DVSI AMBE+2 Version 1.60 Vocoder
The vocoder is what encodes voice picked up by the microphone for transmission. Analog voice signal from the microphone is converted to a digital string to transmit to other radios, the radios receiving the digital string then convert the code to Analog voice to be heard out of the speaker. The vocoder also removes background noise from the voice transmissions for clear communications. For public safety personel like firefighters and police officers the vocoder is an important part of a radio not to be overlooked. The vocoder on a fire radio is especially important because of background noises like sirens, chainsaws, fire, trucks, engines, etc. Even if you don't know what a vocoder is you are counting on the vocoder in your fire radio to pick your voice out from the background noise and encode it for transmission, so that the person receiving your transmission can hear you, instead of all that background noise. The BK Radio KNG Command includes the most up to date vocoder available, so that you can count on your fire radio.

I am a COMT for the USFS and this is the best BK Radio I have ever used. Relm took there time in the design and paid attention to detail when they made these. User friendly, Keypad Programmable, Simplified User interface. If you can use a smartphone you will have no issue field programming or using this radio. Definitely worth the money...
