NHRC-5 Repeater Controller
A Linking Repeater Controller with Stored Speech

The NHRC-5 is a linking repeater controller with real stored speech. Its highly integrated design, built with state-of-the-art components, results in a powerful controller with a low parts count. This increases reliability and lowers cost.

The controller has a "primary" and a "secondary" radio port. The primary port is used for the controlling repeater, and the secondary port can be used for a remote base, link radio, or "slaved" repeater. Unique courtesy tones provide feedback of the input source and link state.

The controller is programmable by sending DTMF sequences. The CW ID, hang time, ID timer, timeout timer and tail message counter can all be programmed by the user. All programming is password-protected, and is stored in non-volatile EEPROM memory.
