The power-boosting Base Station for the combat-proven AN/PRC-148 family of radios provides a cost-effective
fixed site configuration. The Base Station provides 20 Watts of RF power amplification across the full 30-512
MHz frequency band while allowing for a wide range of AC and DC input power sources. Packaged in a rugged
, easily transportable transit case weighing less than 60 pounds, the compact Base Station leverages the
field-proven handheld radio and vehicular AN/PRC-148 products to provide a low-risk, high-performance
solution for command post and base operations communications requirements. With a common human machine
interface, users familiar with any of the AN/PRC-148 family products can immediately operate the Base Station.
This commonality also translates into a simpler sustainment concept and faster repair times because fewer
elements need to be stocked for field or depot repair. This results in lower life cycle costs to support the
Base Station as well as the complete AN/PRC-148 family of products.
