RELM Wireless Earns FCC Authorization for KNG P25 Mobile Radio

By Jayashree Adkoli, TMCnet Contributor

RELM Wireless Corp., a provider of high-specification, two-way communications equipment, announced that that its latest Project 25 standard “P25” digital mobile radio, the BK Radio KNG M150, has received equipment authorization from the FCC (News - Alert) for use in the United States.

The FCC approval is necessary for all wireless equipments that have to be deployed in U.S.

Operating in the VHF frequency band (136–174MHz), the KNG M150 is a new addition to the KNG portable radio models family. It provides interoperability under the Project 25 “P25”.

Established by the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials - International “APCO,” the Project 25 “P25” demands interoperability among compliant equipment regardless of the manufacturer.

The KNG M150 addresses the requirements of government and public safety professionals. Provided in a sleek, compact package, the digital mobile radio features touch-screen operation, 110 watts of transmit power, high-output receiver audio, Class-A performance and exceptional durability.

Apart from featuring P25 trunking and conventional configurations, the KNG M150 digital mobile radio also features 2,048 channels, GPS capability, AMBE Plus II Vocoder for maximum audio quality and noise reduction, and more.

According to David Storey, president and CEO at RELM, the FCC authorization of the KNG M150 is an important step for RELM. The KNG P150 is designed to address users' demand for smaller units with class-A performance specifications.

The P25 is approved by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. The demand for interoperability increased due to significant communications failures during events such as the 9/11 attacks and Hurricane Katrina.

Officials with RELM said that the company was one of the first manufacturers to develop P25-compliant technology.
