    HF Transceiver Codan Envoy™
    Codan's Envoy™ HF Transceiver system delivers unparalleled dependable, clear, digital voice and data communications in challenging environments.

    The Envoy™ is a powerful software defined radio (SDR) communications tool that allows organisations to create and fulfil several operating scenarios using only the Envoy™. Its amazing digital voice clarity provides clear communications in even in the harshest of radio environments. Using Codan’s advanced digital vocoder option, voice clarity in high noise environments now provides even more dependability when it really counts in the field. Even untrained operators can now overcome frustration common with analogue HF radios.

    In addition to the remarkable digital voice option, the IP connectivity embedded in the Envoy™ now allows control options simply not possible with conventional analogue radios without a lot of add-on accessories. The Envoy™allows voice communication from the field using RF to a base station routed through the Internet to another country in real time.

    Using the built-in IP control capability in the Envoy™gives organisations the following benefits and operational possibilities;

    Remote control of radio transmitter. The operator can now be located remotely from the transmission location. Even in another country!
    Radios can be re-programmed in the field. No more sending radios back to a maintenance depot.
    Radios can be updated in the field. New features can be added remotely.
    Email & Messaging is possible with the Envoy™ built in high-speed data modem
