer enabled, can be displayed when you power-on your radio.
- For your convenience it will even alert you to imminent battery life expiration. Another advantage of Lithium-Ion battery technology is the way it maximizes duty cycles, while the elimination of memory effect means there is no need to fully discharge the cells before recharging. Therefore you are assured a full duty cycle each and every time you take your radio from its charger.
Flash Upgradeable To Add Future Features
- Entel proposes to continuously add/upgrade features to its range of radios. Using Flash Upgrade technology your radios can be upgraded by your Dealer at any time.
Robust Accessory Socket
- A completely redesigned accessory connector, when secured to the portable, is designed to withstand any amount of punishment from dropping to careless misuse. Furthermore, the securing bolt incorporates a shearing point to protect the connector.
- The HT983 comes with 255 channels.
3-key Entry Model
- For those users looking for an entry level portable with minimum functionality, the 3 key model is ideal.
- LCD display variants offer more information and versatility. For example, the entry level with LCD will display channel names, battery charge count, receive signal strength indicator etc.
- The LCD versions allow your Dealer to "name" channels. Rather than just indicating a channel number your Entel radio can display "Security Channel" etc.
Multi-Function Encoder Control
- The encoder control fitted on top of our high tier range of radios provides: Volume control, channel change, navigate contact, status & message lists etc. In addition you can use the encoder to quickly navigate your user friendly menus.
- Both HT and HX series portables have the facility to scan for an active channel. When an active channel is found, the radio will automatically select that channel for you. Priority scan will allow you to select one channel in the scan list that is treated as a "Priority". It will be checked more frequently than all other channels in the list.
Voice Annunciation (Optional)
- Speaks the channel number and basic settings so you can operate the radio without having to look at it.
Bluetooth Wireless Communications (Optional)
- Allows you to connect a Bluetooth audio or data accessory.
Clone Data From One Radio To Another
- Allows you to easily configure another radio to match your system.
VOX Hands Free (With Audio Accessory)
- When you attach a VOX enabled audio accessory you can operate totally hands free. All you need to do is talk and your Entel radio will automatically transmit for you.
Programmable Channel Monitor Button
- If you have Analogue or Digital squelch enabled all signals other than your own will be filtered out. This can be temporarily disabled enabling you to monitor any other transmissions on your channel. This button may be programmed on or off by your Dealer.
Battery Charge Count
- Whichever model you choose, these batteries will count the number of completed charge cycles, which on LCD variants, if dealer enabled, can be displayed when you power-on your radio. For your convenience it will even alert you to imminent battery life expiration. If you opt for a system of non-display portables then we recommend that you have at least one model with a display in order to take advantage of this unique feature.
Receive Signal Strength Indicator
- Your Entel radio with LCD will display the strength of the signal it is receiving.
- Some radio systems use a "repeater" to increase the system's range. However when you go outside the range of the repeater, communication with another radio is not possible no matter how close you are. Talkaround enables you to talk directly with another radio, bypassing the repeater.
Programmable Scrambler (voice Inversion)(Optional)
- Used to encrypt your voice, protecting against casual eavesdropping.
Local Personal Attack Alarm
- All HT and HX portables include a personal attack alarm option. Once activated the speaker of your radio will emit a high pitched siren as a deterrent and provides a local call for assistance.
