Enter the New Age of Digital with Rugged Radios

RDH-16C Digital Handheld Radio

ARROYO GRANDE, California (April 10, 2018) – With crystal clear audio quality, racers prefer the sound of a digital 2-way radio and now you can get your hands on it with the RDH-16C Digital 5-Watt Handheld Radio from Rugged Radios. Perfect for short course and road racing, this handheld radio comes with 16 easy-to-use channels allowing you to get in the race car and go!

The new RDH-16C Digital Handheld Radio comes with automatic error correction. Not only does error correction cancel out loud-engine background noise, but it can also rebuild voice data if a signal becomes corrupted. Digital voice transmissions also carry through to distances where analog radios start to fade, ensuring that your message is still heard loud and clear.

The RDH-16C Radio is capable of both digital & analog signals and comes pre-programmed with a selection of both analog and digital channels. If you are transmitting to a second digital radio, you can do so on a digital channel, but if you need to talk to an analog radio, you can simply change over to an analog channel and start your conversation.
