    There is information that Codan announce that they starting with new manpack radio Sentry - H 6110MP.

    Codan Sentry H 6100MP Manpack Radio

    I think its sad news because 2110 was really Great radio and its designed like manpack and with that reason have lot of advantages.
    Its declared that Sentry -H 6110MP will provide 30 watt out and battery life up to 55 hours.
    Its looks for me unreal because 6110MP is just Codan Sentry radio in manpack case and with reduced output power and again Sentry is need lot of current
    According to spec of Sentry Radio its " Rx: 650 mA (backlight min, audio muted);" its too much for manpack radio.
    AT Sentry Radio Specification
    Of course when we talking about battery life all those 3G ALE and modems, DV is reducing battery life dramaticly.
    There is many questions of course like handset quality etc
    Ok let me study it better but again its very sad 2110 radio is obsolete.
    We will see what will happen with commercial market but probably there will Envoy manpack radio.

    When you buy radio anyway you need to look whom you trust and what kind of the support you can have in your country and in your area.
    Thats very important.

    Interesting article on Army Technology nothing really new probably but anyway :

    In the years after the Gulf War many, and especially the American military, became increasingly dependent on the GPS constellation to provide positioning, navigation and timing for everything from warships, combat aircraft and guided missiles, to individual soldiers on the ground. But is it still so revolutionary? Dr Gareth Evans reports.

    To avoid problem with GPS AT Communication supplying AT GNSS unit

    Export permits
    Export permits is one of the complicated part of purchasing radios.
    Many manufacturer is do the business internationally.
    Some of them manufacturing radios with different brand in different countries.
    You need to remember if your supplier located in US, Australia, Israel .... and you buying equipment from their UK or German office for example you will need export permit not only from country of origin but also from UK or Germany even if you pay money directly to manufacturer and office is involve only in marketing or negotiation.
    If your supplier dont do that its ILLEGAL and can count as illegal sale and create lot of problem and not only to supplier but also you can be in trouble also.
    If country of supplier is member of Wassenaar agreement you can ask your supplier if he have license to manufacture encryption units and if its certifyed.
    Some companies saling encryption illegally and again that can create you problem.
    More information about wassennaar agreement you can see here

    Support
    Support is very important part for any kind of the equipment
    What we need to know?
    Some manufacturer need export permit for any part of their radio ( like Harris for example) thats make it quite complicated and if your radio will fail you will need to wait for parts some time months :-(.
    If political situation in your country will change and your country will be under some sanctions you will be not able to get any support for that equipment.
    Of course local representative or closest service centers.
    You need to see and check your self how educated those guys are and if they can answer your questions and also if they will be able to support your equipment locally specially if there is small fault.
    That will save you lot of time and money.
    I see number of the local dealers in situation when radio is fail they pack it and send to manufacturer to repair you can imagine how long that will take and you cant really expect support from such dealer and you can count he is not exist in your country because that will only delay things.
