Radio Communication in our vehicle…


 

 Hey my beloved Troopermania….? How do you do…? How every things are going on….?  I believe that every things are OK with you and your family as I do. Don’t you…?

OK anyway,  I am back again to visit all of you and share a little things about the radio communication equipment. I believe that this info will worth for you as a people who like to moving above the wheels. Above of our da Trooper.

The journey with our friend with some vehicles and go in convoy would be more enjoyable if every things that we plan during the trip well done as per schedule. But some time due to a lack of communication, we missing the direction or missing the way that we must follow due to we change of the destination on the move, and unlucky we do not knew exactly where we have to go thru to reach the destination, while the cellular phone  that we use does not work due to a blank spot around the area.  This condition will be getting worse and worse in the night day. It would become a night mare too if this happen so long. It is also may will cause you in under pressure condition which also may make you frustrated.

In this occasion I may share you about the radio communications that may will  help us to find some one who can we talk to and probably would help you  to solve whatever problem you have during the trip. I suggest you to installed a radio communication on your da Trooper or another of  your vehicle. Before we go thru may I introduce you about the radio communications.

There is a few  radio communication offer in the town based on our needs. According to the working frequency of it, the radio communication could be divided into three kinds. The High Frequency (HF)  communication, Very High Frequency (VHF)communication and an Ultra High Frequency (UHF) radio communication.

The High Frequency or HF radio communication usually use as by citiband radio or CBers, or a amateur radio which is work on a Single Side Band (SSB) with the length of the wave within 10 meter to 11 meter band, the frequency is within 26.025 Mhz to 28.00 Mhz while another band from 12 to 80 meter band with frequency 29.000 Mhz to 21.000 Mhz and it’s also work on the Single Side Band or SSB mode. The equipment  of the HF radio communication quiet big and it is quiet complicated to use it during we drive. As we have to set up and tuning in the radio to the right sharp frequency before we can start to use it. Working on this frequency must be have a license according to the class emission privilege.

The Very High Frequency or VHF radio communication or famous as a 2 meters radio communication is work on a 2 meter length of the wave of the frequency. It is very simply to operate this radio. Just switch it on and dial the frequency to what we have agree for and that’s it. We can start to use it to communication equipment. No needs any special set up. Just switch it on and dial the frequency It is work on FM or Frequency Modulation mode. It is work on 142 Mhz to 147.000 Mhz. And the sound of the voice is also quiet nice to heard. The VHF available on a Handy Talky with battery charges and a rig. Handy Talky may carrying on the field, while the rig must mounting on the dashboard of our vehicle.

The Ultra High Frequency or UHF or famous by U radio has the length of 70 cm wave radio length. This kind of the radio also work on a FM which is would generate a clear and nice voice we can heard. But the wave of this frequency not strength as a VHF since it wave need a higher antenna that we have built to have a better receive. Further more, the radio it self not use by many people, it is only use by any of the commercial company and by the police. It is also ease to operate this radio as it is exactly the same with the VHF radio equipment. The different only on the frequency of it work. It is work on the 430 Mhz, while the VHF work on 144. Mhz.

From those kinds of radio equipment, we suggest you to get the 2 meter band or VHF as it simply to operate and simply size and durable. And of course a good prices. There is a few of the brand we can found in the town. Like  Icom, Kenwood, Yaezu, Standard and Alinco, made in  Japan even there is also a China product with a cheaper prices.

For mobile station you may choice a Icom  IC2000, IC2100, IC2200 series, Kenwood TM or SQ 241, TM251, TM261 or TM 271, Yaezu FR212, FR 214 FT1500 or FT 2800 series. Beside you may choice the product of Alinco 135DR or the newest. But for the received based on my experience, we only recommend to install the product from Icom, Kenwood or Yaezu on our vehicle as they have a better filter receiver which generate a nice voice compare to Alinco product. It is quiet noisy during received on the vehicle. The second hand radio for Icom and Kenwood for IC 2000 and IC 2100 series about IDR.1.100.000 to IDR.1.500.000,- depend on its condition, while the brand new of IC 2200 sell for IDR.2.100.000 per unit. This is the last up dated from Icom, while Kenwood for IDR.1.100.000 to IDR.1.300.000 for TM251, 261 and 271 depend of the conditions as well. While the brand new of TM 271 is IDR.1.900.000,- 

To enable to use the radio, you also need the antenna and the mounting bracket, cable and connector of the antenna.  If you already applied the bumper which has the hook of the connector antenna like ARB or TJM model, you only need to have a connector with cable. It is ease to install it.

There is also a few model of the antenna for the 2 meter band radio communication. The top brand is Diamond, with available on a few model. There also a Comet, Daiwa, Larsen etc.

The price of the antenna also in a vary, start from IDR.125.000 to IDR. 600.000 depend of the brand and model.

We recommend to have an antenna without a loading on it stick as if we drive our vehicle to the jungle and the antenna hit the branch of the tree,  it may will broken.  Find the antenna with no loading on the stick like Larsen. There is only a stick on it’s connector. The length of the stick about 1.20 meter. It has a good received and transmitter ability.  The cost also only about IDR.135.000.

To legal  using the radio communication, I suggest to get in touch with the Government Telecommunication offices (now is DepKomInfo) which is will help us and apply for a licence. In Indonesia we have two different organization of the radio communication. One Call RAPI or Radio Antar Penduduk Indonesia and the other one is ORARI or Organisasi Amatir Radio Indonesia.

In this case, we can choice one of them, but again we have to ask our self and our needs. What we needs..? If we need the radio communication to support our vehicle during our journey or trip only, I suggest to join with RAPI as it is quiet ease to be a member. If you need to be an amateur radio and advance people in amateur, lets joint in ORARI. Please contact their offices.

Want to joint…?

Hope this share info will help you or whoever needs the information about radio communication for their vehicle.

Cheers….
