The 2062 HF-VHF/UHF crossgate provides seamless communications between HF and VHF/UHF networks. The Barrett 2062 Crossgate is an effective and affordable solution for extending the line of sight reach of a conventional VHF/UHF networks by linking them to an HF network using Barrett’s HF transceivers.
The 2062 can also be used to give field operators with VHF/UHF handheld radios access to the HF network when away from their vehicles. The 2062 crosspatch links or unlinks the HF and VHF/UHF networks by either a specific Selcall sent from a station on the HF network or by a specific DTMF sequence sent by a station on the VHF/UHF network. When the networks are linked, received audio from the HF network is broadcast on the VHF/UHF network and vice versa.
Simple operations by both the HF or VHF/UHF users connect the two networks together.
The 2062 Crossgate measures only 150 mm x 66 mm x 41 mm enabling its easy installation into today’s modern vehicles.
A universal interface is available to connect most types of VHF/UHF transceiver to the 2062 Crossgate. Full wiring details for commonly used VHF/UHF transceivers are available on request. Connection to the Barrett 2050 transceiver is made by the cable provided.
The 2062 automatically disconnects the HF and VHF/UHF network after 10 minutes of inactivity.
