The PRC-2090 is a rugged and exceptionally specified HF Tactical transceiver with all the features available from the traditional tactical transceivers suppliers at a more realistic price. The PRC-2090 transceiver is equipped with a fully automatic antenna tuner allowing the deployment of a full range of tactical and static antennas.
All connections to the IP67 rated manpack are made using MIL-STD connectors. Configuring the PRC-2090 is simple using an intuitive Windows based programming system through the auxiliary socket.

The PRC-2090 tactical radio system comprises the PRC-2090 manpack transceiver as well as vehicle and base docking stations. When in a vehicle and base station mode the PRC-2090 will operate full 100 W PEP RF power output in voice mode.
