Harris Introduces New Remote Control Unit For Its RF-3200 SSB Radio
New from Harris is a remote control device for its RF-3200 marine single sideband radio. Now you can mount the radio in one location and the remote control up to 125 feet away, with operation from either location The RF-3234 Remote Control Unit is now available as an optional accessory with the RF-3200. The package includes a remote control unit with built-in speaker, a mounting cradle with hardware, microphone, control cable and an interface circuit board for installation in the RF-3200 transceiver.
Front-panel controls on the RF- 3234 include channel and scan group selectors, scanning switch, squelch, clarifier, mode and noise blanker, as well as indicators showing system status. Operation of the remote control is similar to the RF- 3200, making it easy to learn and use.
The RF-3234 has a rugged, weather resistant housing that is designed for the harsh marine environment. The remote unit is less than 3-1/2 inches high, 8-3/4 inches wide and 5-1/2 inches deep. It weighs approximately 3-1/2 pounds, including the mounting frame. The RF-3200, introduced by Harris last year, is a 125-watt SSB radio, which pioneered a number of new features not previously available in any other marine SSBs. It was the first with single-knob tuning, the first with nine preprogrammable scan groups and the first with a single coaxial cable between the radio and antenna coupler. Harris Corporation, with sales of more than $2 billion, is a major supplier of information, communication and semiconductor systems, products and services to government and commercial markets worldwide. The RF-3200 is made by Harris's Long Range Radio Division, which is part of Harris RF Communications Group in Rochester, N.Y. The Long Range Radio Division is a world leader in the design, manufacture, installation and support of advanced FH, VHF and UHF radio equipment, turnkey systems and networks.
