Aeronautical Radios
VHF-AM Transceivers
Morcom offers the most complete line of VHF equipment for aeronautical ground-to-air communications.

Whether you require a simple VHF-AM handheld or mobile radio, or a sophisticated VHF Multimode nationwide network, you will find the solution here.We have an excellent Icom line of products available for portable VHF-AM communications, such as the IC-A6, IC-A14, IC-A24, and IC-A25 which according to aeronautical VHF radio reviews are the most cost-effective portable aviation radios in the market. In the mobile radio category, the IC-A120 is the unit of choice. This mobile VHF radio features a 10 W output and exceptional reliability in demanding operational requirements. It can operate from a 12 V and a 24 V power source.

The Park Air T6 “Sapphire” VHF radio base station is ideal for a professional application. The cutting-edge VHF transceiver is designed to be the most advanced platform for air-to-ground communications. The T6 was designed to operate in an IP environment and is entirely software configurable, either locally by connecting to its built-in web-server or by a remote control and monitoring system. The “Sapphire” has three independently addressable IP ports: two on the rear for autonomous network connectivity and one on the front for easy browser access to the built-in maintenance web server.

In addition to the traditional AM-Voice mode of operation, various data waveform options can anticipate sustained growth in data-link services. These include ACARS, VDL-M2, and Wideband AM Data. This VHF base radio unit has a maximum output power of 50 watts (programmable to a lower power) and a frequency range of 118 to 137MHz (extended frequency option available to 156 MHz). This unit is authorized by the FCC and the telecommunication authorities of several other countries. For a detailed description of this radio, you can click here to download a data-sheet. 

For airlines, civil aviation authorities, and other customers need a complete turnkey system with advanced capabilities such as remote control of multiple VHF radios, wide area ATN/VHF implementation, or VHF over VOIP networks. Morcom offers complete systems design and implementation services.

Portable VHF-AM Transceiver

The FSG-2T-PS is a portable VHF-AM transceiver used as a backup radio for air traffic control towers or as a transportable ground-to-air-communications unit for field operations (disaster relief coordination, temporary helicopter landing sites, military operations, etc.). This reliable, robust unit operates in the frequency range of 118.000 to 136.975 MHz, has 20 memory programmable channels, and an output of 16 Watts P.E.P (5 W carrier). The unit is packaged in a sturdy metal case and includes a hand microphone, whip antenna, battery, and battery charger. 

UHF-AM Transceivers

The 225MHz to 400MHz band (Military UHF) is reserved for aeronautical and military radio communications. Morcom can supply radio transmitters and receivers in this band for use by authorized civilian and military applications. 

Portable UHF-AM Transceiver

Of particular interest is our FSG-7016 handheld, portable UHF-AMTransceiver. Dittel's compact, rugged portable UHF unit is one of the only hand-held radios that can operate in AM modulation over the entire 225-400MHz band. Additionally, it is water and shock-resistant, allowing it to operate in the most extreme conditions. The FSG-7016 is currently used by all the U.S. Forces (Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines) and the military of allied countries. The FSG-7016 is ideal for use as a search and rescue radio, forward air control (FAC), and taxi-way operations. Morcom is proud to have the United States Navy Blue Angels as a customer.

Vehicular UHF-AM Transceiver

The RTU-200 is the only transceiver on the market designed explicitly as a vehicular mobile UHF radio that can be installed in most vehicles. With a robust 15 Watt RF carrier output, the RTU-200 will provide you the necessary range in the military 225-400 MHz band. With a modern, compact design and compatibility with standard handsets, this unit will provide you with the flexibility you need at an affordable price.

The RTU-200 has been proven in multiple applications with theU.S. services and overseas. Here are some of its main specifications:

  • Frequency range: 225 + 400 MHz
  • RF Power Output:  15 W (carrier) in AM mode and 40 W in FM mode
  • Channel spacing: 25 kHz
  • Modulation: AM  (A3E) and FM/PM  (G3E)
  • Power supply: 24 Vdc
  • Power consumption 7 A at 24 VDC 
  • Weight: 5 kg (11 lbs)
  • Operating temperature: -10° to +55°C
  • Storage temperature:  -40° to  +70°C
Contract Vehicle: This item is available under GSA Contract number GS-35F-026DA
Portable UHF-AM Transceiver

We have available a UHF-AM version of the “Sapphire” family from Park Air Systems. The T6 Radio was created with the future in mind. The critical parameters of network connectivity, environmental sustainability, and long service life have all been central to design and specification decisions.

The T6 was designed to operate in an IP environment and is entirely software configurable. The T6 frequency range is 225 MHz to 400 Mhz.

VHF/ UHF-AM M7 Base Station Transceiver

This is a VHF/UHF Dual-Band base station transceiver.
