Sentry-V Military VHF radio

The Sentry-V handheld VHF radio belongs to the Codan Sentry range of military ruggedized radios. It provides secure voice and messaging transmission across VHF, analog and digital networks in a compact and handheld form. With DMR technology as standard it is able to support one to one voice calls/messaging, group calls, remote radio monitoring and radio check functions. For network flexibility, it has DVOA (digital voice over analog) protocols that use advanced digital coding technology for superior voice clarity over legacy analogue FM repeaters. Sentry-V has the advanced features of a military VHF radio with the Codan quality you can trust.
