Pactor modem P4dragon DR-7800

The DR-7800 has been optimized for use with the new high-end data transmission mode PACTOR-4. This offers unexcelled fast and robust data links via shortwave; E-mail almost like at home – from any point on earth. The DR-7800 is software compatible to the PTC-II series so that existing PACTOR software (AirMail, RMS Express, Alpha etc) can continue to be used. The elegant design, and the excellently readable and informative OLED display, as well as the easy upgrade possibilities (free updates!) round up the concept of the most modern short-wave modem from SCS, the creators of PACTOR.

PTC-IIIusb PACTOR 3 installed
 

The PTC-IIIusb allows direct connection to a USB interface of the modern notebook, and thus expands the SCS equipment program. The PTC-IIIusb is constructed using existing equipment technology and its application is to be found mainly in the connection of clients. As a speciality, the PTC-IIIusb is equipped with a transceiver control port, which allows remote control of the connected radio via software.

Tracker / DSP TNC

http://www.scs-ptc.com/news/new-tracker/new-tracker-front-view/image_previewThe “Tracker/DSP TNC” has been designed by SCS for custom applications of transferring GPS positions and other small and reappearing sets of data from e.g. remote sensors by HF or VHF radio transmission using the new SCS "Robust-Packet" modulation. Typical applications are weather stations and the tracking of vessels, cars, trucks, containers and airplanes. The unit receives the GPS data from any external NMEA device and reports it to the host station.

Technical Data

Modulations

APRS-Tracking-Mode

Position tracking mode to be activated by DIP-switch. Transmission of fixed or via NMEA (GPS) given position in free programmable time intervals in APRS format. Here the Tracker operates in "sleep mode" and just draws 15 mA of current (@ 13.8 V). Shortly before the next scheduled transmission it wakes up, switches on the radio, checks the channel for occupancies (DCD) and transmits the APRS datagram as soon as the channel is free. Afterwards the radio is switched off again and the Tracker enters "sleep mode".

TRXPTC

The TRXPTC is a modem board for installation into nearly any transceiver. The board offers three connector rows for internal cabling of the required signals. Externally the TRXPTC uses a Bluetooth connection to the computer (requires a Bluetooth interface in the computer).
The benefit of this solution is the reduced space requirements, no need to isntall an external modem. Additionally the Bluetooth connection offers the best flexibility and convenience when using the system.
The TRXPTC supports all modes known from the traditional PTC: Pactor-1 and -2 (Pactor-3 requires an optional license upgrade), Amtor, RTTY, Packet Radio, PSK31 and many more. Futhermore the device supports CAT control of most transceivers, the connection to a NMEA capable GPS device etc. Size: 60 x 90mm.

PTC cables

For Pactor a Pactor audio cable is required. This cable carries the audio signals for Pactor and the PTT information. Frequency, band and mode is selected manually on the radio.

If you want to have the frequency and mode controlled automatically by the Pactor controller, an additional CAT cable is required. If the software you use supports CAT commands the Pactor operation becomes as easy as sending an e-mail: Just click on 'Send' (for example with Airmail/Winlink2000) and the software will set the transceiver to the required frequency. Then it tries to connect to a mailbox. If this fails anonther frequency is selected automatically and tried there.

For packet radio another cable between the PTC and the VHF/UHF radio is required.

We offer cables for some transceivers. Of course it is also possible to build these cables yourselves, the required connectors for the PTC are included.

Pactor audio cable Icom standard
This cable connects the PTC-IIpro/PTC-IIusb/PTC-IIex directly to the ACC socket of an Icom transceiver, standard on most Icom rigs. IC-706/703/718 requires an Icom adaptor cable OPC-599 or use the SCS audio cable 40105.110 (below).
