Long Range HF Communications Systems - HF Single Sideband Mobile & Base Station Radios

Long Range HF Radio Communications Systems (SSB)

Timberline Radio Systems Ltd., supplies HF SSB Long Range Radio Systems for Mining Companies, Humanitarian Aid Organizations, Scientific Research, and Environmental Organizations. HF Radio, otherwise known as High-Frequency, is used in places where conventional communications are difficult to access or completely non-existent. The main purpose of HF is to provide long range Voice & Data communications (Mostly voice) in harsh, remote conditions. Skywave Radio Waves Bounce HF Radio Short Wave Radio Unlike VHF or UHF Systems, HF Radio Systems take advantage of the Ionosphere at atmospheric levels to "bounce" the radio signal from the ground, to the sky and back to ground where the signal is received.

For over a century, Military, Aviation, Marine, Arctic and Antarctic Scientists, as well as Ham Radio Operators have used HF as a standard, everyday communications tool because they know HF Radio will always work. As long as there's still one operator on the air and one radio, your communications will be heard for hundreds, even thousands of miles.

HF Communications uses Larger than normal Antennas, and Long Wires, that can be mounted anywhere from a Vehicle Bumper, to a Tree-Top of self supporting pole.

HF Single Side Band (USB / LSB ) radios are used in many applications including Wildlife Research, Scientific Operations, Marine Navigation, Long Range Aircraft, Logging & Bush Operations, Military, Government and International NGO's.

Product Sheet / User Manual

Why HF Radio ?

In today’s world of instant voice, email, messaging, fax and GPS navigation, what has High Frequency (HF) radio to offer? Surprisingly perhaps, HF radio provides all of these options and has several important advantages over other communications media.

HF radio will never replace fixed and mobile telephony as the first communications option for the general public, but for organisations involved in emergency, remote and military communications it is a vital and irreplaceable wireless communications tool.

Long Range Communications Capability

Whilst VHF and UHF radio is also commonly used for short-range line-of sight (LOS) communications, only HF is capable of communicating over distances of 3000 km or more.

Minimal Infrastructure Requirements

Unlike conventional, Voice Over IP (VoIP), cellular and satellite telephony, which all rely upon land-based infrastructure, an HF radio network requires minimal infrastructure. As such it is often the only reliable means of communication when disaster strikes.

Full Mobility

HF radio is simple and quick to deploy and provides communications capability for users no matter where they are. Fixed base stations can be used to communicate with other bases or to provide command and control for mobile (vehicle-mounted) and portable (manpack) users in the field.

HF radio can be used to communicate with existing VHF and UHF radio systems, cellular telephones and land-based telephones through developments in cross-patching technology that make this as easy as dialling a telephone number.

Low Cost of Ownership

Compared with satellite telephony, the most common alternative technology for communications of last resort, HF radio is the economical choice. Once the initial investment in equipment is made, there are no call costs or ongoing monthly line or equipment rentals. Also, HF radio equipment is built tough to withstand the extreme conditions, which proves to be very cost-effective.

Command and Control

The nature of emergency planning requires that simultaneous communications be made to and amongst a number of operators in a command and control style network. This facilitates situational awareness amongst the users and external organisations that can also be included in the network. HF radio provides this capability in all base station, mobile (vehicle-mounted) and portable manpack configurations of the radio network.

Security of Communications

Where communications are sensitive, HF radio offers technologies to ensure the security of voice and data transmissions. The military uses HF radio as its primary communications medium and from the military have come a number of enhancements in voice encryption and frequency hopping which guarantee secure communications. For non-military use, different levels of encryption are available to suit the individual organisation’s security requirements.
