Hytera Goes To War!

U.S. soldiers are the best equipped combatants in the world.  Personal radios can easily cost thousand dollars per soldier.  This is a luxury that is not affordable to freedom fighters (aka rebels) such as those in Libya.  They need reliable communications, good performance and low cost.  So what do they use?  We'll let NBC News speak for us!

NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams focused on the Libyan rebels equipment in the July 28th edition of NBC Evening News of their ongoing struggles to liberate the country from dictator Muammar Gaddafi and the Hytera PD782 was right in the middle of everything!

The picture at the upper left shows a Hytera Model PD782, one of our more popular and affordable radios being used in combat in Libya.  It's got MIL-SPEC capability, plenty of power (both RF and audio), Unit ID, even digital encryption for less than half the cost of even the most affordable "combat" radios.  We just thought you might like to know that good radios don't have to be expensive!
