PRC-2000 ( also known as Callpack RT-2000 )The casing is made of diecast Aluminium.
It is watertight for 2 hours, immersed into 1 meter of water.
The modular circuits are on glass-expoxy.
The complete radio is CPU controlled.
All settings are made by up/down buttons.s LCD- Feld.
The built in antenna tuner tunes only whip antennas. If you use other antennas, like vehicle or wire antennas,
the BNC / BNC-link between transceiver and tuner is removed, and the antenna is connected directly to the radio output.
It has a built in speech processor.
A special handset can operate nine of the ten memory channels.
It can be remote controlled from up to 3 km distance.
Ample accessories may be ordered.
was built in Great Britain by M.E.L. / Philips.
It is a fully transistorized radio for portable and vehicle use from the late 80s.
It was used in the Falkland War; improvements suggested there were built in later.
The transceiver is protected against:
> Open or shortcut antenna
> High level RF radiation from nearby transmitters
> Shortcut of the audio output
> Reverse polarity of the supply voltage
The backlit LCD- display shows:
> PRC-2000 configuration
> Channel- freequency and.number; modulation
> Selected HF- output
> Measured HF- output forward and reverse
> Strength of the received signal
> Fault indications
> Diagnose indications
In the first line it is used as a portable radio with NiCad- Battery, Handset and whip antenna.
GRC-2000 is the vehicle version. Here the battery is replaced by a power supply the same size of the battery:

and the radio is fastened to a quick release mounting. The power supply transforms voltages from 10 to 30 VDC to the 14 V needed.
ATU and HF amplifier AM 623
[ < click ]
The combined ATU / HF amplifier AM 623 is relatively big and heavy.
After connecting it to the PRC-2000, three HF outputs are shown: 2, 20, 100 W.
A rod antenna can be screwed on; after attaching the adapter AB-621 on top of the antenna insulator,
also a dipole antenna can be used.
Field Test Set TS2010/01

15 different parameters can be tested, using the included 5 adapter cables (see picture gallery).
The PRC-2000 has the same footprint as several Belgian or Dutch radios; the same mounting and the same battery can be used.
