2050 Features
>> Configuration flexibility The 2050 transceiver is packaged as a desktop (local control) transceiver and with the addition of the simple and inexpensive "Mobile pack" the 2050 is quickly reconfigured to a mobile (trunk mount) transceiver. This feature simplifies the logistics of stocking the right transceiver for the right application. The modular design of the 2000 series of products as a whole enables a basic 2050 transceiver to adapt quickly and easily between base station, mobile and email fax & data configuration.
>> Selective Call Fitted standard with both a CCIR 493-4 based, four and six digit system of which the protocol is available for free distribution and an OEM protocol that is fully compatible with other major HF manufacturers' four and six digit systems that utilise encryption.
>> Direct dial telephone calls "Telcall" option provides direct dialling access with Barrett HF telephone interconnects and most interconnects from other manufacturers.
>> Automatic Link Establishment (ALE) An embedded internal option fully interoperable with
FED-STD 1045 ALE systems. Also capable of full 16 digit telephone dialling (using FED-STD 1045 ALE as the signalling medium) with Barrett 2060 ALE equipped telephone interconnects.

>> Frequency hopping option A simple to operate, unique frequency hopping system that has no network entry time or late entry time. Simply enter the hop band, cipher key number and talk.
>> "Secure Call" An option that provides a medium level of voice encryption for message privacy.
>> HF email, fax and data The 2050 transceiver is fully featured to interface to a variety of internal and external data modems including the Barrett 2020 HF email system that provides full email connectivity via a base station connected to the Internet.
>> SMS pagecall Allows short text messages to be sent from one 2050 transceiver to another. Barrett 2050 transceivers have alpha-numeric input keys (similar to mobile phones) that allow direct text message input (without the need for an external PC or Palm type input device).
>> GPS tracking An option that supports connection to an external GPS receiver for tracking applications using the Barrett 977 tracking system.
>> Digital signal processing (DSP) A single DSP chip provides modulation and demodulation of all on air signalling used in the ALE, Selective Call and syllabic mute processes and provides noise reduction of received signals.
>> Simple architecture The transceiver uses only two microprocessors. The main processor uses a soft loaded core while the second processor is used within the control head to operate the display and keypad.
>> BITE - built-in test equipment Tests receiver performance, Selcall, syllabic mute, VCO operation and serial communications port viability.
>> Programming by IR or serial port For ease of programming in a vehicle a notebook computer loaded with the 2000 series programming package can load a transceiver's parameters without the need for cables through the remote head IR port.
>> Second antenna connectorAllows each channel to select one of two antennas - ideal when long and short distance antennas are used.
The Barrett 2050 is a versatile and rugged 1.6 MHz to 30 MHz, 125 W PEP, field proven HF transceiver that can be easily configured to customers' exact operational requirements.

The Barrett 2050 provides all common modes of HF transmission, all currently used Selective Call formats, MIL-STD 188-141B Automatic Link Establishment, and a new generation, simple to operate, Frequency Hopping option.
2050 HF transceiver

The 2050, housed in a lightweight, extremely strong sealed aluminium chassis, meets MIL- STD 810G for drop, dust, temperature, shock and vibration.

Teaming the 2050 transceiver with other 2000 series products provides email, fax, telephone and data connectivity within an HF network and onwards to both the international telephone network and the internet.
