  Grintek TR-178B

is built by Grinel © in South Africa. It is a HF SSB manpack with extreme features:

  • It's size is very small.,
  • it has a big frequency range (0.3 .. 30 MHz) and
  • and a scope of functions. So, for example,
    ** Frequency hopping and
    ** ALE are built in; also
    ** digital speech processing and
    ** whisper- mode.

    It works with a voltage of 9 .. 32V, leading to a HF output of 10 W @ 12 V; and
    25 W @ 24 V.
    Frequency hopping and ALE are possible, when the ATU AT 241 is used .
