KNG-P150CMD, Command, Digital APCO P25, VHF, BK Portable Radio
BENDIX KING KNG-P150CMD COMMAND VERSION DIGITAL PORTABLE RADIO
Replaced by KNG2-P150CMD
The KNG-P150 CMD is the newest radio made for Calfire. This radio comes with 5000 Channels and 100 programmable quick call ID's. This radio also has a state of the art vocoder which 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 personnel 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.
