RELM Wireless Receives FCC Authorization For Its P25 UHF KNG Mobile Radios

WEST MELBOURNE, Fla., Jan. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- RELM Wireless Corporation (NYSE Amex: RWC) announced today that its newest P25 digital mobile radios, the BK Radio KNG M400 and M500, have received equipment authorization from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for use in the United States.  The KNG M400 and M500 provide interoperability under the Project 25 standard (P25) established by the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials - International (APCO).

The KNG M400 and M500 operate in the UHF frequency band; 380–470MHz and 440-520MHz, respectively.  They join RELM's other KNG portable and mobile models in addressing the requirements of government and public safety professionals.  These radios incorporate the same impressive array of features first introduced last year with the M150, all in a sleek, compact package.  These features include:

  • touch-screen operation, an industry-first
  • 50 watts of transmit power
  • high-output receiver audio
  • 2,048 channels
  • P25 trunking and conventional configurations
  • GPS capability
  • AMBE Plus II Vocoder for maximum audio quality and noise reduction
  • Class-A performance and exceptional durability.

RELM President and CEO David Storey commented, "The authorizations of the KNG M400 and M500 by the FCC are additional important new product milestones for RELM.  These models represent our first new digital mobile radios in the UHF band, which now enable us to compete for opportunities and customers that previously were outside the operating scope of our product line.  We believe the KNG M400 and M500 will be well received by prospective customers, offering an extensive feature-set and world-class performance."

About APCO Project 25 (P25)

APCO Project 25 (P25), which requires interoperability among compliant equipment regardless of the manufacturer, was established by the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials and is approved by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.  The shift toward interoperability gained momentum as a result of significant communications failures during events such as the 9/11 attacks and Hurricane Katrina.  RELM was one of the first manufacturers to develop P25-compliant technology.
