    SIKA Radio Tracking Receiver

    We have developed a highly sophisticated receiver able to cover from 138 - 174 MHz. Despite its compactness, it has all the advantages of storing and scanning frequencies and is more rainproof than any other receiver designed for radio-tracking.

    • Rainproof & dust-tight
    • Up to 30 MHz frequency band (within 138-174 MHz)
    • Small, light & tough
    • 256 user-programmable channels
    • Scanning function
    • Frequency table upload from a PC
  • Frequency Band
    • The receiver covers 8 or 30 MHz band on frequencies between 138.000 and 174 MHz
    • Fine tuning in 1kHz or 0.1kHz steps
    Functions and Controls
    • Direct frequency entry from the membrane keypad (no need to enter MHz part of frequency each time a frequency is set)
    • 256 user-programmable channels
    • Scanning of all or selected channels (scan interval 1 to 999 s, settable to 1 s resolution)
    • Internal speaker
    • Headphones socket (switches out internal speaker)
