is scheduled to first ship about late April of 2017. First working prototype was
shipped on schedule and second prototype is expected to ship about March 10, 2017.
the outside, the CS800D looks exactly like the CS800 including the removable head.
This allows the user to remotely mount the head from the body with only CAT 5
cable between the two. All pieces necessary for remote mounting is supplied with
the exception of the CAT 5 cable.
the inside, the CS800D is different. The radio uses a double conversion superhet
design with seperate tuned front end design for maximum sensitivity and minimum
interference from nearby radios.The radio has two independent power amplifiers.
Switching between UHF and VHF is by means of solid state switches instead of unreliable
relays. Bluetooth and GPS will be available.
is the same as the standard CS800 so you can expect our radios to be at the leading
edge of technology for a long time. CPS is the same as the standard CS800 except
we have the ability to have both UHF and VHF frequencies in the same radio.
we have not seen any competitors yet, you can expect those to be based on the
single chip radios used in the $25 Baofeng radios. Advanced features for those
radios will probably be minimal.
